Lisa the peer counselor is awesome, she called me every so often until my son was born and was always an encouraging blessing..... I am looking into volunteering and training now because I want to be there to help and encourage others as she did with me. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AT CAPS!!! MM

I was a model for the nurses to get their re-certification. They were super friendly when I came in and didn't mind at all that I had my two other children there with me. I was a little disappointed that they could not give me a definite answer as to the gender of the baby, but they were able to get some good pictures of the "area" so I could make my own guess.

Overall, it was a nice experience and I would definitely recommend people to this place.

The staff at CAPS is very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Not only do they offer some of the latest in ultrasound technology but also a comfortable atmosphere in which to experience the momentous occasion of seeing your little one growing inside for the first time. I highly recommend this center if you are looking for genuine care and direction in the planning or preparation of having a child.

CAPS is a wonderful resource for women. The staff is amazing and so informative and helpful. I got an ultrasound with our second child at CAPS and really felt so at ease. It's such a great place for women!

My experience at CAPS was nothing short of amazing. When you look at that pregnancy strip and see pregnant -- and you are single and it was not in YOUR plan, you can easily freak out. CAPS is a wonderful warm place to go and just talk if you want to - like FREE counseling, it is so great! I remember the first time I went to talk and I just sat and vented and talked for an hour, crying and discussing my feelings. They have so many educational tools so you can explore different options for you and your baby. I did not feel pressured in any way and only felt supported and loved by these people who did not even know me, but knew alot about the situation I was in and truely wanted to help. The people who work for CAPS have a passion for helping women with unplanned pregnancies and they do their job out of true love!! I definately recommend for you to just stop by the office if you are in crisis or just have any questions at all and are looking for support!
