In 1985, a group of local individuals joined together to support women unprepared for pregnancy. Since then, The Keim Centers has grown into a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with four convenient locations across South Hampton Roads. The Keim Centers has served thousands of women in our community.
We believe education empowers, and we strive to provide you with objective information and resources on all reproductive options so you can make a confident, fully informed decision.
Simply put, we’re your clinic for pregnancy decisions. We’re here for you – to confirm your pregnancy, help answer your questions, and provide resources or referrals that are of value to you.
For more than 25 years, The Keim Centers has offered a variety of pregnancy-related services and programs – always at no cost to you. All medical services are provided at The Keim Center of Norfolk and The Keim Center of Virginia Beach. For your convenience, our satellite resource centers in Portsmouth and Suffolk are also available. Some of our services include:
We offer FDA approved urine pregnancy tests. Receive the results of your pregnancy test during your initial visit.
Confirmation of pregnancy by ultrasound
After receiving a positive pregnancy test, the best way to determine the viability of your pregnancy and approximate gestational age is through an ultrasound. Your positive pregnancy test and evaluation by one of our nurses will determine your eligibility for an ultrasound.
Talk openly about any questions you may have with one of our licensed medical professionals about topics like abortion, failed contraception, STDs and reproductive health, and more.
The Keim Centers provides pregnancy tests and pregnancy verification forms for insurance purposes or the community organizations of your choice.

How much will my appointment cost?
You will never receive an invoice for services provided at The Keim Centers – we don’t ask for insurance information and we don’t have a billing department. All of our services are available at no charge – with no strings attached. We receive no financial gain from your decision.
The Keim Centers is able to provide services at no cost to you because we’re a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. There are local individuals, foundations and organizations that help cover these costs because they believe in helping women. Many of our staff and supporters have been where you are and understand the difficulty of making the next decision.
