The decision of what to do when faced with an unplanned pregnancy can be one of the hardest decisions a woman might have to make in her lifetime. For some women, the decision is clear and straightforward to make, however for others this is not the case. If you are feeling confused about your decision, then termination of pregnancy counselling might help you to work through the issues affecting your decision. At Hampton Park Women’s Health Care, we provide friendly and supportive counselling to help you make the best choice for you. Able to assist with counselling before and after abortion, our clinic ensures you have a safe space where you won’t be judged for the decision you make.
Our staff recognise how difficult this decision can be and aim to help by providing a supporting environment, whether you require counselling to help you make a decision or counselling after an abortion to help you feel completely supported. The pregnancy counsellors at our abortion counselling clinic can answer any questions you may have regarding the operation, including the risks and what to expect after an abortion. We will encourage you to make your own decision and will guide you to the available services that might help, such as psychologists and support agencies.
The cost of an abortion will vary depending on whether the procedure is being performed medically or surgically. There are also other factors that can influence price. Before the procedure is carried out, you will be informed of all costs.
Yes, abortions are legal in Victoria. The procedure can be performed safely and legally in clinics and hospitals across the state.
There are different laws for each state surrounding how late an abortion can be performed. For example, Western Australia legally allows abortions up to 20 weeks, while the law in Victoria stipulates 24 weeks. Abortions can only be performed after this time if two doctors find it medically necessary.
Termination of pregnancy counselling is designed to help you explore your options so that you can feel more comfortable with your decision in the future. Counselling after abortion can also be beneficial for those who may require some extra support after the procedure.
