Perhaps you already have children and you think you need parenting tips or advice. Maybe it has been suggested by the court for you to complete parenting classes. At Durango Pregnancy Center our parenting classes are absolutely free! Working one on one with our client advocates you will learn, through a six week curriculum, what is needed to be able to interact with your kids positively and get a better result. If you're a first time parent, or a more experienced one, give us a call and make an appointment or stop by our offices. You will be given a certificate of completion if you successfully complete the six weeks.

First Choice Ultrasound
learning, inspiring, fostering and educating
Our pregnancy tests are hCG urine tests that are laboratory quality. Depending on the hormone levels of the woman these tests can read a positive pregnancy fairly early. When you have an appointment you will be with a staff or volunteer who will focus on your needs as well as talking with you through all your healthy options. Your pregnancy test will be self-administered.
If needed, a "Pregnancy Verification" will be completed for all positive tests. A record of your visit and the result of your pregnancy will be kept in confidence at Durango Pregnancy Center.
Peer Counseling and Support
Whether you are a young teenager who is terrified that you might be pregnant or a woman looking forward to becoming a mom, Durango Pregnancy Center is here to walk with you through your pregnancy. Our trained staff are prepared to listen and respond, without judgement, to whatever your circumstances might be.
Giving Support After an Abortion
We are not here to judge you if you have had an abortion. Sometimes women who have had abortions start experiencing emotional trauma immediately or even years later. Suffering in silence is not a healthy option! Don't be afraid to come in and talk with our trained staff about what you are feeling and experiencing.
1 in 4 college students have an STI
STI (sexually transmitted infection) - you are a carrier of an STD but don't have any visible affects - yet. You can still infect a sexual partner.
STD (sexually transmitted disease) - you have the symptoms of a diagnosed STD - see "Sexual Health" for symptoms for some of the more common STDs.
Durango Pregnancy Center offers free testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea - two STIs that frequently don't show any symptoms right away. However, even though you don't have the symptoms you could be a carrier of these two and be infecting others.
If you are having sex with one or more partners it is critical that you be tested. Sexually transmitted infections should not be ignored!
Get tested at Durango Pregnancy Center for free. Lab results usually have a turnaround of approximately two days. Call to make an appointment! 970.247.5559
For Expectant Parents

For every ten minutes that you spend in our LIFE program you can earn one "BMS Buck" (Baby's Mom Shop Buck) that can be used towards anything in our Baby's Mom Shop or save them up and you can earn a new crib, car seat or larger baby item that you might need.
