The Pregnancy Center began in March of 1986 and since that time our staff and volunteers have served over 5000 clients within the Gateway area. Women, children and families have been helped because of our free and confidential services made possible through the generous donations of individuals, churches and businesses that believe that every life matters. The Center is located in the Bluff Professional Building at Bluff Blvd. in the heart of Clinton, Iowa.
We provide free pregnancy tests and limited obstetrical ultrasounds to those who have a positive test result. We also offer options counseling and educational materials on sexual health, alternatives to abortion, healthy pregnancy education, parenting classes, post-abortion grief support programs and abstinence education for churches and schools. In addition, we offer community programs Medical, adoption and social services referrals are offered as needed.
Our Smart Women Program offers daily educational classes which earn the client “boutique bucks” to shop in our on-site Boutique filled with diapers, formula, food, clothing and personal items for the mother.
The Pregnancy Center is affiliated with Heartbeat International (Association for Pregnancy Resource Providers), NIFLA (National Institute of Family and Life Advocates), and CareNet (Association for Pregnancy Resource Providers). They provide us with valuable information that equips us to serve and meet the needs of our organization.
The Pregnancy Center does not offer or refer for abortions services.
