One of the biggest reasons a woman considers abortion is because of a lack of support. Whether that is from the father of the baby, her parents, or her community, support goes a long way. If she is a single mom, that support is needed even more. This is why we, at Pregnancy Help Inc., do all we can to offer women the support and advice they need and deserve. Here are four tips when looking for abortion in New York City.
1. Get all your testing done.
It may sound oxymoronic but getting a pregnancy test accompanied by an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy is essential before an abortion. Why? Because miscarriage happens to 10-20% of pregnancies in the first trimester. We don’t want you to make an abortion appointment only to find out you did it unnecessarily. In addition to this, we strongly advise getting STD/STI testing. If you need a surgical abortion, testing and treatment are imperative to not exacerbate the infection(s) to other reproductive organs.
2. Talk to a medical professional before your abortion appointment.
Although we can google a lot of things, trusting your health to google is not a good idea. This is why we suggest talking to a medical professional about all your questions and concerns. In addition to this, at Pregnancy Help Inc. we offer a safe place for you to process and think through all your emotions, thoughts, and options.
3. Check clinics in your area.
If you’re looking for an abortion clinic in New York, it is wise to check the clinic for medical malpractice. Sometimes, women can unintentionally put themselves in harm’s way because they were unaware of malpractice happening prior to their appointment. We don’t want this to be you.
