What We Offer
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.
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.
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

Donations are received by the community and carefully screened as to their quality.
For Expectant Parents
We want you to have the best possible experience while you are pregnant. Understanding what is going on with your body, as well as what to expect at delivery, is how to begin!
Through our LIFE program, we offer a twenty-week curriculum of prenatal classes: what is going on in your body during pregnancy, fetal development, breastfeeding instruction and support, birthing options, labor and delivery techniques, infant care and development plus much more.
For every ten minutes you spend in our LIFE program, you earn one "BMS Buck" (Baby's Mom Shop Buck) tobe used towards anything in our Baby's Mom Shop. Or, save them up to receive a new crib, car seat or larger baby item that you might need.

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.
Although no longer needed for Medicaid, if needed, a "Pregnancy Verification" can be provided for all positive tests. A record of your visit and the result of your pregnancy will be kept in confidence at Durango Pregnancy Center.
