FREE Pregnancy Testing
Birth Choice of the Desert provides a free pregnancy test that is simple and effective.
Pregnancy tests measure a hormone called HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG is present in as little 10 days after ovulation. The test given by Birth Choice of the Desert gives you immediate results using a urine sample during the time of your appointment. The procedure is safe and confidential.
Please Note: Birth Choice of the Desert is a pregnancy resource center and should not be considered a substitution for your doctor’s care and information.
FREE Ultrasound Referral
If your pregnancy test is positive, Birth Choice of the Desert can refer you to a nearby provider who will perform a free ultrasound test.
A prenatal ultrasound test uses high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, that are transmitted through the abdomen via a device called a transducer to look at the inside of the abdomen. This ultrasound process is a valuable tool in knowing more about your pregnancy.
If your pregnancy test is positive, the staff at Birth Choice of the Desert will discuss the next steps with you. They can share pregnancy information and discuss some precautions you should take. You can also ask questions about your pregnancy and learn more about different options.
The Birth Choice of the Desert team is here to help you in every step of your pregnancy journey. There are three options to consider when you are pregnant, and the caring Birth Choice staff will walk you through each of them to help you with your decision.
