The goal of our Family Planning Services is to promote reproductive health planning for men and women. We provide education, STI screenings, birth control methods and folic acid to ensure that your baby is planned and healthy. We also have family planning services for teen-agers in a teen friendly atmosphere. Our Teen Experience provides reproductive health services along with other health services in a clinical setting that’s just for teens – both males and females. Teen Experience accepts walk-ins and appointments.
Our Prenatal or Maternity Services promote healthy pregnancy outcomes by providing quality prenatal care and education to our clients. Each client is assigned to an RN who serves as a resource to them throughout their pregnancy. We offer pregnancy testing regardless of residence. However, our Prenatal Services are limited to City of Richmond residents only. Centering Pregnancy is a new group care option that has proven through research studies to be effective in healthy pregnancy outcomes (fewer premature births and complications of pregnancy). Our Centering Program has a new group starting each month. We promote breastfeeding and provide education on a broad range of topics to include injury prevention, SIDS, safe sleep for baby, prenatal vitamins with folic acid (vitamin B9), premature labor, and more.
We encourage women to seek prenatal care early in their pregnancy during the first 3 months. We provide appointments to women without insurance and assist them to enroll in Medicaid, if eligible.
