Coleman Pregnancy Center
FREE Pregnancy Support Services for Moms
Over the years, Coleman has grown its reputation as a nationally-recognized nonprofit that offers a range of comprehensive services to support our clients facing behavioral health, housing, and employment challenges. Pregnancy Services are an extension of the many supportive services we provide. Located at our main office in Portage County, we accept clients from surrounding communities, including those in Summit and Stark counties, and even as far away as Wayne County.
Finding out you are pregnant is an exciting, but daunting time for many. For new or expecting parents, Coleman provides the services and support you need for successful pregnancy and parenting. Coleman originally built its reputation as a behavioral health provider; so if it’s counseling or behavioral health services you need, we can connect you with one of our compassionate clinicians who can provide confidential support to meet your specific needs.

Services and Programs
Babies don’t come with an instruction manual, so we offer guidance in a variety of areas:
From scheduling a pregnancy test, to processing the results and your options, to accessing prenatal vitamins and qualifying for WIC, our one-stop resource center has you covered.
The first step toward keeping you and your baby healthy starts here! Expecting and new parents will have a dedicated advocate to assist them with what to expect during pregnancy, labor preparation, infant care, and baby safety.
Our goal is to educate pregnant women and new moms on nutrition-related topics such as prenatal nutrition, exercise, breast feeding, post-baby weight loss and nutritional development for infants and children.
Being pregnant and becoming a new parent can be stressful, even to those with the best support systems. With expertise in behavioral health at its core, Coleman incorporates mental health services and emotional support into its Pregnancy Services offerings, while keeping a keen eye on the potential for post-partum depression, anxiety, substance use/abuse, and self-esteem and body image issues.
This program helps moms, their partners, and other caregivers with budgeting, prioritizing spending, and understanding responsible financial management to help minimize stress due to financial hardship.
This program helps moms, their partners, and other caregivers with finding employment or securing better employment. Clients will meet monthly with a dedicated advocate who will provide resume assistance, interview preparation, job placement support, and job retention support, among other relevant employment-related topics.
