Mobile Medical Unit - First Step Women's Center

Mobile Pregnancy Confirmation and STD Testing Services

The First Step Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) takes our crucial services into the community – to you – where you will experience the same quality of care as if you’d come to our permanent location.  Our MMU is fully equipped to provide no cost pregnancy testing and ultrasounds, as well as STD testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea for all women, all without an appointment.

Services We Provide

 

Pregnancy Testing

The First Step medical staff perform lab quality pregnancy testing, which measures the hCG hormone in the urine after the embryo (early pregnancy) has implanted in the uterus.

Ultrasounds

An ultrasound can show you if there is a developing pregnancy in the uterus. Ultrasounds are completely safe and are performed by our trained staff. Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to identify a growing fetus. An ultrasound can show how far along you are, detect a fetal heartbeat and determine if the pregnancy is in the uterus. The results of your ultrasound are kept private and we will discuss our findings with you immediately.

Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Testing

If you have had sex, it’s possible you could have an STD. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are the two most common types of STDs.  Most women have no symptoms of these infections, so it is important to be tested and treated.
