Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, Pregnancy Choices Clinic has a registered nurse in office for pregnancy verifications. If you are planning to carry your baby to term but do not have insurance we can help. When you come in to take your pregnancy test, the nurse will read the results and fill out a pregnancy verification form so you can apply for Medi-Cal. You can even make your Medi-Cal appointment through us so all of your needs can be met through one place. We have several wonderful doctors we can refer you to for all of your prenatal needs.

Pregnancy Choices Clinic provides pre-natal vitamins to expectant mothers when they come in for verification. These vitamins can be quite expensive at your regular grocery store but you can get them for free through us.
