Services and Fees

 

 

Medical Abortion

NDWH provides medical abortions (RU-486/“abortion pill”) up to 10 weeks of pregnancy (70 days from last period).  It is a 2 step, 3-4 day process!  Please call us for more information.

Surgical Abortion

NDWH provides  abortions up to 20 weeks on an out-patient basis.  Patients may choose local anesthesia (“numbing of the cervix”) only, Minimal sedation  (IM medication to help with  pain before the procedure), or I.V. sedation (“twilight sleep”) at time of the procedure.  A 2 day procedure is required for pregnancies 17 weeks and beyond.

IV sedation

Also known as “twilight sleep”, this involves medicine being injected into a vein in your arm or hand (the opposite of having blood drawn).  Medicine works very quickly and will greatly reduce any pain associated with the procedure.  You will not be asleep, but the medicine will make you very relaxed and somewhat groggy and you may remember little or none of the procedure.  It will not make you nauseated.  You must have a driver with a valid drivers license with you at “check-in” to receive the IV sedation.

Counseling

All patients will have counseling before their procedure to discuss their options and to make sure they are confident in their decision to terminate their pregnancy. We will refer patients for abortion services that we may not provide.  We will also help with referrals for prenatal care and/or adoption if you decide to continue your pregnancy.  Post abortion counseling will also be provided if requested.

Ultrasound

For “dating” your pregnancy.  Will be done before all procedures, but may be requested as a separate service and fee for any pregnant patient.

Private Appointments

Provides maximum privacy and security for patients who need or wish this service.  Appointments must be scheduled in advance and an additional, non-refundable fee will apply.  Please discuss this with the receptionist prior to making an appointment.
