Health care on wheels is just one way a Pueblo clinic helps Southern Colorado women

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- A pregnancy center in Pueblo is working to make it easier for women across Southern Colorado to have access to vital health care.

A Caring Pregnancy Center (ACPC) women's clinic has been in the Pueblo community for over 38 years.

The ACPC women's clinic offers free women's reproductive care through various options at their clinic and life service support center.

Some services they offer include pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, STI testing and treatment, pregnancy mentoring, pregnancy support, community resources, financial consulting, and referrals.

The CEO of the non-profit, Tamra Axworthy, said she recommends scheduling an appointment, but they do accept walk-ins.

The clinic is open on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Tuesdays to Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m

If clients can't make it to the center, ACPC has a mobile unit that goes up to a 100-mile radius from Pueblo. The mobile unit was a new addition to the program in 2016. The mobile unit offers pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and community referrals.

Axworthy said she would never forget helping two people with an adoption.

"They get to have an open adoption and still have a relationship with that child. This is probably five years later now, and it's just really cool to see how those things have changed to be more convenient and passionate to birth moms as well as adoptive parents," said Tamra Axworthy.

Axworthy said they would also help refer clients to resources in their community if the Pueblo clinic is too far away.

"So when we're partnering with other agencies, we want to know where we can send people that are close to them... if we're in Walsenburg, we're not going to have them come back here for classes. We will connect them to someone in Walsenburg that can help them," said Tamra Axworthy.

  1. I think this is a wonderful service and a great group, and I support them wholeheartedly. I think the story should be clear, however, that this is a pro-life organization. The Web site is very clear about that, the organization in not trying to be opaque.
