Abortion clinic Darwin
Marie Stopes Australia’s abortion clinic Darwin is a new addition to our national network of abortion clinics, which provide caring and non-judgemental abortion services and sexual and reproductive healthcare to thousands of women and men each year.
As of July 2017 women in the Northern Territory have access to termination services. Thanks to the Termination of Pregnancy Law Reform Act 2017, women will have access to termination services from a qualified medical practitioner up to 14 weeks gestation if a doctor agrees it is reasonable, and up to 23 weeks if an additional doctor approves. If you would like to learn more about your right to this health services, you can read about the Reform Bill in this government database.
Our Darwin abortion clinic offers women non-judgemental, high quality medical abortion services. Our clinic strives to provide the best services and quality of care for our patients through our decision-based counselling services and 24-hour nurse aftercare. We staff passionate, kind and skilled practitioners with expertise in sexual and reproductive health to ensure patients are at all times at the centre of what we do. Our Darwin clinic exceeds healthcare standards with our quality processes, and is part of a national network, including day surgeries that recently received 7 Met with Merit ratings by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS).
Darwin women can access our medical abortion services without a GP referral.
Our Darwin abortion clinic provides medical abortion along with decision-based counselling and 24-hour aftercare. However, if you can’t access our clinic, tele-abortion could be an option for you. This method includes a medical abortion consultation over the phone, which offers a safe and private way for an early medical termination of pregnancy.
