At LifeCare Center, all of our services are FREE and completely confidential. You are our primary concern, and we are here for you every step of the way. We will help you navigate through the challenges you may be facing as the result of an unexpected pregnancy.  The services we provide include:

Pre-Abortion Screening

Abortion may be an option you are considering. If it is, we offer free pre-abortion screenings that will equip you to make an informed decision. Our screenings include a professionally administered and read pregnancy test, a limited ultrasound (state required), and STI/STD information and referrals.

Pregnancy Testing

We offer lab-quality tests that can be taken in our center and verified by an on-site professional. Immediate counseling is available to discuss your options if you would like.

Limitted Ultrasounds

This test performed by our licensed medical staff, paired with our lab-quality pregnancy testing, is the best way to know if you’re pregnant and also if your pregnancy is viable. This scan allows us to evaluate how far along you are in your pregnancy and if it looks like it is progressing normally. According to March of Dimes, “As many as half of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage.”

STI Education and Referrals

If you desire to protect your future, it is important to know more about STIs/STDs when you’re sexually active, pregnant or looking to schedule an abortion procedure. Without proper care and treatment of STDs, your health could be at risk.

Lay Counseling

We know you may be facing a wide range of issues and emotions, from fear of an unplanned pregnancy, to confusion over your options, concern over how to parent, need for resources, regret over a previous decision, or extreme joy. Our trained staff and volunteers are here to make sure you know you’re not alone. They are available to answer any questions you may have and help address your needs. Counseling can be done in person, by email, or over the phone and is completely confidential.

24 Hour Emergency Hotline

(877) 791-5475

In Person

Lay counselors are available to meet with you in person in our center located at 121 E. 2nd Street, Ottawa, KS 66067. No appointment is necessary during regular business hours.

Other Community Services

We can connect you with a wide variety of community resources and services that you may need, depending on your choice to abort, parent, or pursue adoption.**

Just for Men

Men are sometimes left out of the pregnancy picture. You may have no support from friends or family. You may have mixed emotions if you and your partner are facing an unplanned pregnancy. We have counseling and information just for you provided by trained male volunteers. We want you to know that you don’t have to do this alone – we’ve got your back, too.
