OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and according to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the following protective measures are being taken for the health and safety of our patients and staff:
We conduct an abbreviated health screening with patients prior to scheduling an appointment. Additional health screening is performed when the patient arrives.
To limit the number of people in a confined area, only one guest is permitted in the facility. Children are not allowed.
Masks are recommended in our facilities.
Patient and staff areas and frequently used items will be disinfected regularly before and after any contact. Personal sanitation supplies are available throughout the facility.
We continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 in our area and make adjustments to these protective measures as needed.
Pregnancy symptoms are different for every woman. Some possible common pregnancy symptoms may include:
A missed period
Tender, swollen breasts
Just because you may be experiencing these symptoms may not necessarily mean you are pregnant. Only a physician can diagnose pregnancy. The only way for you to know for sure that you are pregnant is to have an ultrasound exam so that our Medical Director may confirm that you have a viable intrauterine pregnancy.
Our staff is ready to welcome and help you. Call (478) 216-5176 to schedule an appointment.
Before taking emergency contraception, it is important to connect with a medical professional who can further explain what it is and how it affects your body.
Emergency contraception is taken after a woman has unprotected sex or her birth control method has failed. There are risks and side effects associated with emergency contraceptives one should be aware of, such as:
Menstrual pain or cramps
Emergency contraceptives, such as Ella or the Plan B pill, should not be confused with the abortion pill, Mifeprex, known as RU-486.
Finding out you’re pregnant can be an emotional and difficult experience. You have three options when you become pregnant: parenting, adoption, and abortion. Our medical team is available to talk with you about your options and answer your questions.
The gestational age of the fetus determines the abortion method. An ultrasound is used to measure how far along someone is in pregnancy.
As a woman in the state of Georgia, there are certain rights you have by law and specific information that is required to be made available to you to protect you throughout the abortion process.
It is your right to be informed, to know what procedure might be used, and the risks associated with each. When signing consent for an abortion, you are acknowledging you have been informed of:
Your medical risks associated with the chosen procedure
The probable age of the fetus at the time the abortion is scheduled
This checklist is a helpful tool as you determine what information you still need before moving forward.
Have you had an abortion? Many women who have had an abortion report experiencing strong emotions, such as an overwhelming sense of sadness. Your feelings matter. Whatever your experience may have been or will be in the future, we are here for you.
In a one-on-one, highly confidential setting, we will listen to where you’ve been and encourage you right where you are.
Let us walk alongside you – contact us for more information.

Have you taken the first dose of the Abortion Pill, Mifepristone (Mifeprex or RU-486)? Have you changed your mind and wish you could reverse the effects of the abortion pill?
