Patient information / what to expect
You can ring or drop in to the Tauranga Family Planning clinic to book an appointment. You do not need a referral.
Tauranga Family Planning Clinic provides medical abortion up to 9 weeks of pregnancy. At the first appointment you will talk with a Family Planning nurse who will organise some essential blood and swab tests. You might also need an ultrasound scan. You will then be booked in for a second appointment to be given the abortion medications. After taking the medications, the miscarriage will happen at home.
