Fetal Indication Services
Germantown Reproductive Health Services provides abortions beyond 26 weeks in the case of fetal or maternal indications.
Germantown is one of a select few offices in the country that specialize in abortion services in the case of fetal abnormalities. We work closely with the patient’s physicians and genetic counselors during treatment. We also offer specialized options for the families during these tragic times.
In the United States, one in every thirty-three children is born with a birth defect. One third of these defects involve deformities of the heart. Most defects are mild and are surgically and/or medically manageable.
However, for a few, the outlook is bleak. Some will be severely challenged for life some will survive for only a very limited time and a few will not survive even a Caesarian delivery.
If you are reading this it is likely that you or a loved one need to plan how to handle a severely compromised pregnancy. We are sorry and would like to offer you our most sincere condolences. Should you decide to spare your child a lifetime of suffering and pain, our staff is available to answer your questions and help you in any way possible. (additional information: Fetal / Maternal Indication)
After abortion counseling options
When scheduling an appointment, a staff member will complete a patient intake form which includes; contact information, health history, drug allergies, previous pregnancy history, and (LMP) last menstrual period, etc. Once the patient intake is complete you will be given options as to what type of abortion procedure is available to you and the cost.
This is just an estimate based off of the information given, ultimately we will go by our ultrasound to verify gestation. All procedure cost include your ultrasound, lab work, education session, physician consult, take home medications (unless the physician prescribes something additional), birth control (select types) and follow-up visit.
