Pregnancy Center & Clinic of The Low Country  (Mobile Van)

Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine is pleased to announce their continued collaboration with Pregnancy Center of the Lowcountry. For the past 8 Years the Pregnancy Center and their mobile van has been located in our parking lots providing services to those without health insurance needing pregnancy care. Since the COVID19 pandemic the Pregnancy Center has stopped using their mobile van and has established a clinic in the Moss Creek Center for those living in the Greater Bluffton area. Now they are also offering services in our Ridgeland clinic on Tuesdays. We are very excited about this collaboration and welcome all pregnant patients to our clinic.

The Pregnancy Center of the Lowcountry provides free prenatal medical care through the first 16 weeks of pregnancy and assistance in securing an OB for the remainder of the pregnancy and the delivery of baby. A comprehensive health history, ultrasound and/or doppler verification of pregnancy, appointments with our Advanced Practice Registered Nurse/Nurse Midwife, laboratory testing, pap smears, testing for sexually transmitted infections and prenatal vitamins are provided. Services are free with the exception of limited laboratory fees and all services are confidential.

Please visit one of their clinics for care.
