The dedicated nursing staff at EPS, along with physicians, resource advocates, and professional counseling work to ensure that women facing an unplanned pregnancy receive the best medical, nursing, psychosocial and spiritual care possible. We strive to educate women about their pregnancies and help to create options for them.
