When to refer?
You’ve had a consultation with a patient regarding an unwanted pregnancy. You have discussed abortion options. Your patient can make an appointment directly in our clinic. A referral is no longer mandatory. If you do want to write your patient a referral, you can give it to her or mail or fax it directly to us.
At our clinics, women with pregnancies up to 9 weeks, can choose the abortion pill (medical abortion) or suction curettage/vacuum aspiration . For pregnancies between 9 and 12 weeks, the abortion always consists of suction curettage. Pregnancies between 13 and 22 weeks are terminated through surgical abortion. Abortion between 18 and 22 weeks is only performed at Bloemenhove Clinic Haarlem. On this website your patient can find more information about all the treatments.
