Your First Visit

Your First Visit

What should I expect when I arrive for my first appointment?

 “When you walk through our doors you will be welcomed by one of our staff members. She will walk you through the paperwork and get you settled. While you wait for your appointment, you can relax in our newly renovated waiting room.”

COVID-19 procedure

When you arrive, we will ask you a few questions to screen for COVID. We have masks available upon request.

Intake paperwork

We can text you the intake paperwork so you can complete it online before your appointment, or you can complete the forms at the center on an iPad once you arrive.

Photo ID

We ask that you bring a photo ID. We will make a copy to keep with your paperwork. Call our office if you have any questions regarding this.

Services provided during your first visit include:

Medical

A nurse and client advocate will be in the room during your appointment. A professional medical-grade quality pregnancy test will be administered by our licensed medical professional. If your pregnancy is verified, you are at least six weeks along, and the schedule permits, you may be able to have a limited ultrasound at this appointment. You can also schedule a limited ultrasound for another day. Drink plenty of fluids before your appointment to allow for optimum results and ultrasound images.

Education

If you haven’t made a final decision, want to learn more before deciding, or just want to discuss what you want to do with your pregnancy, a client advocate can discuss information about your pregnancy options– parenting, adoption or abortion. The client advocate can also show you a decision-making tool you can use to make a thoughtful, intentional decision on your own, with your partner, or with other support people in your life.

Information

Depending on your situation, pregnancy decision, and individual needs, the nurse and client advocate can provide information about other programs and resources offered by our center and/or the community.

Additional Questions You Might Have?

Some pregnancy symptoms may include a missed period, swollen/tender breasts, nausea/morning sickness, fatigue/tiredness, backaches, headache, frequent urination, darkening of nipples, food cravings, slight bleeding.

All of our services are free.

The services provided to you by our center are made possibly by individuals, businesses, and local churches who care about you and what you are going through.  We are a faith-based organization & hope to empower you to confidently choose life for your baby, but we also recognize & respect that it’s your choice.  We offer non-judgmental ongoing support for you for all three different options for your pregnancy. 

You need to bring a photo ID. Having a full bladder is recommended if receiving a pregnancy test or limited ultrasound.

Walk-ins are welcome. However, making an appointment minimizes your office wait. Please text 785-813-1732 or call 785-842-6499.

Our tests are professional medical-grade quality, urine pregnancy tests administered by our licensed medical professionals. If the test is positive, we can provide a confirmation of pregnancy.

Please allow anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes for your appointment. Our administrative assistant can give you a better idea of how much time your appointment will take depending on the services you request when scheduling.

After completing the paperwork, you will meet with our professionals to go over your information, and a pregnancy test will be administered. We will plan or schedule an ultrasound with a positive pregnancy test result to confirm a viable uterine pregnancy.

You can bring your partner, a family member, or friend. First, we will talk with you privately. Then if you give us consent to have your support person in the room, your guest will be able to join you for certain portions of your appointment—including the ultrasound. However, due to our strict confidentiality policy, there will be times we need to speak to you privately. Also, we encourage you to make other arrangements for your children but understand sometimes that may not be possible. Children are welcome to stay with a responsible person in our waiting area.

Our medical services do not  include testing for STD/STI’s.  Our caring medical staff can educate you on the different types of STD/STI’s and how they can affect your pregnancy. Then provide a referral to a local medical facility that can provide testing for you. 

We are committed to support women throughout their pregnancy decision  journey. We are prepared to provide after-abortion support to women who feel they can benefit from this service.
In Kansas, the law requires anyone under the age of 18 to obtain consent from both parents to get an abortion. If your parents are separated or divorced, only the parent with custody needs to consent to the abortion. Scheduling an appointment with IWC does not require parental consent.  As we talk through your pregnancy options, we will discuss ways you can tell your parents about your pregnancy and how to include them in your decision-making process.

We adhere to a strict privacy and confidentiality policy. Clients are protected from disclosure of information that violates their right to privacy except where required by law, required for public health reasons, required to avert a threat of harm to the client or a third person, or when other circumstances may reasonably warrant such use or disclosure without prior authorization (e.g., abuse reporting, suicide/homicide prevention, etc.)
