Highlight of Programs / Services Offered:

  • While at the Clinic you will meet with a trained counselor who will explain the procedure, provide birth control information, and give emotional support.
  • Can also provide testing for sexually transmitted infections (STI) including chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B and C (not mandatory)
  • Your doctor can refer you to the Clinic, but we prefer that you call us yourself. This will give you the chance to ask questions or voice concerns you might have.
  • Newfoundland and Labrador people with MCP are fully insured and therefore do not have to pay for abortion services at this clinic.
