WE SUPPORT WOMEN BEFORE AND AFTER THE BIRTH OF A CHILD
Since 1973, Essential Pregnancy Services (EPS) has existed as a haven for women facing unplanned pregnancies. Our work is founded on the principle of upholding the dignity of all persons – born and unborn – through compassionate care for women. We believe it is important to offer our time and resources to assist women, facing the most difficult circumstances, to understand their pregnancies and to learn about all options and help available to them. Our accurate medical information, factual and science-based education, and informational resources empower women to make informed decisions for themselves and their health. All services are provided at no cost.
The mission of EPS is to empower pregnant women and parenting families to make life-affirming choices for themselves and their children through medical services, education, professional counseling, material assistance and resource information.
WE SERVE WITH PASSION
EPS supports women and families before and after pregnancy, as well as women and men who may be at risk for STI/STD. It is a place where women can receive answers to their immediate questions on pregnancy, and have their voices heard in a safe, peaceful and non-judgmental environment. All services are free and confidential.
WE ARE COMMITTED
EPS is committed to providing compassionate care and comprehensive education to support women in making informed choices. Since 1973, EPS has existed as a safe-haven for women and families facing unplanned pregnancies. What began as a single location with two part-time employees is now a network of three centers in the metro Omaha area – Benson, Maple Village and Bellevue.
WE LIVE BY THESE TRUTHS
EPS functions as an independent, non-profit, non-denominational and non-political corporation. We welcome persons of any race, color, creed, religion, national origin, age, marital status and ability. EPS provides client services that are personal, confidential and at no cost. We maintain relationships with partnering community resources, refer all matters concerning adoption to appropriate state-licensed agencies, ensure all staff and volunteers receive proper training to uphold best practices, and offer clients honest and open answers.
