We believe the best health care involves the whole person—addressing physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health—and that of the family and community. Since 1984, we have worked for a healthier community and for healthier babies.
Our excellent staff of Women's Health providers provide women's well care services, such as gynecological exams and well-woman visits.
Free Pregnancy Tests
Lawndale Christian Health Center offers free pregnancy tests at each of our sites. We want to be available to you when you need us. Pregnancy tests are available on a walk-in basis, or you can also call ahead to schedule a same-day appointment with your Primary Care Provider. A provider, nurse, or test counselor is available to provide you with immediate, lab-quality results, along with any counseling you may need.
In addition to providing free pregnancy testing, assistance with applying for your medical card, and a variety of free support services, LCHC offers a program called the New Birth Boutique to all of our pregnant patients, the only program of its kind. By completing important activities you can earn points to be redeemed for useful items, like strollers, playpens, infant swings, and diapers.
Centering is a unique style of prenatal care as a group. Its aim is to build a community that empowers women to be actively involved in their own care and better equipped to make healthy choices throughout their pregnancy and beyond. Expectant mothers meet for 10 sessions with a group of 8-10 other pregnant women with similar due dates. Each time a group meets, women have the chance to record their pregnancy progress, check their baby, address specific concerns one-on-one with their provider, and discuss pregnancy issues that are relevant to them as a group, including exercise, nutrition, stress reduction, signs of labor, breastfeeding, new baby care and postpartum issues.
Centering is a prenatal check up, nurse visit, and childbirth education all in one appointment! To learn more click here: Centering
