Hi, my name is Chris and I'm one of the Office Managers at the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry. When I took this job a little over a year ago, I had no idea what went on in a pregnancy clinic. Although I knew they provided free services to women facing unplanned pregnancies, I didn't realize the scope of the work they do. I'm amazed as I now see first hand the extent of care and practical help offered each day in our 3 locations - and for over 38 years!

Women are shown love, truly without judgement, by trained staff and volunteers that take time to actually listen to our clients and hear about their situation. We help empower and equip these women by sharing critical information regarding their pregnancy decision. This means we look at the whole person - the physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of their choice and how it could impact them as an individual. This is not cookie cutter service, but personalized care addressing the needs and concerns of the unique person in front of us. And most importantly, we do this offering hope that transcends her current crisis - the hope found in a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

I'm proud to be a part of this life-saving mission working alongside some pretty amazing people as we stand up for life. I pray we will continue to reach even more women so they can hear that they are loved (and their babies) and receive the help they need!

I wish I would have known about the Pregnancy Clinic years ago. At 14 I didn’t know the options available to me and unfortunately chose abortion. I regretted that decision to the point of suicidal depression for years. Thankfully I found the Pregnancy Clinic in 2008 and they helped me to find healing following that regrettable decision so long ago. The resources and counseling they provide to the community are so important and unmatched anywhere else. I am thankful they were there to help me turn my life around and I will choose to support them anyway I can so other women can find what I so desperately wish I would have known.

We have we involved with the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry for the last eight years. They are such a blessing to our community. The love and support they provide to young ladies who are looking for hope, compassion and answers to very important life changing questions. The staff will walk along side them during what is sometimes a very confusing time. We have been so blessed to see the children of these ladies grow in to such wonderful young men and women . God's continued blessing to the future generations

The nonprofit saved my baby and created a family. I was unable to afford a pregnancy test which is how we found the Pregnancy Clinic. They offered me love and encouragement and a viability ultrasound that changed my heart. That baby they showed me is now 6 years old and a big sister to two other girls! Her daddy and I got married and found God all because of this ministry

One of the things I most love about the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry is that they are authentic and genuinely care about the clients and train us volunteers to render the best care
possible . The range of services provided, including free educational classes, aim to meet the special and unique circumstances of each client. Over the several years I have been with the ministry I have served many women from different backgrounds. One client I had was pregnant with her first child, and had no idea what she wanted to do. She didn't know how her parents would respond, and wasn't sure if she was going to mention the pregnancy to the boyfriend because she wasn't sure what he would want to do since neither of them were the best financial situation to have a child. Not only was I able to serve her, and offer guidance, but the clinic as a whole was able to support her. The clinic provided a free ultrasound (3 free ultrasounds to be exact - an initial one by herself, one with her boyfriend, and after she told her parents, her mother came the 3rd time ), four free classes, one of which was a financial class she and her boyfriend attended together; and a baby essentials starter bag. The pregnancy clinic ministry offers support to women in unplanned pregnancy situations who need to feel loved, heard, cared about, and not judged; and that is why I continue to serve here.

As Director of Administration with Maryland Right to Life, I have had the pleasure of working with Pregnancy Clinic Ministry on a number of special projects. We have worked closely together at educational events as well has during the legislative session where their Executive Director provided expert testimony on several occasions. This team is simply top notch. They live and breath their mission to help young women in crisis and save lives. Their passion and hard work is evident in everything they do and I am blessed to know them!

I'll always be grateful for being a part of this Life-affirming ministry. I worked with the clinic for 10 years as a Registered Nurse, trained to do fetal ultrasound, STI testing, some pre-natal care and lots of education and counseling.

At a time in their lives when trying to make a most important and informed decision, the Pregnancy Clinic provides a listening ear, compassionate heart and great resources to women and couples.

Our community has benefited greatly by this ministry.

The Pregnancy Clinic has a long-standing reputation of care and help to women and families facing unplanned pregnancies and sexual health issues. All services are free. The clinics have grown and expanded to three offices and more services over the years. It's great to have this resource for so many in the AA and PG area, that serves people in other counties as well!

This pregnancy clinic is one of the greatest gifts to our community. The way that they care holistically for the women, children and families they interact with is beyond comparison. They treat everyone with unconditional love and respect and literally save lives!

I have had the honor of working with the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry in some capacity for just short of 10 years and in that time I have seen the incredible way they serve our community. They work tirelessly to provide free services to each client with compassion, care, and integrity.

I continue to support this ministry with my time and treasure because I have been able to witness first-hand the impact of those gifts. In my role at the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry, I frequently had the opportunity to connect with families whose lives have been transformed. I've hugged grateful mommas, stood as a witness at a wedding, held tiny infants in the recovery room, and hugged bashfull middle-schoolers on the football field -- all of which wouldn't be possible without the work of this ministry.

The ministry has operated in the highest integrity,faithfulness, professionalism with compassionate caring for everyone that enters their centers. I refer clients there and I ask them for feedback from their appointments , every report says the same thing, “ it’s a warm, clean and caring place”. A great place to go when you’re facing a crisis pregnancy.

The Pregnancy Clinic is full of both staff and volunteers who care immensely for the clients that come through the doors as well as the babies in their wombs. Women facing crisis pregnancies will not only find free services that are helpful to them...they will also find genuinely loving ears to listen, share information, and direct them to resources they may need. As a newer volunteer, I can say that all volunteers are very well trained and treat clients as they would a member of their own family. We care for the health of both the mother and baby and work hard to insure that the client knows ALL of her options and is informed before she makes any decision regarding her baby. The information we share is constantly reviewed and kept up to date to insure that it is accurate, and the staff works tirelessly to provide support and free services to the community.

This is a group of people who reach into other people’s lives in huge ways every day! They bring comfort, love and support to women who are afraid and often alone. They show them the love of Christ and offer the gospel in peace.

They hold out the gift of life to both mother and child.

They empower women with physical, emotional and educational support, walking closely with them through their day to day life. We are privileged to help whatever way we can and we are thankful for the many ways they strengthen our community; from prenatal care to maternal support, parenting classes, youth education, medical screenings, infant care classes, baby supplies and more. This is one day that we can support them in the work they do every day.

I became connect with BCPC years ago when I was contemplating abortion with my now 7 year old son. The pregnancy center was extremely kind, compassionate and supportive in helping me to realize that life for my son was possible and the right decision I could have ever made. Such a great organization.

I’ve worked as a counselor with the Pregnancy Clinics of Annapolis, Bowie and Severna Park for over 5 years. The training all counselors and paid employees receive is some of the best in the nation. Meeting all who walk through our doors with love, no judgement, and the goal of helping them with the services we offer is our honor and duty to God. With the help of the Holy Spirit as we go about our business, we give God the glory for this opportunity to serve Him.

I have been working with this organization since 1992. I continue to remain involved despite the busy demands of my time as mother of 5 because of the integrity and professionalism of the Pregnancy Clinics. Working with other men and women who desire to serve those in difficult circumstances with dignity and respect has been my privilege over these last 24 years. The staff and other volunteers are amazing and the positive reviews of our clients continue to affirm my choice to stay connected and involved.

I've been involved with this pregnancy ministry since 1982 as a counselor, trainer of counselors, Board of Directors member, and a staff position recently. I continue to volunteer in the STD clinic for several years. This ministry is the real deal.... in loving the clients, in offering free services medically, spiritually, physically and emotionally to everyone who enters our doors. I have been in ministry for 35 years and can say that this one is one of the top clinics in the country, as I have known many directors across the nation. Your dollars are spent with great discretion. The leadership excels in the stewardship of your donations. I'll support them as long as I live for the Christ-centered ministry for families.

This is an organization that operates with the highest level of integrity, skilled leadership, and dedicated staff and volunteers. They deliver qualified medical care, reliable and factual health information, and compassionate and caring services to all women/families, regardless of background, ethnicity or religious affiliation. I'm so glad to have this organization in our community to make sure that women have the facts they need to know the alternatives to abortion, and to become empowered and supported to choose life and raise their child.

In 2001 was very depressed as a result of an abortion 28 years before when I was 16. By chance I saw an ad in a local newspaper for the Pregnancy Clinic. The Clinic offered a post abortion group where I found healing and peace.
The Clinic offers help for women and men who are facing unplanned pregnancies, std testing for women, and classes for clients.
I am forever grateful for this very special place.

Jean and I have had the privilege of participating and supporting this pregnancy clinic for the past five years. The leaders are great stewards of the finances contributed by donors. The clients who come to the clinic immediately experience a warm, respectful staff who want to listen with compassion.....and no agenda. The clinic is staffed with professionals in the medical field, qualified to answer difficult questions and council those with special needs.
All of the many services rendered at the clinic, including ultra-sounds are of no cost to the clients. The pregnancy clinic has 30+ years, with an impeccable reputation of serving women in our community. Today....there are many great stories to tell about women needing loving care during a difficult time.......and found it at the three locations of Annapolis, Bowie and Severna Park.
