You will be seen for an initial consultation and counselling by Mr Michael Stafford at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road, Chelsea, where you will have a scan, an infection screen and blood tests.
The MVA pregnancy termination requires a two hour admission to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. You will be given a local anaesthetic for the procedure. MVA takes approximately 10 minutes, however you may be required to remain at the hospital for up to an hour afterwards. Patients can experience some discomfort, similar to heavy period pains however they don’t tend to last long.
A full explanation of the effects of the procedure will be given and Mr Stafford will be readily available for advice before and after the procedure.
The fee for the procedure is tailored to an individual's needs and a package price can be arranged if requested. A follow-up visit is included in the price.

“ When I found that I was unexpectedly pregnant, I wanted a someone to talk to who would be sympathetic and unbaised and who would go through all my options in detail. This is exactly what I found with the team at 132 Healthwise. Although it was a very difficult time, the sensivitiy and understanding of the team was remarkable. I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in my situation. ”

"I panicked when I discovered that I was five weeks pregnant. It was a total shock and I wanted to deal wih the problem urgently. I knew that I didn't want to keep the pregnancy, for a vareity of reasons, but I didn't know how to deal with it. Rather than waiting for an NHS appointment, a friend recommended I rang 132 Healthwise. From the first phone call I was put at ease. I was given an appointment the next day, when I had a scan and saw the consultant. I had many questions, all of which were dealt with in detail and with sympathy. I made the decision to go ahead with a medical abortion, which was very straightforward. I had the consultants personal phone number, so I could ring him at any time, if I had worries or further questions. Nobody wants to be in this situation, but the staff at 132 Healthwise made it as trouble free as possible."
