The Columbia Pregnancy Center has been saving lives since 1981 when we first opened our doors as the Howard County Pregnancy Center. We are the only pregnancy resource center in Howard County offering support to women and families facing unplanned pregnancies. We are a community-based center, funded entirely by your donations, and we make our services and resources available for free to anyone who may need them. We offer many services designed to help women and families before, during, and after the birth of their babies, as well as to women hurting from experiences that they have suffered in the past.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Knights of Columbus for our ultrasound machine and thanks to our continuing donations to fund our part time Nurse Sonographer, we are able to offer free obstetric ultrasounds to confirm pregnancy. Mothers-to-be are often deeply moved by the incredible images they see of the new life they are carrying within them and this can inspire them to choose life for their babies. We also offer free pregnancy tests, prenatal and parenting classes, prenatal vitamins, a Baby Boutique featuring layettes and baby clothes, community referrals, and other material aid. And we offer a wide range of information on alternatives to abortion.
