Considering Abortion?

If you are pregnant and considering an abortion, we want to help you make an informed choice that is best for your health and well being. We provide compassionate confidential care, evidence based medical consultations about all your options, and non-judgmental support.

Be Sure You Are Pregnant

Our pregnancy decision support and pre abortion screening services include: an options consultation, a lab grade pregnancy test, and an ultrasound exam to confirm the viability of your pregnancy if you have a positive pregnancy test. 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage, so if no fetal heartbeat is detected you may not need an abortion procedure. If you are pregnant we also provide pregnancy test verification documentation.

Accurate Abortion Information

Our trained caring patient advocates and medical staff are available to discuss any questions you may have regarding having an abortion, barriers to continuing a pregnancy, as well as abortion procedures, costs, and risks associated with abortion.

There are medication and surgical abortion procedures. The types of abortions available depend on factors such as how far along you are in your pregnancy. It’s important for you to determine what is best for you, now and in the future. We recommend you be tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s.) If you have a sexually transmitted infection it should be treated before an abortion to prevent the spread of infection during an abortion procedure.

We are here to help you understand all your options so that you can make an informed decision. Please note that we are not an abortion clinic.

Welcome to Ardenwood: Officially opened to the public on July 28, 1985, the entire park includes a farm, a large forest and a mansion now called the Patterson House which was first constructed in 1857 by the farm's original owner, George Washington Patterson.

Patterson called his estate "Ardenwood", after the forested area in England mentioned in Shakespeare's play, As You Like It. There were two subsequent additions to the house. The largest was in 1889 when Patterson and his wife Clara added the Queen Anne Victorian section to the House. The second addition came in 1915 when Patterson's son Henry and his wife remodeled the old farm house section, and added rooms including the kitchen, a large bedroom above the kitchen, the sun porch, nursery, and a bathroom with indoor plumbing.
