Pregnancy Resource Centers

Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) have traditionally been known as "crisis pregnancy centers."  Today PRC's may be referred to as: pregnancy help centers, pregnancy care centers, pregnancy medical clinics, or just pregnancy centers.

 

PRCs are typically faith-based, non-profit entities offering:

•Pregnancy options counseling

•Community referrals

•Obstetrical ultrasound

•STI testing, pregnancy tests

•Material assistance like diapers, wipes, formula, bottles, nursing supplies, baby clothes, maternity clothes, cribs, car seats

•Financial literacy classes

•Nutritional cooking classes

•Sexual risk avoidance education

•Parenting education

•Abortion recovery counseling

•Optional Bible courses

History

PRCs began in 1968, with the opening of Birthright in Toronto, Canada. Between 1969-1970 Birthright centers were opening in the United States, with locations in Atlanta and Chicago.
 

In May 1971, “Lifeline,” a pregnancy counseling hotline was opened in Los Angeles and received 759 calls for the remainder of that year.
 

In 1971, the Alternatives to Abortion International (now “Heartbeat International”), an affiliation organization for PHOs, was established in Ohio, consolidating the then 60-70 pregnancy testing centers and hotlines.
 

In 1980, the Evangelical Christian Action Council (now “Care Net”) opened its first pregnancy center in Baltimore, Maryland. 
 

As the need for quality and unbiased medical services grew, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) was founded in 1993 to pioneer medical conversion of pregnancy help centers.
