Services are available by appointment only. Pregnancy terminations are
performed up to 18 weeks of pregnancy. Only one visit to the clinic is
required for the first trimester procedure, including counselling and
ultrasound. Second trimester pregnancy terminations (between 13 and 18
weeks) require preparation and may require one or two pre-procedure visits.
A first trimester procedure takes about 20 minutes, and this includes
preparation, the gynaecological exam, some preliminary tests, and administering
medication. The actual procedure usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
A second trimester procedure takes about 30 minutes, including preparation
time. The total time at the clinic, including the recovery period, is
3 to 4 hours.
The procedure is done under local anaesthetic. Nitrous oxide gas and
intravenous narcotics are offered for optimal comfort. It is preferable to be accompanied for the return home.
Driving after the procedure is not permitted, for 24 hours.
Our team of doctors and nurses is made up entirely of women. Our doctors
have many years of experience in women’s health and abortion provision,
and our support team is equally specialised and committed to excellence
in women’s health care.
Pregnancy termination may be contraindicated in an out-patient facility
with certain health problems. It is important that all relevant medical
history be provided to us.
Our doctors are available to see our clients for a follow-up visit if
