At our patient-oriented Center, we are here to give you many birth control options.
If you are having a termination of pregnancy at our Center, we can provide you with birth control options up to 12 months following your procedure. This gives you time to schedule an appointment with your OB/GYN for a women’s wellness exam.
EMW Women’s Surgical Center provides a FREE, one month supply of contraceptives for all medically eligible, post-abortion patients — IN HAND—prior to leaving the facility.
The free one-month supply is in addition to the 12-month prescription that all medically eligible patients receive during their family planning consultation at EMW.
We offer several birth control options on the day of your procedure.
