Who are We?
Carolina Pregnancy Center is a non-profit organization that is committed to providing compassion, information, and support to anyone facing the challenge of an unplanned pregnancy. We offer all of our services free of charge.
Our focus is on you, not on making money. At Carolina Pregnancy Center, you’ll find a caring staff and volunteer client advocates that are committed to providing you a safe, comfortable place where you can find the help you need! Because many of us have faced some of the same decisions you are facing, we can identify with your needs and offer real-world guidance with genuine compassion.
Our Services are...
There is never a charge for any of our services. We are able to offer these services to our clients because of the generous gifts of individuals, churches, businesses and organizations that partner with us. We are funded entirely through private donations and do not receive any government funding.
There are many people in Spartanburg and the Upstate who give their finances, time and talents to Carolina Pregnancy Center because they care about our clients and the issues they are facing. They believe that if our clients are given accurate information and the support they deserve, they will make really good decisions. We know this is true because we have had clients return as both donors and volunteers, so they can help others receive the same life changing help and hope they received.
It is so important that you get accurate information and be able to talk to someone you can trust. We take your confidentiality very seriously, and we strive to create a safe environment where you can trust that your information is kept in the strictest confidence except as required by law or as required for the protection of yourself or others.
Our staff and volunteers are here to listen to you and answer any questions you may have. It is our goal to provide you with accurate information in a safe and compassionate environment. You will receive dignity, respect, grace-filled truth and encouragement.
We want everyone who walks through our doors to be empowered to make informed decisions. We are here to walk alongside you each step of the way. Because we do not perform or refer for abortion or profit from any choice you make, there is no pressure. We inform, YOU decide.
Our Services include...
If you think you may be pregnant, we encourage you to call and make an appointment. Carolina Pregnancy Center offers free and confidential, lab quality pregnancy tests like those used in a doctor’s office or hospital. Home pregnancy tests are usually very accurate, but not always. Your health, as well as your baby’s health, is very important. If your test is positive, we will explain your options and provide you with a proof of pregnancy form needed to file for Medicaid. To protect your confidentiality, you’ll need to bring your valid photo ID. A driver’s license or student ID will work. These are the first important steps you’ll need to begin considering your options for your best possible future.
If you are pregnant or have small children, we understand that you may be feeling a financial strain trying to provide the items you need for your baby. We have the Earn While You Learn program to enable you to earn the items you need for your baby while learning the parenting skills you desire. Because we also understand that sometimes circumstances are out of your control, we offer assistance with emergency formula and diapers one time per child. We also offer maternity clothes and baby clothes for newborn-4T sizes in our loan closet. Our client advocates would be happy to help you with the items you need for your pregnancy and your baby. Please call today to schedule a physical needs appointment.
Carolina Pregnancy Center provides ultrasounds on a limited basis to clients that qualify. If you already know you’re pregnant and are under a doctor’s care, then we can offer you many other supportive services, but no further medical care. We do not perform ultrasounds for the purpose of discovering the sex of the baby.
Our trained staff and volunteer mentors will listen to your concerns and answer your questions. They will walk with you through this season of life and provide you with compassionate acceptance, dignity and respect, grace-filled truthfulness and hopeful encouragement. You are not alone. If you need someone to talk to as you are weighing your options please call our center for an appointment today. If you would like a mentor to help you through the parenting process, call to enroll in Earn While You Learn today.
Carolina Pregnancy Center offers two different parent education tracks. The first is Earn While You Learn, which is open to any client that is either pregnant or parenting a baby or toddler. The second is our Court Ordered Parenting Program, which is open to clients that have been court ordered or referred by DSS to complete parenting classes. Please call our center today to enroll in the parenting program that best fits your needs.
If you do not currently have an OB/GYN, we can offer you referrals to area doctors that are accepting new patients. Please call our center for more information.
Carolina Pregnancy Center partners with many community agencies and organizations to help meet the needs of our clients. If you need information about maternity homes, domestic violence shelters, rape crisis counseling, adoption services, housing, employment and GED assistance, or other resources for you or your child, please call our center for more information.
Carolina Pregnancy Center provides support to women and men who have experienced abortion at some time in their lives. Our Post-Abortion care is completely confidential. We have both male and female client advocates trained to assist in abortion recovery. Please call our center to talk to our staff and learn more about abortion recovery for you or someone you love.
