Free Services Available at North Care
- Laboratory quality pregnancy test – If the test result is positive, you may be offered an ultrasound after our evaluation.
- Ultrasound – Our ultrasounds check for…
- Viability: A viable pregnancy is a pregnancy inside the uterus that is not ending naturally. Basically, checking for a viable pregnancy is checking to see if you are having a miscarriage. About 1 in 4 pregnancies end naturally. It is important to know if your pregnancy is viable before you make a pregnancy decision.
- Gestational age: An ultrasound is the most accurate way to date a pregnancy. The gestational age (how far along you are in your pregnancy) is key in determining your due date, and pregnancy options, including the type and cost of an abortion procedure (read more about the different abortion procedures in our health information section)
- An intrauterine pregnancy: It is important to rule out a dangerous ectopic pregnancy.

- STD Testing – An untreated STD can have a negative effect on your health and the health of your pregnancy. Having an STD when you have a surgical abortion can increase your risk of complications for your future reproductive health. North Care Women’s Clinic offers testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea, trichomoniasis and BV.
- Health Assessment – A nurse will review your health history and answer questions you may have about pregnancy, abortion, or STDs.
