Pregnancy Resource Centers in Grand Prairie

Pregnancy Resource Centers, also sometimes called “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” are often not-for-profit clinics where you can go to get help confirming if you are pregnant, and if you would like to, they will discuss “pregnancy options”. Most of these centers are staffed by volunteers who are not necessarily trained medical personnel, so can’t prescribe contraceptives. Because many Pregnancy Resource Centers are associated with pro-life organizations, they will encourage parenting or adoption, however not all of them are faith based.
