Abortion or Miscarriage Support

Support for the full-spectrum of pregnancy outcomes

Since the beginning of my practice, I’ve always committed to providing support to people experiencing pregnancy loss or termination.¬†All experiences with fertility can have a profound impact on us and deserve reverence. If you are experiencing a loss or need an abortion, make sure you have the support you deserve.

I can provide

  • Options counseling
  • Knowledge about Boston-area medical providers
  • Support in-home (or out of clinic) for a medication abortion
  • Potential in-clinic support (depends on the clinic and nature of procedure, but let’s talk)
  • Ride support, especially if you need anesthesia and cannot arrive to or leave your appointment alone
  • Herbal support surrounding your experience
  • Support in-home post loss or abortion procedure (childcare, pet care, meal prep, companionship, emotional support)
  • Information about traveling to Massachusetts from other states for reproductive healthcare

If anyone you know needs, but can’t afford an abortion, please contact the EMA Fund.

This service has always been free. As of 2024, MassHealth pays for doula support, regardless of pregnancy outcome. If you are a MassHealth member, and you are experiencing a pregnancy loss or need an abortion, you can have a free doula to provide support before, during and after your experience and up to one year post-pregnancy.
