About New Beginnings


We exist to give you true choice. Choice is liberating. Choice empowers you. Real choice means you are well informed about your options. At New Beginnings, we will empower you with the information you need to make an informed choice. New Beginnings Women’s Center has been in operation for over 15 years, providing compassionate care and support to women and men in our community facing unplanned pregnancies. We provide hope by empowering women with the knowledge, tools and caring support they need to make an informed choice. 

We are a non-profit medical clinic providing confidential medical services that are free of charge and accurate information on all options regarding unplanned pregnancy, including abortion, adoption and parenting. Unlike other clinics, we do not benefit financially from any choice our clients make. We have many resources and referral services available in order to meet the challenges and needs of every client, regardless of circumstance.


We are dedicated to providing a warm and safe environment for you to discuss your options. Our services are confidential and at no charge to everyone, regardless of age, income, nationality, religious affiliation, or circumstances. We listen to our clients with respect, courtesy, and without judgment. We provide honest, evidence-based information, answer questions, and treat everyone with kindness and compassion. Each of our clients receive a personalized care plan designed for your unique situation and choice. We provide:


We provide accurate medical information about pregnancy, abortion procedures, STI/STDs, adoption, and parenting.

Medical Services

We provide lab-grade pregnancy tests and limited obstetric ultrasounds to anyone facing an unexpected pregnancy. We also provide limited STI testing for women and referrals for their partners.


We are here for our clients during their pregnancy decision and beyond offering counseling and support. We provide services to new parents like classes and material support. We also support women who have had an abortion by offering confidential post-abortion recovery.


All our services are provided at no cost to our clients. This is possible because of the support of our community in Johnson County.

We are 100% funded through the generosity of individuals, organizations, churches, and local businesses.
