Putting Women First

Medical abortion by telehealth (phone)

For women who cannot or do not want to come to our clinics, we can provide medical abortion by tele-abortion (phone) in most cases for gestations under 10 weeks. This complete service is free of charge for women eligible for public-funded health care in Mid-Central, Whanganui, Wairarapa, and Southern DHB regions.  If you are outside of these regions or not a New Zealand resident/citizen, you can still use our tele-abortion service. The initial consultation is free and without obligation.  However, if you are not eligible for public-funded healthcare in Mid-Central, Whanganui, Wairarapa or the Southern DHB regions and decide to proceed with telehealth abortion, the cost is $950 and is fully inclusive.  

Tele-abortion, or a medical abortion by phone, provides a safe and private way to terminate an early pregnancy with medication without having to visit one of our clinics or find a local prescriber.

At-home abortions do not require you to visit one of our clinics. You will have a consultation over the phone with us; we will explain medical abortion and take a medical history from you to make sure that medical abortion treatment is suitable. We will organise any investigations that are required. You are then sent the abortion medications by courier, which takes 1-3 days to arrive, and then proceed in the privacy and comfort of your own home. During the whole process, you will be partnered by our team who will be available to you 24 hours a day.
