Now offering referrals for free elective ultrasounds. (Also organizing pre-natal support groups!)


Plattsburgh Pregnancy Center (PPC) needs to raise $25,000 for the purchase of an updated ultrasound machine with a five year warranty, adjustable exam table, and a large wall mount flat screen monitor to further their ministry for pregnant women and their babies.

An agreement has been made with Babies N Bellies of Plattsburgh for them to administer the free elective ultrasounds and to be the responsible agent in the ultrasound practice at 62 Brinkerhoff Street. Babies N Bellies will also coordinate pre-natal support groups and "Mom and Me" groups following the birth of children.

If you are willing to help Plattsburgh Pregnancy Center raise $25,000 for this project, please send your donations to: PPC, 62 Brinkerhoff Street, Suite 103, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. Write: Ultrasound Fund on the memo line of your check. PPC is a charitable non-profit 501 ( C ) 3 organization and we will send you a statement regarding your tax deductible gift.
