The lower Hamilton Court of Common Pleas has issued a temporary retraining order against SB23 for 14 days. Preterm is now able to see patients through 21 weeks.
Abortion is very common. In fact, 1 in 4 American women will have an abortion by the age of 45.
There are two types of abortion—surgical abortion and medication (nonsurgical) abortion. Preterm offers both types. Both types are safe and effective. Our staff will help you decide which method is right for you.
At Preterm, we address both your physical and emotional needs. We offer a variety of pain management and sedation options. Every appointment for an abortion includes routine lab work, ultrasound, routine antibiotics, and a birth control prescription or sample.
Every appointment also includes a private discussion with a patient advocate. Here you can ask questions and explore your decision in a confidential, nonjudgmental atmosphere. We also discuss your other pregnancy options, the abortion procedure, and birth control methods.
If you are pregnant, you have options. Only you can decide what’s best for you, but we can help. We trust you to make the choice that is best for you and your unique situation. Call us and one of our caring staff members can help you get the health care you need.
Ohio law requires that you receive certain information and sign a consent form at least 24 hours before your procedure. This means that the law requires at least 2 visits—sometimes more—to get an abortion in this state. The law is meant to make abortion as expensive and difficult to access as possible. The fee for your first visit is $230 and is due at time of check-in. This fee will be applied to your total cost.
Many of our patients receive financial assistance to help cover some part of the cost of their abortion services at Preterm. If you are worried about your ability to pay for your abortion, please talk to us.
