The Florida Pregnancy Care Network, Inc. offers a statewide alliance of pregnancy support organizations. As a private non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, FPCN provides financial and other support for member organizations, enabling and assisting them in their mission to support pregnant women in need in Florida.
The network consists of approximately 60 Florida pregnancy resource organizations providing direct services to pregnant women and their families at approximately 100 site locations. These services, including counseling, referral, material support, training and education, help meet the emotional and physical needs of pregnant women and assist them in preparing to parent their baby or place their baby for adoption.
In addition to pregnancy services, FPCN is proud to help providers offer well woman exams free of charge for qualified individuals. The exams can vary, but may include a breast examination, a pelvic examination, and a pap smear. Some FPSSP providers offer free sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing.
Florida Pregnancy Care Network administers the Florida Pregnancy Support Services Program (FPSSP) for the Florida Department of Health. The purpose of the FPSSP is to coordinate and enhance the efforts of local pregnancy resource organizations to increase the availability, quality and awareness of pregnancy support services that promote and encourage childbirth.
FPSSP provides financial reimbursement to pregnancy resource organizations for their expenses incurred in the provision of pregnancy support services, including pregnancy testing, counseling, education, training, and referral to pregnant women and their families. Even though many of the pregnancy support organizations that provide FPSSP services are faith-based, no proselytization or sharing of religious information is permitted under the program and contracting organizations must ensure that they strictly adhere to this regulation.
FPSSP provides a state-wide toll-free number and website to connect pregnant women with nearby pregnancy resource organizations. All services are offered at no charge to the women and their families. Services under the FPSSP can continue for one year following the birth of the child. The Pregnancy Support Services Program has been funded by the Florida Legislature since 2005.

“Providing uninsured Florida women an annual physical, Pap and labs has been tremendously needed in our community. Last year women from 10 Florida counties traveled to Tampa (some drove over an hour) to receive this medical service. Many of these uninsured women hadn’t had a physical and/or a Pap smear in 6-8 years.” Ana Hidalgo Stooks

"The counseling parameters and restrictions attached to the funding have helped us be intentional and efficient in regard to the order of the information we gather and share with the client.” Dr. Katherine Gratto, Executive Director, Sira Gainesville
