Pregnancy Care Center Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need an appointment for a test?

A: If you walk in and we have an available appointment, we will be glad to help you. However, in order to ensure that you don’t have to wait or come back another day the best plan is to call ahead for an appointment. We will get you in as soon as possible. Our number is 417-877-0800.

Q: I need a pregnancy test. Why is it important that I have a missed period?

A: We ask that you be at least 28 to 31 days from the first day of your last menstrual period in order to ensure the accuracy of the reading of the test. Our tests are medical quality and measure the hormone hCG. According to the manufacturer’s instructions, the most accurate reading occurs after the 28th day of your menstrual cycle.

Q: Will my visit be confidential?

A: Yes. We take your privacy very seriously. We will not share any of your information or the fact that you are a client with anyone unless we have permission from you to do so. If you’d like to come in but are concerned about confidentiality (because you might know someone who works here or for any other reason), please call our hotline at 417-877-0800. They will work with you to set up a time when you feel safe to come in. We do share our building with two other businesses. That helps ease some people's concern. All of your information will be held in the strictest confidence, unless disclosure is required by law or is necessary to protect you or others from harm.

Q: Will it cost me anything?

A: The Pregnancy Care services are offered at absolutely no cost. Some of our services are limited to clients who are in need of care. Call 417-877-0800 for more information.

Q: Does every client receive an ultrasound?

A: We do offer limited ultrasound at the center. Ultrasound is scheduled after your first appointment based on a nurse review. Every woman's situation is unique, and the best way to find out more about our ultrasound program is to call the center at 417-877-0800.

Q: Can I get birth control or an abortion from you?

A: PCC does not prescribe birth control or perform / refer for abortions. We do have information on all the different methods of birth control and abortion as well as their effectiveness and risk. Call 417-877-0800 for more information.
