Important Information for Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers


We appreciate the work of many wonderful crisis pregnancy centers across the United States that have helped to save countless unborn babies and provide support for women dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

Many pregnancy centers provide compassionate care to women and men dealing with all the issues surrounding an unplanned pregnancy. Pregnancy centers educate them about the consequences and side effects of abortion that many medical professionals will not address. Many women do not realize that there are many wonderful couples who would love to adopt newborn babies. Adoption is the best choice for women who do not wish to keep their babies. Many couples who are devastated that they are unable to have children would be thrilled to adopt newborn babies.

Many pregnancy centers often offer the following services at no charge:

  • Free Ultrasound

  • Counseling

  • Initial supply of pre-natal vitamins

  • Baby clothes and diapers (at some centers)

  • Referrals for medical services

  • Referrals for adoption services

We feel it is important to educate pregnancy centers and pro-life groups about one issue that they may have not given much thought to. It is important that we address the fact that many women have concerns about modesty at prenatal appointments and during childbirth. Many women do not want a male doctor or nurse to be present for the birth of their baby. Many people have the misconception that promiscuous women do not care about modesty in medical settings. This is not true because most young women especially in their 20s actually prefer a female doctor. Since some of the women who come to pregnancy crisis centers were raped or had relationships with the men who got them pregnant turn very sour, they often feel intimidated by male doctors. It is important that we work to help those women find a sensitive female OB/GYN and assist them to create birth plans to determine who should be present for their childbirth. Young women are often unaware about things that could happen during childbirth such as the fact that some hospitals let medical students observe birth and do unnecessary exams. It is wonderful that those women chose to not abort their babies, and we need to work to make sure their birthing experiences are as positive as possible.

Pregnancy centers should consider their referrals to medical services carefully and take the fact that many women prefer a female doctor into consideration. We understand that pregnancy centers prefer to refer women to pro-life OB/GYNs who would support their choice to have the babies. In some areas especially rural areas, there are not enough pro-life female ob/gyns. Pregnancy centers could encourage women with low risk pregnancies to consider home births or birthing center with midwives. Many midwives are very sensitive to women’s wishes for modesty & privacy.

Medical Patient Modesty had the privilege of helping a sexual abuse survivor, Katherine to find another hospital 45 minutes away that could guarantee her that a female ob/gyn would deliver her baby in case a midwife could not. Katherine was so upset that her local hospital could not guarantee her that a female ob/gyn would deliver her baby that she even considered having an abortion because she could not accept a chance that she might be forced to have a male doctor. Check out more details about her story on the testimonials page.

Check out steps you must take to ensure that you have an all female ob/gyn team for the birth of your baby on our article about modesty during childbirth.

Some wonderful female pro-life OB/GYNs have started all female practices in some areas of the US such as Hickory, NC, Jackson, MS, and Memphis, TN. One good example is a pro-life all female practice, East Lakeland Associates OB/GYN in Jackson, MS that was started by Dr. Beverly McMillian, a former abortionist. Check out Dr. McMillian's amazing testimony. She has worked with the pro-life movement for many years. Unfortunately, many smaller towns have a limited number of female ob/gyns. We need to work to change this.


How Can We Increase Pro-Life Female OB/GYNs and All Female Practices?

  • Encourage pro-life high school and college girls to consider becoming OB/GYNs.

  • Encourage pro-life female medical students to consider becoming OB/GYNs.

  • Encourage pro-life female ob/gyn residents to consider starting an all female ob/gyn practice in a town that does not have an all female practice.

  • Encourage pro-life female ob/gyns with small practices of one or two doctors to expand their practices and hire more female doctors so women can be guaranteed a female doctor in emergencies.

  • Encourage pro-life female ob/gyns in mixed practices that have both male and female doctors to start a new all female ob/gyn practice in the area and hire enough female doctors that would guarantee a woman a female doctor in emergencies.

  • Encourage pro-life female ob/gyns to mentor pro-life female medical students and ob/gyn residents

  • Encourage hospitals that cannot guarantee a female ob/gyn in emergencies to recruit an all female practice so at least one female ob/gyn would always be on call.
