Pregnancy can be an overwhelming time in a woman’s life. Whether you were fearful or excited about your positive pregnancy test result, Community Pregnancy Clinics will support you during this new chapter of your life. With 5 brick-and-mortar clinics and 2 mobile medical clinics located throughout the state of Florida, Community Pregnancy Clinics provides free and confidential services including pregnancy testing, STI testing, ultrasounds, and more. Along with thousands of other pregnancy resource centers throughout the country, our clinics exist to serve women and connect them with the proper resources.
According to a study performed by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, there are nearly 3,000 pregnancy resource centers in the United States. In 2019, pregnancy centers served approximately 1.85 million people throughout the country for an estimated total value of services at over $266 million. While Community Pregnancy Clinics is the largest network of pregnancy centers in the state of Florida, we provide more than medical services. If you are wondering “Am I pregnant?” our nurses and counselors will provide you with the care, compassion, and choices you need to make good decisions regarding your sexual health and pregnancy.
Our counselors go above and beyond to support women no matter their circumstance. Whether you need emotional, material, physical, spiritual, or financial support, our caring staff will connect you with organizations that can help. Each of our clinics has partnerships with local and governmental organizations which can meet your current needs and assist you. While Planned Parenthood claims pregnancy resource centers are fake clinics, we at Community Pregnancy Clinics provide medically accurate information and tangible resources to support you during and after your pregnancy.
