STEP 1 - Call or text the pregnancy line 360.344.1000.
- Call 360.344.1000 and leave a number where you can be reached privately.
- This phone line is managed by a small group of nurses trained to help you through the process.
STEP 2 - A trained nurse will call you back within two days.
- A trained nurse will ask questions to find out how far along you are, tell you about our reproductive services, provide accurate medical information, answer any questions, and help you through the process.
- The nurse will order bloodwork to be done at the hospital.
- Sometimes the nurse will order an ultrasound.
- The nurse will schedule an appointment with a doctor.
- If you are uncertain about continuing the pregnancy and want to talk with a counselor, the nurse can schedule time or give you a phone number for a private, non-judgemental consult.
STEP 3 - Lab work and ultrasound (if needed)
STEP 4 - Options if you decide to end the pregnancy: in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill
- If you are past 11 weeks, a nurse will give you clinic names in the region where you can get an abortion when further along.
- If you are under 11 weeks, you are eligible for medication abortion (under 10 weeks) or an in-clinic or in-operating room abortion (under 11 weeks). A nurse will explain each option so you can choose what is best for you.
- Go to your appointment with the doctor. The doctor will review your medical history and your lab and ultrasound results.
- The doctor will answer all your questions so you can be sure the abortion and the type of abortion is right for you.
- A medication abortion (the abortion pill) is done at home.
- An in-clinic or in-operating room abortion takes about 10-15 minutes. You have options to take medications for relaxation and discomfort. Afterward, you’ll rest in the clinic to be sure you are doing well before going home. You may be scheduled for a follow-up visit.
