Sometimes a woman's circumstances are such that she feels she just cannot continue her pregnancy. As health carers, we appreciate this is a decision never taken lightly and often a decision of last resort, when a woman sees no other choice. Conifer offers a free, confidential Early Medical Abortion (EMA) service.
Like all services, the EMA service is totally confidential to women of all ages, and free to those who have right of access to full NHS care; please find further information here
The majority of terminations are performed locally. Procedures are done up to 9 weeks at Conifer, up to 12 weeks at Hull Womens and Childrens. If a woman is further on in pregnancy, a procedure is arranged for her in specialist units elsewhere in England. We recommend therefore that even if someone is only thinking about a termination as an option, she seeks help as early as possible so if she does decide this is the best for her, she can be cared for locally.
Termination care includes a sexual health screen, supply of the reversible contraceptive of choice from the full range for afterwards and open access to our counsellors.
If you think you may be pregnant and would like to discuss this with our trained staff, please phone 01482 247111 or come to a sit-and-wait clinic at any of our sites.
