Your Pregnancy Options: 14+ Weeks
Surgical Abortion Procedures
If you already have an appointment scheduled at an abortion clinic, contact us for a free ultrasound before your appointment. We can confirm viability and how far along you are. Abortion costs depend on many factors and an ultrasound is needed before a surgical abortion.
Abortion options in your second-trimester are:
Dilation and Evacuation - typically performed between 14-28 weeks although it can be performed for late-term abortions as well; it is a surgical procedure in which the cervix is dilated and suction is used to remove the fetus.
Dilation and Curettage - this method should not be performed later than 20 weeks; is a surgical procedure in which the cervix is dilated so that the uterine lining can be scraped with a spoon-shaped (curette) instrument.
Note: The Abortion Pill (a medication abortion) is not available for women who are pregnant 70 days past their last known period (LMP).
As with all surgical procedures, there are serious risks and possible complications that need to be considered. Although we do not perform or refer for abortions, we can answer questions about the different types of procedures, your pregnancy rights in New York, and what you can expect. Time is on your side. Be empowered and informed.
Adoption plans can be made at any point during your pregnancy. When an expectant mother makes an adoption plan, she and the expectant father can both choose a family for the child and choose their own future.
There are many degrees of openness, and expectant parents can choose what is best for them.
A more open adoption may include letter and picture updates from the adoptive family, yearly in-person visits, or even communicating outside of the agency.
An adoption that has less openness may include letter and picture updates from the adoptive parents, but no visits. Some expectant parents choose to not have any contact with the child or adoptive parents post-placement. This would be considered a "closed adoption", where no information is shared by either party.
We can help answer your questions about adoption and your options. We can also connect you with adoption agencies or adoption attorneys who are experts in the laws by state. They can help you understand your rights, the rights of the other parent, and time-frames of when things can be done.
Please note, we do not work in NYC or Long Island.
If your pregnancy was not planned, you may have more questions than answers on parenting and what to expect. Many people who consider parenting may have questions and concerns about continuing their education, being a single mom, financial stability, and other topics.
