Do you want to book an appointment for a consultation or treatment? Call us on weekdays. Please keep in mind that the clinic is usually quite busy during morning hours and you may be on hold for a while.

When booking your appointment, we will ask for the following information:

  • Your name, date of birth and telephone number.
  • Your Citizen Service Number (Burgerservicenummer/BSN) if you live in the Netherlands.
  • The date of the first day of your last menstruation, or your ultrasound scan records.
  • If you are on medication, are overweight or have a medical condition.
  • Which treatment you have chosen.

Treatment of pregnancies of 18 weeks or more are only performed at Bloemenhove Clinic in Haarlem.

Younger than 16

If you are younger than 16, you need permission (in writing) of one of your parents or your legal guardian to have an abortion. If that is impossible, please contact our clinic. We will help you out.

Appointment cancellation

Do you want to cancel or reschedule your appointment? Please let us know as soon as possible, by phone or email, so we can give your appointment to another woman.

Your clinic visit: alone or accompanied?

It’s great if someone can come with you. You may come with one companion to the clinic. This could be your partner, a friend or a family member. It is up to you if you want this person to be present at the doctor’s consultation. First, the doctor will want a quick word with you on your own, to make sure the abortion really is your decision. The person accompanying you is not allowed to be present during the treatment or in the recovery room. No children are allowed at the clinic.

If there is no one to accompany you and you are finding it hard to go to your appointment on your own, you can choose an abortion buddy. An abortion buddy is a volunteer who will accompany you to the clinic. Please visit: 

“We want to thank you so much for all you’ve done and your loving care. Of course, it’s not a pleasant procedure, but thanks to you I was able to leave the clinic with a tiny smile on my face and a calm feeling. My sincerest gratitude.”
