It’s official, Next Step Pregnancy Services has a new home ~ and we are excited to learn what the future holds for us and the men and women we serve.
In addition to all the great free services we have provided for many years, such as: pregnancy testing, limited OB ultrasounds, assistance with material goods and community resource referrals, we now have the room to expand our programs and services to include a variety of classes, support groups and mentoring programs. We have a beautiful conference room at our new office and we want to use it!
Come and check us out, we’re in the classic brick building at 19526-64th Ave W in Lynnwood.
There is confidence and strength in making an informed decision and there are many things to consider and think about when you are experiencing an untimely pregnancy. At Next Step, we can help you with many of the things you are wondering about. Check out the top 5 reasons to visit us before you decide:
Our services are completely confidential. At Next Step, we strive to help women with their situation. We understand that each woman is facing different obstacles and we are here to assist you at this time in your life. Please know that everything we talk about and anything you want us to know is confidential to the fullest extent possible. You are safe talking to us.
We provide judgement-free, medically accurate services in a professional, yet friendly setting. At Next Step, we want to help you in every way we can.
All of our services are FREE. Along with our pressure-free environment, we want to make sure every woman has access to our services, no matter their financial situation or insurance. And, we don’t make any money based on your decision.
We can confirm a viable pregnancy. When looking for an abortion, it is important to know your pregnancy is viable. Our licensed medical staff is here to perform a diagnostic medical ultrasound to provide you with all the information that you need.
Our nurses can answer all your questions that you might have regarding pregnancy, including: pregnancy options, abortion information, sex, contraception and really anything that’s on your mind.
You are intelligent, strong and bold. You can overcome anything that life throws your way. YOU GOT THIS!
You see two lines on that little piece of plastic and you feel like your world just came crashing down. So many thoughts going through your head right now. Here’s the thing, chances are you have some time to stop and really think about what the best thing is for YOU, so take some deep breaths and think about what YOUR next step should be.
We are here to help you through this process. Realizing it sounds cliche to say “we’re here for you”, we really are. There are as many scenarios, complications and obstacles as there are fish in the sea when it comes to an unplanned pregnancy and Next Step is a safe place for you to come and tell your story. We are bound by HIPPA and Privacy Laws to keep everything confidential but we are bound by care and compassion to help you to feel safe and important.
Your decision is your decision, just make sure you make the one that is right for you.
Are you wondering what else we do at Next Step besides free pregnancy testing and diagnostic OB ultrasounds?
Next Step is a pregnancy resource center helping with all things baby!
From maternity clothes to potty chairs! Because we know how difficult it can be at times making ends meet ~ and we want to help fill the gap. Besides the more than 5000 diapers a month we give to parents in need, we give away thousands of other items like maternity clothes, baby clothes, formula, strollers – literally everything baby except cribs and car seats and we have referrals to other community agencies if you need one of those!
Why do we do this?
Because we want to help single moms and families. There are not strings attached no classes to take and no income requirements. We figure that if you are here asking for diapers and baby clothes it’s because you need diapers and baby clothes – and you will be treated with kindness and respect.
How do we do this?
We are able to offer these services and supplies, completely free of charge because of donations and support we receive from others in the community – the Lynnwood Food Bank will often donate formula, diapers and baby food, the Lynnwood Senior Center Knitters will often donate beautiful handmade blankets, the Lynnwood Value Village donates lots of bigger items like highchairs, bouncy seats and exersaucers and many local churches have supply drives and bring us carloads of diapers and wipes.
Everything we give away has been given to us.
If you are in need of baby supplies, know someone who is or want to donate to a very good place, please contact our office!
You are a unique individual with ideas, thoughts and dreams all your own. There is no other person alive now, who was alive in the past or that will be born in the future that will replicate your uniqueness. Your story began at the time you were conceived – when your DNA came to life. Of course certain traits were passed on to you from your parents and other family members, but you became you when that DNA was activated!
At Next Step, we know everyone is different and if you don’t want to be pregnant you have your reasons. An unplanned pregnancy brings with it a lot of potential emotions ranging from fear to anger. We are here to listen to you and to help you work through your path. We are pro YOU! Each and every person who walks through our front door is the most important person and no matter what you come in for, you will not be judged, criticized, or tricked.
If you think you might be pregnant and need to know for sure, Next Step Pregnancy Services is a safe place for you to come. All your information is completely confidential and everything is free so nothing will be sent to your (or your parent’s) insurance company either.
