Patient information / what to expect
Whangarei Family Planning Clinic provides medical abortion up to 9 weeks of pregnancy. If your pregnancy is further along than 9 weeks, or if you choose a surgical abortion, we will refer you to Whangarei Hospital.
You can ring or drop in to the Whangarei Family Planning clinic to book an appointment. You do not need a referral.
At the first appointment you'll 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.
Counselling is available to you and can be arranged by Family Planning.
Follow-up is provided by the clinic nurses, usually by phone. Follow-up blood tests are an essential part of medical abortion.
This service provides free abortion services and related counselling services to any pregnant person eligible for publicly funded health care.
Please contact Family Planning, your GP, midwife or practice nurse to arrange an appointment at Whangarei hospital.
