Birth Choice welcomes a mobile unit
Birth Choice is welcoming Evangeline. No its not a person, its this mobile unit right here. They just welcomed it, just brought it in and now they're ready to serve more counties in West Tennessee.
“Now we're going to be able to go into counties, serve under-served women who cant get to us because they live too far.” says clinic director Chris Veteto.
After nearly 31 years, Birth Choice is expanding their services and putting a clinic on wheels.
Right now Birth Choice serves about 850 women a year, and with this new addition they hope to increase that number to more than a thousand.
The bus will offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and direct women to other services that may help them.
“It's just very hard when a woman is facing a pregnancy she wasn’t expecting, maybe she doesn’t know what to do. We are here to help encourage them," says director of development Tiffany Dawson.
On Tuesdays the mobile unit will be in Brownsville, on Wednesdays they will be in Oakland, and on Thursdays they will be in Bolivar.
The 150 thousand dollar expansion couldn’t have been done without support from the community.
Anyone wanting to know the locations and the times that they’ll be heading out to those counties can simply visit scanmobile.net for more information.
