When you call us to schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test we will ask you for your first and last name, your phone number, and the last date of your menstrual period. We will also ask you to bring a picture ID and whether or not you'd like a courtesy call to remind you of your appointment the day prior. When you come in you'll be greeted by one of our lovely volunteer receptionist and asked for your ID (don't worry, we'll just make a copy of it for our records and bring it right back!). She will then hand you a clipboard with 3 sheets of forms for you to fill out, which begins our intake process. After you're done with those a client advocate will escort you back to our peer-counseling room where she will complete our intake process by explaining the remainder of the intake forms to you. When the nurse is ready, she will take you into our medical room to complete your pregnancy test--and just like that, you'll be done!
