Q: Why should I come to the Care Clinic?

A: First of all, a Care Clinic counselor (advocate)can provide a test to confirm whether you are pregnant. If you are pregnant, your advocate will explain all of your options to you. The choice you make about your pregnancy will affect your body, your relationships, your emotional well-being and your future. So you owe it to yourself to get all the information you can.

Q: What will happen when I come to the Care Clinic of Marquette?

A: First, you will be introduced to an advocate. She will provide you with a free pregnancy test, and will have your test results quickly. If you are pregnant,and you are seven weeks into your pregnancy from conception, ultrasound is available to you by a licensed medical professional. Your advocate will discuss your options with you and answer any question or concerns you may have. If you are not pregnant, she will still be happy to answer any questions you have about pregnancy, unprotected sex and other personal matters. Your test results and anything you discuss with the counselor will be kept strictly confidential.

Q: I'm not married. If I'm pregnant, what will the advocate say?

A: Your Care Clinic Services advocate will not judge you or try to make you feel guilty, and she will not pressure you into making a decision about your pregnancy. Women who come to our centers often comment on how relieved they felt to find someone who cared about them and could answer their questions.
