WCMC provides services and resources for men and women of Baldwin County, assisting them to make fully informed decisions about their pregnancy and sexual health.
All Services are Free and Confidential
At WCMC, we use lab-certified urine tests that are 99% accurate and can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone within 10 days after conception. For positive test results, we provide education and resources based on a woman’s needs and plans. We also provide a Pregnancy Verification form to submit for insurance benefits.
We believe a woman should be fully informed on all her pregnancy options. It’s why we offer accurate information on abortion, adoption and parenting. At WCMC, she can find support and talk through her options in a safe, confidential, judgment-free environment so she make a decision that is best for her and her baby.
Obstetrical ultrasound is a valuable tool to confirm a pregnancy. Our medical staff provides limited ultrasound to determine how far along a woman is in her pregnancy, if a fetal heartbeat is detected and if the pregnancy is in the uterus. This information is important before a woman makes a decision about her pregnancy. A picture is worth a thousand words. Over 97% of our clients who see their baby on an ultrasound screen choose life for their child.
1 in 2 sexually active young people will contract an STD by the age of 25. The Center for Disease Control recommends all sexually active persons be tested for STDs every 3 months. We keep a check on our client’s sexual health status by providing free STD testing. For positive tests, we provide referrals for medical care.
Every woman’s abortion experience is unique. It’s common for women to experience struggles with depression, sadness and even grief. The most important thing for a woman to remember is she’s not alone. If you or someone you know is struggling to get over a past abortion decision, we can provide a safe place to find closure.

Our sexual integrity programs helps young people find sexual wholeness in all areas of life – physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual. Through our SRA program provided to the schools, and individual counseling at WCMC, we equip young people with the skills and tools to have respect, integrity, and responsibility concerning their sexual health.
Prenatal care is essential to a healthy pregnancy. It’s why we provide medical referrals to connect women with an OB/GYN in the area. Most all of our medical referrals accept Medicaid. We offer more than just medical referrals. We also connect our client’s with financial and housing assistance, adoption agencies, professional counselors, domestic violence support, substance abuse treatment, and more. We are committed to providing the medical care and resources our clients need.
We understand that with a new baby comes the need for material resources such as diapers and bottles. WCMC supplies new parents with what they need to begin the new journey into parenthood. If you would like to provide tangible help to our clients, here’s a complete list of our Care Closet needs.
Our parenting classes are offered for all expecting moms and dads to equip them on the basic fundamentals of parenting. New parents learn valuable information about pregnancy, childbirth, child development, parenting skills and more. Upon completion of the course, they receive a free layette set and a brand new car seat for their newborn.
The role of a father is vitally important in a child’s life. For this reason, we offer a Builders Program, a course on fatherhood designed to teach life skills on how to build a solid foundation for a family. Upon completion of the program, our men receive their very own toolbox complete with a brand new set of tools. If you are interested in providing a set of tools for one of our Builder graduates, these are the tools we provide in each toolbox. Each tool is significant to a lesson in the program.
The heart of Women’s Care Medical Center is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. From the beginning, WCMC has always been committed to sharing the Gospel with every client that walks through our doors. Saving babies and meetings needs are important, but saving souls is what lasts for eternity.
