Second Trimester

Second Trimester

The second trimester of pregnancy is between 14 weeks and 27 weeks of gestational age. At this time, some women feel that it is too late to change their mind to have an abortion. However, this is untrue. Second trimester abortions are available, and should only be carried out by qualified health care practitioners.

Abortions are a commonly used method of family planning.

Mistakes can happen, even when you’re being particularly careful. When slip-ups happen, and you’re not ready to bring new life into the world, know that there are options. 

Our staff has experienced health care professionals who can offer you second trimester abortions in a clean, private, hospital setting. We have helped many women, young and old, with their abortion needs. We offer a variety of abortion procedures, including surgical and non-surgical methods. 

We are committed to providing our patients with health care services that are comfortable and safe. The experts at our facility have many years of experience and are always receiving continued education and reading medical journals to ensure we’re using methods and equipment that are at up-to-date in the medical industry. 

In September 2013, a statement was signed by 100 professors of OB/GYN and was published in the American Journal of OB/GYN. The statement reads:

"Although most first trimester and many second trimester abortions can be done safely and efficiently in a clinical setting, some second trimester abortions, particularly those that are complicated by medical conditions, should  be done in hospitals with rapid access to  the operating room, interventional radiology, blood bank, and other emergency interventions."

That statement adequately shows our long-standing approach  to patient safety, which is to perform second trimester terminations in a hospital setting.

If you need to receive second-trimester abortion care, make an appointment with our staff today.
