Pregnancy Alternatives Center Offers Medical Care and Resources

Pregnancy Alternatives Center in Lebanon provides support, resources and medical care to women, including teens, who are pregnant and in need of a safe, supportive environment. Their services include pregnancy testing, patient advocacy, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, limited ultrasound exams and consultations with a health care provider.

Pregnancy Alternatives Center also goes beyond just providing medical care. A grant from Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital helps support the Healthy Moms Safe Babies program, which provides medical supplies for their clinic and parenting classes through their resource center. Patients learn parenting skills, nutrition, finances and more. By participating in the classes, participants have the opportunity to earn essential items, including diapers, clothes, car seats and even a crib.

“We provide a service that doesn’t exist elsewhere in our community,” said Executive Director Debbie Tracy. “We combine health care and social services in the same visit. We have a more holistic approach to empower women and help them change their lives.”
