Need an abortion?

You are not alone

It is estimated that in Australia almost 50% of pregnancies are unplanned. Although access to abortion services in Gippsland is limited there are some. It is important that you consider your options as early as possible as the longer you leave it, the less options you will have and often it will be more expensive.
