What We Can Do
Hope Clinic can provide you with everything from a pregnancy test to comprehensive options counseling (discussing ALL your options), case management, prenatal education and healthcare, ultrasounds, professional counseling and admission to a material support program called the Bridge Program. Our services are provided by nurses with over 30 years of OBGYN care experience, nurse practitioners, professional counselors and social workers, and are overseen by our medical committee with board-certified OBGYNs and a Psych MD. Pregnancy services are at no cost or on a sliding scale based on income (services are at no cost with a household income of less than $50,000 per year).
What to Expect
Your first pregnancy visit to Hope Clinic for Women will include a visit with a professional medical worker (registered nurse or nurse practitioner overseen by medical doctors), a licensed social worker and a professional counselor.
When you arrive at Hope Clinic, please park in front of the clinic or in the back parking lot. Please enter through the front door, where you will be greeted with a smile by our client services assistant or one of our support specialists. They will assist you in helping with paperwork, answer any questions you may have and show you to the clinic's waiting room.
At your first visit, you will take a free pregnancy test. A consultation regarding your results and options counseling (parenting, adoption, abortion) will be provided by a professionally trained staff member (a licensed social worker or a registered nurse). Hope Clinic does not perform or refer abortions, but we can answer further questions onsite. We encourage every client to decide what is in their best interest, and we empower them to make a healthy, informed decision for themselves. Additionally, clients receive information about Tenncare, WIC, other community resources and an explanation of our counseling and Bridge programs.
Other Kinds of Support You Can Expect
- Professional Counseling with Licensed Counselors: You deserve a safe space with a professional who is trained to support you in the best way possible, and to empower you to live the life you deserve and help you make it through this unexpected, trying time.
