Facing an unplanned or difficult pregnancy can feel overwhelming. Aid for Women understands that every women’s situation is different and can help. We provide a confidential and comfortable place to discuss your situation with our staff. You will receive the information and services you need to understand your options and make a fully-informed decision. All services are offered FREE OF CHARGE.
The first step is to confirm whether or not you are pregnant. Or perhaps you have taken a home pregnancy test and are unsure of the results. We offer in-office pregnancy tests to give you immediate and accurate results during your visit.
Aid for Women offers on-site ultrasound exams to determine how far along you are in your pregnancy and to verify the viability of pregnancy.
When facing an unplanned pregnancy, it is important to understand all of your options. Our compassionate staff will discuss your individual situation, provide you with accurate information about your options and support you throughout your pregnancy decision.
Aid for Women clients are invited to join our programs to receive ongoing support during their pregnancy decision and beyond. Programs offered include the Earn While You Learn Mentoring Program, Moms-To-Be Support Group and Parenting Support Group.
Aid for Women operates a residential program in Des Plaines, Illinois, for expectant moms, new moms and their children. Your counselor will help you assess your current living situation and possible options that are available to you during and after your pregnancy.
MEDICAL AND COMMUNITY REFERRALS
Women come to us with many different material, physical and emotional needs — including healthcare, housing, nutrition, employment and help with emotional or relationship issues. Aid for Women has established partnerships with a network of medical and community agencies throughout the Chicago area which allow us to better address and serve the needs of our clients and their families.
