Frequently Asked Questions
An appointment is encouraged, but not required. CPC accepts same day and walk in appointments for pregnancy testing as the day’s schedule allows. For those wanting a same day and/or walk in appointment, please call 907-337-9292 to ensure space is available.
Once an appointment has been scheduled, intake paperwork will be sent electronically for your completion prior to your appointment. For a pregnancy test appointment, we recommend that you arrive at least an hour before closing. Ultrasounds are done by appointment only, after we determine your eligibility.
In order to provide the best possible care, we ask that you allow about an hour for your appointment, or an hour and a half for a walk-in. If you are coming on a lunch break, or need to make special arrangements, we ask that you call the center first and let us know at 337-9292.
Yes. Whether it’s a friend, family member, or the father-of-the-baby, we encourage you to bring someone with you for moral support. For the sake of your privacy, we will meet with you individually at first and then invite your friend back when you’re comfortable.
The conversation is guided by you. A woman will talk with you about your circumstances and what you are planning. You can tell as much or little as you feel comfortable with and ask any questions you have. She will ask you if you want more information on any topics. If you are uncomfortable answering any question, simple say so, and the topic will be changed. There is no judgment or pressure. We are here to help you. Each appointment will last about an hour. If you are in a hurry, let us know, and we will try to meet your timeline if possible.
If you are undecided about your pregnancy options, feel free to review the information on our site and then make an appointment to have your questions answered.
We do not provide or refer for abortions. We will discuss abortion information to help you make an informed decision and will discuss all your options without judgment or pressure. We can also offer you a free limited obstetrical ultrasound to check if your pregnancy is viable and measure how far along you are which are important pieces of information to help you make the best decision.
Prior to scheduling an ultrasound exam we ask you to schedule a pregnancy test. If your pregnancy test is positive, we will work with you to schedule an ultrasound with you at that time.
We ask that you arrive for your appointment with a full bladder. The best way to do this is to empty your bladder one hour before the appointment, and then drink 3 glasses of water and refrain from using the bathroom until the nurse tells you to. We encourage you to bring the father of the baby to observe the ultrasound, if that is possible. We do not allow photos or recording of the ultrasound, but we will provide you with ultrasound photos.
All our services are free! This includes pregnancy tests, ultrasound, STD testing, and parenting classes with material support.
