Pregnancy Tests
Pregnancy TestTaking 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 pregnancy test in a confidential supportive environment. You don’t have to face this situation alone. Contact us now for an appointment.
Options Information & Exploration

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 refer for abortions nor do we provide any medical services. Our services are not intended as a substitute for professional counselling or therapy.

Ongoing Support
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, our centre 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.

Information about Community Resources
There are many community resources that can provide you with support. Knowing where to get help can make a real difference. We help you get connected with agencies that provide medical, financial, educational, and social support. Contact us for an appointment.
Adoption Information & Support
If you are not in a position to raise a child right now, you might consider adoption. Envisage can provide you with support and information as you explore the option of adoption. If you decide that adoption is the best choice for you and your baby, we will provide you with support throughout the process and after your baby is placed for adoption. Contact us for an appointment.
Emotional Support After Abortion
Some women feel relief after an abortion, while other women experience strong negative emotions. Some of these reactions may be immediate. Some occur many years after the abortion. 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.

Childbirth Education Classes
Many women have questions about birth and how to take care of their baby. Our classes can help answer your questions! Classes are provided after 20 weeks pregnancy to help you prepare for your childbirth and the early stages after your baby is delivered. These classes are provided in small groups or individually to give you personalized support. The centre also provides “doula” support during childbirth for women who do not have a support person. Doula support is provided on a limited basis, based on centre capacity and client need – feel free to ask us about this service! After your baby is born, our centre doulas are available to provide information and support with baby feeding and care issues, and with your postpartum recovery. Our team will continue to provide emotional support and practical help to give you the best start possible to your parenting journey! We are here to help. Contact us for an appointment.
