Sexual health and pregnancy clinic options

Released by Kylie Bartel, Jelly Marketing


or students thinking about sexuality, Your Pregnancy Options in Abbotsford (YPO) has partnered with the University of the Fraser Valley to launch a fresh and relevant campaign to reach young people who are facing big questions about pregnancy and sexual health.


Along with giving accurate information, YPO's friendly staff genuinely care about clients and walk alongside them through difficult decisions. As their website affirms, "Some decisions you don't have to make alone."

YPO's innovative campaign directs students to a mobile friendly webpage that uses questions to give truthful information to both men and women. If students have further questions based on their digital feedback, YPO welcomes visits, emails, or phone calls, all of which are kept completely confidential. In order to meet people where they're at, YPO hopes their digital outreach at UFV will make them more accessible to those who are overwhelmed by unexpected pregnancies or sexual health concerns.
