How COVID-19 Affects Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women
Limited Ultrasounds Provided
Free ultrasounds are performed by trained registered nurses to confirm pregnancy.
Free Pregnancy Tests
We provide clients free, lab quality pregnancy tests that are 99 percent accurate.
Due to COVID 19, we ask that anyone with active symptoms such as a cough, fever or respiratory issues within the past 72 hours, call (816) 520-7828 to reschedule your appointment. We also ask that you only bring one visitor with you at the time of your visit. Our goal is to serve you safely because we care and appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

I think I’m Pregnant…
What should I do?
An unplanned pregnancy doesn’t define the rest of your life. Contact us to discuss next steps. Bridge of Hope client advocates listen and provide guidance without judgement. We believe in advocating for the entire family. Get in touch and let’s talk. Contact us, today.
How do I know if I am pregnant?
If you are sexually active, there is a chance you may be pregnant. Here are some common indicators of pregnancy: missed period, slight bleeding, nausea or morning sickness, frequent urination, headaches, food cravings, backaches and fatigue.
What if I tested positive at home?
We provide free, lab-quality tests that may be more accurate than the home test you’ve already taken. Testing positive at our facility qualifies you for a free limited ultrasound, which determines the viability and status of your pregnancy.
How do I find support for my partner?
We offer support for men, too. When tests show a child is on the way, we present the parents with “positive” bags. Handouts in the young man’s bag encourage him to stay involved and committed. We work hard to develop resources for the father.
I know I am pregnant. What are my next steps?
If you think you might be pregnant and have no idea what to do next, make an appointment at Bridge of Hope. We are here to help you explore all your options. We provide unbiased support. It’s important for you to know that we are here to help.
How do I support my new family?
We offer support after a pregnancy is confirmed. We want to stay engaged in our clients’ lives. That’s why we designed The Bridge’s Mom Group. At the end of each class, attendees are invited to go shopping in the Bridge Store and pick out freebies.
