Perhaps you’ve encountered a situation that caught you off guard, leaving you with pressing questions or concerns about pregnancy, contraception, or related matters. It’s possible you’re reading this with worries about a potential pregnancy, unsure of where to turn for guidance. Discussions about pregnancy and sex are deeply personal and sensitive, often challenging to bring up even with trusted loved ones.

No matter the circumstances that brought you here, PRC Grand Rapids is here for you. We offer a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment where you can bring your questions and concerns without reservation. Whether you’re grappling with uncertainties or seeking clarity, we’re dedicated to providing the support and resources you need during what may feel like overwhelming times.

What is a Pregnancy Resource Center?

Pregnancy Resource Centers (also known as Pregnancy Centers, Women’s Centers, or similar titles) offer support services for women dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. The services available at pregnancy centers are typically offered at a very minimal or no cost. Across the United States, there are over 2,000 pregnancy centers, some operating independently and others as part of larger networks. 

There are some pregnancy centers that focus solely on providing information and non-medical assistance, while others deliver medical care and employ nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals. As with any organization, each pregnancy resource center operates differently, offering varying services and providing unique experiences depending on many factors.

Who We Are NOT

We are NOT an OB-GYN or Emergency Room. While we do have medical professionals on staff, our services are limited to the above pregnancy-related offerings. We do not claim or intend to take the place of a primary medical provider.

We are NOT an abortion clinic. We will respectively provide you with facts and information about abortion and abortion alternatives, but we do not perform or refer women for abortions.

We are NOT here to make a decision for you or to pressure you into making a decision. The support we provide at PRC Grand Rapids is not provided with any hidden agenda or small print. Our doors are open because we care about you and want to be here to support you through this unexpected time the best we can.

Abortion and Abortion Alternatives

Abortion has long been a controversial topic in society. As a result, many women facing unexpected circumstances may feel overwhelmed and uncertain about their available options. In times of extreme stress and fear, the urgency to find a quick solution can often lead to rushed decisions based on limited information, and later regret.

There are various reasons why women may consider abortion, including feelings of having no alternative or concerns about lacking support from the birth father, their family, or those around them. While abortion is indeed an option, it is not the only option available. Our aim is to guide you through all available options, empowering you to make the decision that aligns best with your needs and values.

We are Here for You! 

Our mission at PRC Grand Rapids is to serve as your support during (and even after) pregnancy. We strive to offer a safe, nurturing environment where you can pause, reflect, and gain factual information about all the options and resources at your disposal. Our goal is to empower you to make a well-informed and secure decision for yourself and your future.

We firmly believe that no woman should navigate such challenging circumstances alone, and we are dedicated to providing assistance in any way possible.
