You are important to us and we are honored that you chose us to help you through this difficult time. You are even more important to God and we want you to know that.
We realize that an unplanned pregnancy, no matter how old you are, can be frightening. Decisions aren’t always easy. We want to make sure you are well informed about all your options, so that you can make an educated decision. You can also receive material support, as well as emotional and spiritual encouragement.
If you‘re a first time mom, we have a prenatal program that will explain the changes you are experiencing throughout your pregnancy. If you are looking for information about abortion procedures, we will give you all the educational materials available. *We do NOT refer clients to abortion doctors or clinics*. If you are someone who has chosen an abortion and is presently facing the aftermath, we are here to help. If you are a dad and have no clue about parenting, we will help you, too, by offering our parenting or guide to fatherhood programs.
Our services are FREE and confidential. Our primary focus is YOU!! We do offer support to the significant people in your life, but we always have your best interests at heart. We will offer different perspectives, challenge your understanding, and encourage you to look pass the crisis and to see what God can do.
We will not tell you what to do or make any decision for you; we will walk alongside of you, holding your hand (if you want us to). We will share our experience, strength, hope, knowledge and education-without judgment or condemnation. We will laugh, cry, and even pray with you.
So thank you for visiting us at ELM- where Every Life Matters (especially YOURS!!).
Free test done by trained staff. These pregnancy tests are only a preliminary to an actual limited obstetric ultrasound. It's possible to get a negative result from a ‘home’ pregnancy test when you're actually pregnant. This is known as a false-negative — and it's much more likely to occur than is a false-positive.
You might get a false-negative if you:
- Take the test too early. The earlier after a missed period that you take a home pregnancy test, the harder it is for the test to detect HCG. For the most accurate results, take the test one week after a missed period — when the
level of HCG in your urine is most likely to be detectable. If you can't wait that long, ask your health care provider for a blood test.
- Check test results too soon. Be sure to give the test time to work. Consider setting a timer according to the package instructions.
- Use diluted urine. For the most accurate results, take the test first thing in the morning — when your urine is the most concentrated.Learn More
Post Abortion Recovery
Group or individual support for those who are affected by abortion. Some of us have been right where you are. We thought it was the only option- we believed the lie. Well, it is time for us to let go and let God free us from the bondage of shame, guilt, remorse and regret. It’s time for us to be Forgiven and Set Free.
