How can I get diapers?

Pregnancy Care Center continues to be in close contact with Crosslines and Diaper Bank of the Ozarks to help supply diapers when possible.

We wanted to let our clients know that Crosslines is still distributing food and diapers but clients must either complete the request form or call 417-869-0563.

Orders must be placed ahead of time for a scheduled pickup or guests can wait in the parking lot and will receive a call when the order is ready to be picked up at the drive-thru. Distribution hours are from 9 am to 1:45 pm.

What Are Pregnancy Care Center’s COVID-19 Policies?

Pregnancy Care Center will continue to serve our clients during Coronavirus restrictions. We have adjusted our policies and put in place additional precautions.

Please text or call 417-877-0800 with questions.

For additional information, please refer to the CDC or the Greene County Health Department.

If considering an abortion, is it necessary to have an ultrasound?

Having an ultrasound before a medical or surgical abortion is crucial because it will confirm that the pregnancy is in the uterus and confirm there is a heartbeat. Once a positive test result is verified and you are six weeks from the last menstrual period (LMP), we can proceed with performing an ultrasound. 

If the pregnancy is not viable or ectopic (outside of the uterus)  it will require immediate medical attention. At this time there is no point in further decision-making.

According to the March of Dimes, approximately 15 – 25% of recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. More than 80% of miscarriages will occur within the first three months.

If you are considering abortion, we offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds and are happy to help better explain your options.

When is it too late to get an abortion?

In the United States, the legality of abortion varies by state. In Missouri, abortions can only be performed in the case of a medical emergency, pursuant to the state’s trigger law that went into effect in June 2022 following the Supreme Court’s ruling.

The most critical information you need to find out is how medically viable your pregnancy is, regardless of how far along it is. 

At Pregnancy Care Center (PCC), your pregnancy will be verified first by a pregnancy test. Regardless of which options you are considering, an ultrasound can be performed in order to better determine the gestational health. Once you have verified information about your pregnancy, you will be better prepared to make decisions.

Pregnancy Care Center cares about the whole client and has a variety of services available to all clients.  Our services start with a pregnancy test and continue with ultrasound, coaching, classes, and a safe, supportive environment. Abortion, adoption, and parenting are all choices you have when you discover you are pregnant.  The Pregnancy Care Center has educational information about all three choices.

Should I consider taking an abortion pill?

Your physician and Pregnancy Care Center nurses can give you information about the pill and explain any medical side effects reported by the manufacturer.  Although the Pregnancy Care Center does not supply nor have access to the abortion pill, PCC is still a community resource for information in helping you make the best decision.

Before choosing to take the abortion pill it is important to gather as much information as possible. 

At Pregnancy Care Center, you can schedule a pregnancy test, receive an ultrasound and discuss all choices you are considering, including the abortion pill, with a nurse in a professional, confidential setting. If you decide that you want to take the abortion pill, you will need to schedule an appointment with a medical doctor to get more information.

How soon can you take a pregnancy test?

The type of test you are using needs to be your first consideration.  Two most common types of test are urine and blood tests. Some urine tests on the market claim that you can take their test before you have even missed a period.  Women who track their monthly cycles have a pretty good idea of when their period should start.  If you track your monthly period an early detection test taken a few days before you should start your period could provide you with a fairly accurate result.

Most of the tests on the market are designed to be used once you have missed your period or are at least a few days late. 

The tests use HCG levels in your urine to detect pregnancy. This is why waiting a few days after a missed period before taking the test gives you the best opportunity for a true positive, as HCG will be present in your urine if you are pregnant. If you engaged in sexual intercourse around the time you should have been ovulating, you will need to wait at least 10 to 14 days after having sex before taking a urine pregnancy test.  Even if you receive a negative test on day 14 but have still not started your period, you may want to take another test a few days later.  If you still receive a negative test result but have not started your period, you may want to consider a blood test.

For women who experience irregular periods, tracking your cycle can be much more difficult.  Since a woman who has irregular periods cannot easily track ovulation, you may need to rely on other common early pregnancy symptoms including but not limited to: nausea, breast tenderness, frequent urination and fatigue. If you experience any or all of these within two to three weeks after having sex, you may want to take a home pregnancy test.  If your tests results are negative but you continue to experience other symptoms, you may need to test again or have a blood test. A blood test provides the most accurate result.


Springfield Pregnancy Care Center provides free confidential pregnancy tests for all clients.  Since Pregnancy Care Center uses urine tests for verification, you will need to wait a few days after missing your period before coming in to take a pregnancy test.  Once your test is verified, a due date will be determined based on the date of your last menstrual period (LMP).

What is the best pregnancy test?

A blood test can be taken within 8-12 days after sex.  Although more expensive and harder to obtain (available only through a physician), a blood test is more effective than a urine test. 

Although blood tests are considered the best, urine tests are highly accurate when used correctly.

Springfield Pregnancy Care Center provides free, confidential pregnancy tests for all clients.  Since Pregnancy Care Center uses urine tests for verification, you will need to wait a few days after missing your period before coming in to take a pregnancy test.  Once your test is verified a due date can be determined based on the date of your last menstrual period (LMP).
