We are still here!
We have adjusted how we operate so that we can still provide ALL of our usual services while keeping you safe during COVID-19.
Check out our COVID-19 page to see how the below services look a little different and are available to you at this time.
Taking a pregnancy test can feel overwhelming, especially when the pregnancy is unplanned. You might have concerns about privacy or what the next steps should be if you are pregnant. We provide a free self-administered, urine-based pregnancy test in a confidential supportive environment. You don’t have to face this situation alone. Contact us for an appointment.
If you are facing a challenging pregnancy situation, you might be aware of your options (abortion, adoption, and parenting), but you might not be able to picture how each option might look in your own life. Sometimes it helps to talk.
At Envisage Pregnancy Services we listen to you. Envisage provides a safe place to talk about your situation and your feelings, without being judged or told what to do. If you have questions, Envisage will help you find the information you need.
Contact us to make an appointment.
PLEASE NOTE: Envisage Pregnancy Services is not a medical facility. We do not perform or make arrangements for abortions nor do we provide any medical services. Our services are not intended as a substitute for professional counselling or therapy.
Taking a pregnancy test is just the beginning of a journey. Deciding which course of action to take can be a difficult process for many people. It is helpful to have a supportive and confidential place to talk about your feelings and your unique situation. We provide ongoing emotional support to you as you take the time to consider your options. We are also happy to talk with and listen to the significant people in your life who may be helping you as you face this decision.
We continue to provide support, with whichever option you chose. If you chose to parent, our team provides childbirth education classes and support with infant feeding and care, post-partum recovery and emotional support throughout the journey. Parenting isn’t always easy, but with positive support you can thrive! If you place your child for adoption, Envisage provides support to prepare for birth, for the adoption process and support to process the feelings you may face after placing your baby for adoption. We also provide support if you are struggling with difficult emotions after an abortion. You are not alone. You can contact us to make an appointment.

Emotional Support After Abortion
Some women feel relief after an abortion, while others may experience difficult emotions. If you are struggling with your emotions because of an abortion, there is hope. We provide a safe place for you to process emotions connected to abortion losses. Whether you had an abortion last week or thirty years ago, if you need support, we are here for you. You can contact us to make an appointment.
Envisage clients who are receiving our support services can also access our clothing cupboard for gently used maternity and baby clothing and other helpful items. We have infant clothing size newborn to 12 months available to our clients.
Childbirth Education Classes
Clients who are accessing support at Envisage can participate in our childbirth education classes. These 8-week classes are taught by certified instructors, and are generally provided after 20 weeks pregnancy, to help you prepare for birth, baby care and postpartum recovery. Modified classes are also available to respond to the needs of anyone considering placing their baby for adoption. After your baby is born, our team will continue to provide emotional support and practical help to give you the best start possible in this new stage of your journey!
