Appointments are necessary for our medical services to give you the time and attention you deserve. Walk-ins are welcome for our other services.
All of our services are free. Even pregnancy testing and ultrasound.
All client information is kept confidential unless we have your written permission to share it, or in situations where required by Minnesota statute.
The nurse will have your results within a few minutes. However, please allow more time for your appointment to complete the necessary paperwork and to discuss your concerns and get important information.
Yes, you must be late or have missed your period to get an accurate test reading. However, you are welcome to come in earlier if you just need someone to talk things through with.
Our pregnancy tests will detect as little as 10 mlU/hCG (unit of measuring human chorionic gonadotropin – the hormone which your body produces during pregnancy), compared to over-the-counter tests which may only detect between 25 and 100 mlU. This means that our tests have more sensitivity and will be more likely to detect a pregnancy earlier.
If work or school prevents you from coming in during office hours, call us at 507-637-2534 to arrange for an appointment that will better fit your schedule.
Parenting classes are one-on-one with a mentor to meet your individual needs, and are scheduled as you have time. Most people choose to come 2 – 3 times each month (some more, some less). Most classes take 1 to 1 ½ hours.
We recommend individual sessions so that you can have lessons that fit your needs exactly. If you and a friend want to come at the same time, we’ll usually schedule you with two different educators. If your partner wants to attend with you, you may take lessons together.
We have MANY classes to choose from, but it is your choice as to how many and which ones you take. They start with early pregnancy, and cover childbirth and infancy. Many people keep coming even after the baby is born to learn more about each stage of parenting as their child grows.
Yes! Men are welcome to accompany their partners to medical appointments, discuss pregnancy options, get helpful information, and participate in the Earn While You Learn program. We have some information especially for dads, and some that is helpful for both parents.
We do not perform or refer for abortions. We do provide accurate and complete information about abortion procedures and related risks.
YES! You don’t have to be from Redwood County or have a certain income to come here. If you need information or support in a challenging pregnancy or early parenting situation, please contact us. We will talk to you about what we can offer. If your needs go beyond what we can provide, we will help you find other useful resources too.
We do not dispense contraceptives. We will gladly provide information and discuss contraceptive methods with you. However, we recommend that you talk to your health care provider if you decide those methods are compatible with your lifestyle and values.
We do not provide adoption services. If you are considering making an adoption plan, we can provide information about several adoption agencies you might want to work with.
