Women’s Center provides abortions from 3-24 weeks of pregnancy. We are completely confidential. All of our records and your information are kept in the strictest of confidence. Our clinics adhere to the highest medical protocols and standards of the American College of OB/GYN.
The surgical procedures are performed in a private physician environment and counselors are only present if the patient requests. We will also allow a friend or family member in the operating room with the patient during procedures for further comfort and support.
Abortion is considered one of the safest surgical procedures. Women’s Center has been providing abortion services for 3 decades with the highest safety record.

Performed prior to a missed-period. By some definitions this is not considered a termination of pregnancy. Usually performed from a week prior to your expected menstrual period to a week after a missed period. The duration of the procedure is about one minute and with only minor discomfort expected.
First Trimester Abortions
This procedure is performed by vacuum aspiration in the first three months of pregnancy. The duration of the procedure is 2-3 minutes and most patients report only mild cramping and discomfort.
Second Trimester Abortions
This procedure is done up to the 24th week of gestation. The procedure requires two visits to the clinic. At the first visit a special natural laminaria (seaweed stick) is inserted into the cervix. The patient needs to return the next day for the actual procedure. This takes 5-7 minutes.
We offer a variety of methods for pain management during the procedure and the recovery period. All of the standard medications administered during the procedures are included in the basic fees. Local anesthesia, analgesia, sedation and anxiety relief are offered to each patient.
We offer extra analgesia, complete sedation and general anesthesia upon request of individual patients and according to their needs.
Certain patients will require general anesthesia or special medication for discomfort. All of these services are available at our facilities and tailored to each patient by our Medical Doctor with 32 years of experience.
Teens and Parental Consent
If you are under the age of 18, the State of Michigan requires that you obtain a written parental consent or a judicial bypass before we can perform your abortion. We can help you in obtaining the judicial bypass completely free.
