First Place OPTIONS has cared for thousands of women who have faced an unexpected pregnancy. Our focus is not on the past, but on the future. We are equipped to care for women facing an unexpected pregnancy regardless of marital status, age, race, or religion.

  • Expecting a baby but not sure what to expect as a new mom?
  • Unsure about new experiences such as breastfeeding or bottle feeding, changing diapers, bathing and caring for your baby?
  • Do you need somewhere to go to ask questions about your baby and the first weeks of his/her new life?
  • Would you like to find out what is available in your community for resources and other parenting support services?
