Frequent Asked Questions and How We Can Help You?

Are you unexpectedly pregnant or a new mom and not sure where to turn for help during this time?  You have come to the right page to help answer some frequently asked questions most have.

We have same-day or next appointments available right now Monday – Thursday.

When should I take a pregnancy test?

While it can be possible to receive accurate results before you miss a period, pregnancy tests are most accurate after missing a month’s menstrual cycle. 

What are my options if I’m pregnant?

Once you have verified and confirmed your pregnancy, you have three options to consider: parenting, adoption, and abortion. Finding out you are pregnant can cause many different emotions, so we encourage you to talk to a person you can trust. Our staff is more than willing to discuss your options with you and those you choose to include in your decision-making process. No one should force or pressure you into making a decision about your pregnancy. We want to provide a safe space for you to make the best and healthiest decision possible.

How will I receive my test results?

You will receive your pregnancy test results at the time of your appointment. STI results take 4-5 days to receive. We will make a plan at the time of your appointment on what works best for you to get your STI results.

Do you provide Plan B?

We do not provide emergency contraception such as Plan B, the Morning After Pill, etc. What we can provide you with is an appointment to discuss your sexual health options with a health professional on how it works and the possible side effects of its usage. For more information, call us at 865-977-8378.

I am pregnant and uninsured how can you help?

The first step is to confirm that you are pregnant. We can start there. After confirmation, the next step is to help you get set up for Tenncare. This is all done at no cost. Those who qualify for Tenncare are usually able to schedule an appointment within a few days. We can help you with referrals to OBGYNs in your area and cover your first month’s supply of prenatal vitamins.

Is everything really free?

YES! We are a nonprofit pregnancy medical clinic that also offers tangible support for women and their families. We do not receive state or federal money. Amazing, generous people in our community give so you don’t have to worry about paying a dime. 

How can you provide medical services? 

We are blessed with a volunteer medical doctor who is our medical director and sets forth our policies and procedures to serve you with holistic reproductive healthcare at no cost. Our medical professionals on staff and medical volunteers are then able to serve you through our medical services by standing orders from our medical director.

Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) is a pregnancy medical clinic providing services free of charge. In our holistic approach to medical services, we are here to provide you with the support you need before, during, and after your pregnancy. Our medical director or registered nurses on staff do not perform or refer for abortions. PRC is a 501(c)3 in the state of Tennessee.
