Do you provide travel advice for overseas clients?

As abortion is restricted in some countries such as Ireland, if you decide to have an abortion you must travel to the UK and pay privately for the service. We can provide you with all the information you need to make this appointment.

Marie Stopes UK will make an appointment for you at one of our centres to suit you and manage your travel arrangements.

If you contact us ahead of travelling we can:

  • Answer any questions you might have on treatment choices, prices, maps, travel and accommodation.
  • Arrange for you to have counselling over the phone or point you in the direction of local counselling services.
  • Arrange for you to discuss your options with an experienced nurse.
  • Advise you on how many weeks pregnant you may be once you've had a scan.

Fees for Irish women

Our standard fees are also different for clients travelling from overseas. Specifically, all women travelling from Ireland and Northern Ireland to one of our centres in mainland UK can access a medical abortion service which can be completed within a day if you're between six and nine weeks pregnant. You can also visit our new centre in Belfast for medical abortion only.

Same Day consultation and treatment 

If you're travelling to one of our centres in mainland UK, appointments will be in the morning so you can complete the treatment in one day. You need to arrive at the clinic early so that the first tablet can be given as soon as possible. The second set of tablets will be given to you six hours after the first.

Travel Advice 

While we understand that you may want to get home quickly following the treatment, we advise that you stay overnight locally with friends or family if possible. This is because you can experience cramps and bleeding soon after taking the second medication and you may prefer not to be travelling at this time.

Abortion Aftercare

We'll give you comprehensive information about what to expect following the treatment and how to manage symptoms you may experience. We'll also provide you with sanitary protection and medication to relieve pain and sickness.

Treatment options and scans

To find out if you're able to have this treatment, you'll need to have a scan to confirm how many weeks pregnant you are. Scans can be carried out at Reproductive Choices in Dublin, Marie Stopes Belfast centre or one of centres in the UK. Find your most convenient Marie Stopes UK centre

It's important that you're aware that if you choose to have the scan at the centre and the pregnancy is found to be over nine weeks, you won't be able to have medical treatment and will be offered a surgical abortion. This is why we usually advice to book your appointment within one of our centres when possible.
