You are not alone.

Additionally, we have a listing of additional organizations that can provide you with pregnancy assistance both here in Tulsa, and across the state of Oklahoma. No matter what challenges and questions you are facing with your pregnancy, we are here to help.
Go Life Mobile Medical provides free limited ultrasounds both at our main office and our mobile clinics.
Ultrasound imaging uses high frequency sound waves to produce pictures, break up lights and provide medical professionals with an additional tool for diagnosis & treatment. Ultrasound is widely used to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants.
Ultrasounds are also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.
Ultrasound requires little to no special preparation. Medical professionals will inform you on which ultrasounds require dietary restrictions.
Obstetric ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of a baby (embryo or fetus) within a pregnant woman, as well as the mother’s uterus and ovaries. It does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and is the preferred method for monitoring pregnant women and their unborn babies.
Limited Obstetrical (OB) ultrasounds are a valuable pregnancy resource for any pregnancy.
They are a high-quality and vital tool to provide information and answer questions you may have about your pregnancy.
Our experienced medical professionals are certified and can provide you with critical information about your pregnancy from an OB ultrasound.
With a limited OB ultrasound, we can determine if the pregnancy is in the right location, in your uterus. We may also be able to detect the presence of the baby’s heartbeat.
These factors can be very important so that if we do not see what we would expect, we can help you seek out appropriate care.
Our ultrasound services are completely free of charge to you.

There are two main types of pregnancy tests: urine and blood tests.
Both tests detect the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).
This hormone is produced by the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining. Go Life Mobile Medical performs urine pregnancy tests and can provide a proof of pregnancy certificate.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Pregnancy tests work by detect Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) and using a color indicator if hCG is present.
Pregnancy tests work on a chemical level, using molecular magnetism. A standard pregnancy urine test contains a molecule with color that is designed to attach itself to hCG. When it finds the hCG the color is released and it shows up in the tiny window on the pregnancy test.
hCG levels increase as the baby grows, so the reliability of the test is even better two weeks after conception versus just one week after conception.
A test that shows “not pregnant” may actually be inconclusive because the hCG levels may be too low to show up on your test.
The word “chorion” refers to the outer membrane surrounding a developing embryo. An embryo describes a stage of human development, just like infant, toddler, or adolescent, and refers to a human life in the first eight weeks of development.
After eight weeks the growing baby is called a fetus, and we’re called infants or newborns on our birthday. So chorionic originates from the term chorion.
Gonadotropin is a specific type of hormone.
All combined, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is defined as a hormone produced as a human embryo (baby) develops.

Urine Based Pregnancy Tests Provided by Go Life
Urine tests can be performed at home or in a clinic. Either by dipping a stick into the urine or by placing a few drops of urine into a container.
When can I take a urine test?
Many doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. This is usually about two weeks after conception.
How accurate are urine tests?
Urine tests or home pregnancy tests are around 97% accurate when done correctly. But all of them will state their accuracy on the box.
Remember, if a test is administered incorrectly or taken too early, the result can be inaccurate.
Blood Based Pregnancy Tests
There are two types of blood based pregnancy tests: A quantitative blood test measures the exact amount of hCG in the blood, and a qualitative hCG blood test gives a simple yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant or not.
Advantages of having a blood test done:
- Earlier detection than a urine test – about 7-12 daysfrom possible conception.
- Measures the concentration of hCG hormone in the blood.
Disadvantages to having a blood test done:
- More expensive than a urine test.
- Takes longer to get result than urine test.
- Must be done in a doctor’s office
