"All of my previous notions of an abortion procedure were dissipated. The women who worked with me soothed any anxiety I had, which empowered my decision even more."

Making an Abortion Appointment

Before you call us, it is helpful to have the following information available:

  • The first day of your last normal menstrual period or the date of conception.
  • If you plan to use your insurance, please have your insurance card available.
  • If you plan to take advantage of our discount fee schedule, please have an estimate of your monthly or yearly income ready.
  • If you plan to use medical coupons, please note the type of coupon you currently have.
  • The phone counselor will ask a series of questions about your health history, drug allergies and whether or not you are currently taking any medications. This is to ensure that it is safe for you to have an abortion at our clinic.

For more information on any of these options, please see our Payment Options.

Preparing For Your Abortion Appointment:

  • One support person is welcome to accompany you to your appointment, and that person may also be with you during your procedure. However, you are not required to bring someone with you.
  • If you would like to receive narcotic pain medication during your surgical abortion appointment, please keep in mind that you will need to have someone drive you home. You may also arrange to take a taxi.
  • Please do not consume any alcohol, aspirin, recreational drugs or marijuana for 48 hours prior to your appointment.
  • Please have a light breakfast the morning of your appointment. You should not have a large meal or any greasy food before coming in, as some of the medications we may give you can cause nausea. Cereal, yogurt, toast and muffins are good choices. Bacon, omelets, fried food, etc. should be avoided.
  • If you are having a surgical abortion, please plan to be at our clinic for a total of three to five hours. If you are in your second trimester (12+ weeks), please expect to be at the clinic for eight hours. These estimates include wait time, the time between the different parts of your appointment and recovery time. If you would like to decrease your abortion appointment time to under 2 hours you can come in the previous day for a “pre-screening” appointment. When you call to make your appointment, ask our phone counselors about it!
  • Fill out these forms and bring them to your appointment.

On the Day of Your Appointment:

  • Bring your payment in full; your valid CNP medical coupon (or you can have it faxed to us at 206-323-0120); or your insurance card, a photo ID and any co-payment for which you are responsible.
  • If you had a pregnancy test done at a clinic or doctor's office, please bring the results with you. If they are not available, we can do a test here at the time of your appointment.
  • Please bring with you any medications you are currently taking. This ensures that we know the exact name and dosage of your medication.
  • If you have children, we ask that you arrange for child care beforehand. We do not allow children in our clinic.
  • For security reasons, we ask that you do not bring any large bags or backpacks into the clinic. A small purse is permissible.
  • We usually have a small group of protesters that stand on the sidewalk outside of our clinic on mornings when we perform abortions. They may try to speak to you or hand you one of their pamphlets or rosary beads. You do not have to engage with them in any way. We encourage you to simply walk past them and ring the security buzzer at our front door to be let in for your appointment. We have an officer who patrols our facility on these days, and is often at the front door for added security. Although it can certainly be upsetting to see the protesters outside of our clinic, you do not need to be afraid of them.
  • Many people, both clients and staff, are allergic or highly sensitive to perfumes and cologne. For this reason our clinic is a fragrance-free zone and we ask that you refrain from wearing strong scents on your appointment day.
  • We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing to your abortion appointment. It is also advisable to bring a snack with you (anything non-greasy such as fruit, yogurt, crackers, or bread is a good idea). If the snack does not fit in your small purse, please bring it in a clear grocery bag.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to speak with one of our phone counselors. We are always here to help!
