Free Women’s Health Services

 A lack of insurance or income should never come between a woman and access to women's health services. Here are some services that women in need can receive for free from free women's health clinics.

Pregnancy Tests

 Thankfully for women who suspect that they could be pregnant, there is access to free pregnancy testing in Santa Rosa. These free tests are administered by free clinics and make this kind of testing for pregnancy available to women who would otherwise not have access to it, either because they do not have health insurance and/or they cannot afford the associated costs with them.

 Additionally, there is another great benefit to receiving a pregnancy test at one of these clinics: that women who have taken at-home pregnancy tests can confirm their pregnancy results. The truth is that at-home pregnancy tests can sometimes give false-positive or false-negative results. The only way women can be confident that their results are accurate is by seeing a healthcare professional to confirm those results.

 It is important for women to be absolutely certain about whether they are pregnant or not since pregnancy and, subsequently, childbirth are such life-changing events. After all, once a pregnancy has been confirmed, women need follow-up care and the time to plan for the childbirth ahead of them. Thankfully, these clinics can provide that certainty to them and also offer the follow-up care that women need once a pregnancy has been confirmed.


 Once women have received confirmation that they are pregnant, clinics that provide free women's health services can also provide them with the follow-up care that they will need during their pregnancies. This will include educational information.

 For example, they will be informed about what pregnancy symptoms they can expect during the different stages of their pregnancy. They will also be informed about what steps they can take to mitigate the symptoms they end up experiencing.

 Most importantly, these women will have access to ultrasounds. These ultrasounds will be used to assess the health of their baby as it grows in the womb. They can provide women with the peace of mind that their baby is safe and sound if that is the case. Conversely, if there are any concerns about the pregnancy then the healthcare professionals helping them through their pregnancy can come up with solutions to address those concerns.

Birth Control

 On the other hand, for women who use birth control to manage their menstrual cycles, prevent pregnancy, or something else, these free clinics also provide them with free access to birth control. This is a great service for women who do not have health insurance and/or cannot afford birth control.

 Access to women's health services is not something that should be prevented by a lack of health insurance or money, and thankfully it is not. All women can have the peace of mind that there are free clinics that are able to provide them with all of the women's health services they could need, such as pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and birth control.
