Medical consultation

There is a mandatory consultation with the health provider of your choice: either your GP or your consultant gynaecologist.

This consultation aims at informing you about:

  • The different methods of termination of pregnancy (medical or surgical termination of pregnancy)
  • Any possible risk or side-effect relating to the abortion

At the end of this consultation you will be given an information pack.

You will be offered a counselling meeting (optional if you are an adult, mandatory if you are under-age)

Medical abortion

It can take place in hospital (short stay), or at home depending on the stage of your pregnancy and other criteria.

Surgical abortion

A surgical abortion (suction method),will be performed in hospital (short stay) under general anaesthetic.

Pre-Anaesthetic consultation

If you are having a surgical abortion (vacuum aspiration) under general anaesthetic, a pre-anaesthetic consultation is mandatory.
