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?

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 pregnancy verification. 

In Kansas, the law requires anyone under 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 to tell your parents about your pregnancy and how to include them in your decision-making process.

We adhere to strict privacy and confidentiality policies. 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.)
