Pregnancy Clinics of Annapolis, Bowie Crofton and Severna Park

Our goal is to give women facing an unexpected pregnancy the tools, support, and resources she needs to choose life for her baby. We do this through free pregnancy testing and options counseling. We offer resource referrals and help each woman think through her individual circumstances and find what she needs. Additionally, we offer the ultrasound to help women considering abortion to determine if their pregnancy is living or will miscarry. Through this process, many women find the courage they didn't know they had, and choose life for their child.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To give women the tools they need to choose life for their babies.

Many women who have had an abortion report that if just one person had said that they would help, that they would have chosen life for their child. At the Pregnancy Clinics, we strive to be that person. Through counseling, support, resources, and the ultrasound, we help women find the courage to choose life despite overwhelming life pressures.

In order to make this happen, we advertise strategically in as many avenues as possible, seeking to become the first place that women turn to when they find out that they are pregnant. We advertise through Google Adwords and use social media, community engagement, agency connections, and other media to help reach women in need.

In over 40 years of serving women, we have grown and adapted to meet their needs. When we began performing ultrasound in 1999, we were pioneers, one of the very first pregnancy centers in the nation to step out in faith and grab ahold of this new technology and the promise of saved lives that it offered.
In 2006, we began offering STD/HIV testing and STD treatment in partnership with the State of Maryland. We do not dispense or advise for contraction, but rather give medically accurate information and encourage healthy, God-honoring sexuality.
Beginning in 2016 we were the first in the state of Maryland to offer another cutting-edge life-saving technology, Abortion Pill Reversal. This medical procedure is done right in our office, totally for free for our clients, and has only added to the lives that have been saved and changed through this ministry. The end of 2022 saw our 17th baby born strong and healthy after Abortion Pill Reversal.
In 2023 we will again expand services into our Well Woman Reproductive Care, offering cancer screening Pap smears, Breast exams, Self Breast Exam instruction, Nutrition and Fertility Care. We just hired a female Nurse Practioner who will be our primary provider, supplimented by our female Internist.

Accomplishments
- Opened our third office on West Street in Annapolis, directly across from Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic
- Met the needs of women by pioneering medical technology to help save lives such as the ultrasound for abortion minded women, STD testing and treatment, and Abortion Pill Reversal
- Served over 35,000 women and their families in our three clinics since 1982
- Maintained a proven track record of excellence in service to women and their families for over 35 years.
- Paid off the mortgage on the Annapolis office, diverting those funds to our Well Women Reproductive Care and
being Debt Free

Goals
- We strive to increase the number of women served by increasing our Google Advertisement as well as appointments available in each office to serve more clients
- We plan to bring on additional Medical staff to increase our hours for our health services and broaden our educational opportunities in our communities.
