The LPC (Laurel Pregnancy Center)

Frequently Asked Questions

LPC Services

High Quality. Confidential. Absolutely Free.

Pregnancy Confirmation

The LPC provides physical, spiritual, and emotional care as you determine what to do. Our services are offered free of charge to you in a confidential, non-judgmental, and caring environment. We provide peer-to-peer counseling with a Care Coach, a pregnancy test, and nurse consult during your first office visit. 

Care Coach Support

 You can speak privately to a Care Coach about your needs and concerns over the phone prior to an on-site visit if you wish. Our goal is to listen to you and to offer you life-giving support.

After-Abortion Care

Nearly everyone agrees that the choice to end a pregnancy is an enormously difficult one to make, yet few community resources exist to address the emotional turmoil women and men may experience afterward. Our post-abortion recovery program provides a confidential way for women and men to work through their feelings and find healing, individually or as part of a small group. 

Parenting Class

This series of classes is designed to educate and support expecting and new parents. Qualified community professionals provide instruction in a safe, comfortable group setting where parents are encouraged to learn, share, and ask questions. The three stage format is designed to walk a couple through their pregnancy and beyond.

Material Assistance

We also recognize that life is messy and sometimes you find yourself in a place where you just need help. If you are a parent who already has a baby, and/or small child and you are in need
of material assistance, we are here for you too. We are able to offer you some diapers and
wipes to assist with your urgent need. We can also get you connected to some other resources
who can assist with other material needs, such as clothing items, formula, cribs, strollers, etc.

Our Services

How much are your services?

They’re free! All of our support services are offered free of charge because of the generous financial contributions and donations of our partners. (If you wish to learn more about donating to the LPC, please visit our Donate page.)

I am undecided what to do if I am pregnant. Will I get information on all of my options?
Absolutely. We are committed to giving women full disclosure information on abortion, adoption, and parenting. Every woman’s situation is unique, and she deserves to know all the facts so she can make an informed decision. We do not believe in withholding information from women in the decision-making process.
How old must I be to receive your services?
There are no requirements of any kind. All clients are served without regard to age, race, income, nationality, religious affiliation, disability or other arbitrary circumstances.
Can I get an abortion at your facility?

We do not recommend, refer or provide for abortions. We offer pregnancy tests and a sonogram to confirm a pregnancy. If you choose an abortion, we can provide you with post-abortion grief and recovery support.

Do you serve men?

Yes. We understand a pregnancy impacts both a woman and a man. We are here to listen and help both. We provide our peer counseling for men too. You can speak with a Care Coach in private, or if you wish, we can talk together with you and your partner.

Do I need to schedule an appointment?

To provide you with excellent care we encourage you to schedule an appointment. We accept walk-ins if there is an availability in the daily schedule. We have a variety of morning, afternoon and evening appointments. Please give us a call at 301-776-9996 for an appointment.
