Abortion Clinics Amsterdam & Haarlem

You are pregnant, and you cannot or do not want to keep the pregnancy? At our clinics, you can have an abortion up to 22 weeks.

Our team of female doctors and nurses will be there for you and guide you through every step of your treatment. We always respect your decision and do not judge you. We also help and advise you in choosing proper contraception. Our care is absolutely anonymous and (for most women) free of charge.

Abortion Clinics Amsterdam & Haarlem is a partnership of two abortion clinics: Bloemenhove Clinic in the Haarlem region (Heemstede) and Abortion Clinic Amsterdam. For more than 50 years, we have offered specialised help with abortion in the first and second trimester.

Longer waiting times

From 27 May, we are switching to a new patient registration system. As a result, waiting times on the phone may temporarily increase.

We ask for your patience for this; we apologise for the inconvenience.

To book, change and cancel an appointment you can call the clinic from Monday to Friday between 9 AM and 4.45 PM.

Prices of abortion treatment

Do you live or work in the Netherlands? Then you probably won’t have to pay for your abortion treatment. Therefore, always bring your health care ID card or policy document when you visit us.

No referral, no reflection period


From 1 January 2023, the reflection period for abortion has been abolished and you can make an appointment directly with us. You do not need a doctor’s referral.
