Dakota Hope Clinic Equipment

Posted: Updated:

A free clinic dedicated to educating pregnant women about their options is celebrating an important addition.

Dakota Hope Clinic of Minot has installed a new ultrasound machine that will improve its staff's ability to show women the developmental progress of their unborn child.

The clinic invites women who are pregnant to come in for free testing and counseling about all of the choices available to them.

Bonnie Carrera, executive director of Dakota Hope Clinic, says the new equipment is a critical part of what the clinic tries to do.

(Bonnie Carrera, Dakota Hope Clinic) "It is. So you can see what's happening with your body and what's changing and that there's something alive inside of there. Up until now we could just do the pregnancy testing and then the education program but now after the pregnancy test we can do the ultrasound test to make sure the baby is viable, the pregnancy is viable and just to tell how far along they are and then we would get them set up with a doctor so they can start seeing a doctor."

The purchase of the ultrasound was made possible by grants from the Knights of Columbus - both the state and national divisions of the Knights of Columbus made major donations to pay the price of the new equipment.

Dakota Hope Clinic is a non-profit operation that offers all its services for free.
