We support women during pregnancy and beyond!

Since 1973, Essential Pregnancy Services (EPS) has existed to provide life-affirming, holistic support to women experiencing unexpected or under-supported pregnancies. Our work is founded on the principle of upholding the dignity of all persons – born and unborn – through compassionate care for women at risk for abortion.

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. Medical information, pregnancy options education, material assistance and resource information inspires women to make informed decisions and choose life. All services are provided at no cost with no obligations, judgments or expectations.

EPS supports women and families during pregnancy and beyond. We are here to provide women with 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.


Since 1973, EPS has existed as a safe-haven for women and families facing unexpected 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.


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 cost free.

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.
