Yes. Our clinic provides terminations up to 20 weeks, however, if you are aware of your pregnancy early we encourage you to reach a decision early. If you are experiencing difficulty in the decision-making process, you are welcome to attend for counselling.
Terminations after 12 weeks are still safe, however, these procedures require different techniques and greater expertise on the part of your operating doctor.
If you are over 12 weeks (in your second trimester) the operation will take longer but will still be completed on the same day. After 16 weeks, the procedure is performed over 2 days, i.e. in two stages. On day 1, after counselling and ultrasound confirmation, we will prepare your cervix and you will then leave the clinic. Overnight, there will be a very gradual softening and dilatation of the cervix (considered the world’s safest practice). When you return to the clinic the next morning, you will put to sleep and the tissue of pregnancy will be evacuated. Both of these visits will average two to three hours. Costs increase with each week of pregnancy beyond 12 weeks and generally the length of your stay in the clinic will be longer. If you suspect your pregnancy may have advanced beyond 12 weeks, please do not delay in contacting the clinic for assessment and advice.
