Childcare Policies

We’re unable to provide childcare at our health center. For safety reasons children need to be accompanied by an adult when they’re in the waiting room. Only infants can accompany you to the exam room. Please bring a friend or family member to be with your children if you don’t have childcare at home.

Only infants and toddlers in a car seat or stroller are allowed in the exam room. Please make arrangements for childcare for any other children.

If you are under 18, please read facts about minor consent.

All new and returning patients and all guests must provide a photo ID.

You may encounter a protestor on the streets next to our free parking lot. Please drive directly into our fenced lot and enter the building. Protesters may try to get you to stop and talk. Be aware that stopping in the street or driveway can cause a traffic hazard, and we do not want you to have an accident.

If a blue bus is parked outside the gate, please be aware that it is not part of Planned Parenthood.
