To prepare for your abortion appointment:
If you need a 2-day or 3-day procedure, you are required to stay overnight within 30 minutes of the clinic. Local hotels offer free shuttles to the Renton clinic and/or Sea-Tac airport. Ask about hotel arrangements when you call to make your appointment. If you are flying from outside Washington State, our Renton clinic is about 10 minutes from Sea-Tac airport.
Payment is required at your first appointment. If you are low-income, pregnant, and a Washington resident, you are likely to qualify for Medicaid coverage. You can also apply by phone, call customer service at 855-923-4633. Be sure to tell them if you want an abortion, then they will expedite your application. Click here for other Payment Options.
Teens in Washington State do not need parental consent and they can apply on their own. We encourage teens to seek support and talk with an adult they trust.
You have several options for pain management during the abortion procedure. We will work with you on a plan that addresses your individual needs. Our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable and safe as possible before, during, and after your termination. Please note that sedation is required if you are over 12 weeks pregnant.
Local anesthesia consists of a medication administered into the cervix, which numbs the local area affected during procedure. It will not affect your memory of the procedure, but impact the local pain sensors. Patients who choose to receive only local anesthesia may drive home after the procedure.
Sedation (anesthesia) is an option for either first or second trimester surgical procedures. Medication is administered orally and intravenously (IV) by either a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) or Conscious Sedation Nurse. Most patients who choose to receive sedation feel very little discomfort or have no memory of the procedure. If you choose to have sedation, you will be required to have someone with you to drive you home.
