FETAL & MATERNAL
Supporting you through a difficult time
Some may need to terminate a pregnancy due to a fetal or maternal condition and we are here to help.
We've earned the trust of maternal-fetal medicine specialists, obstetricians, midwives, genetic counselors, and other health care providers who regularly refer their patients facing fetal or maternal conditions to us.
Unfortunately 3-5% of all pregnancies result in an abnormality. These can vary in severity, and may present many patients with a difficult decision about continuing the pregnancy. We specialize in providing care in these heartbreaking circumstances.
We can work with your health care provider to facilitate further testing. We can also facilitate funeral services and often can provide foot or hand prints as keepsakes if desired.
For some, continuing a pregnancy can be detrimental to their physical or emotional health. In these cases, terminating the pregnancy may be the best course of action. We understand that this is one step on your path to healing, and we are here to take care of you during this difficult time.
Pain-Free Procedures/Sedation Options
Our certified registered nurse anesthetists are able to provide you with a variety of levels of sedation to meet your comfort needs, regardless of which procedure you will be having. Our goal is to provide you with a PAIN-FREE procedure. Most of our patients report that they feel no discomfort during any of the procedures. Learn more about these options.
Post-Procedure Support & Resources
We have a group of excellent referral resources for those needing additional support after an abortion.
You may also want to visit "A Heartbreaking Choice," a private, members-only support group where those who have undergone a pregnancy termination due to a poor prenatal diagnosis, problems with their own health, or for the health of another fetus can discuss their loss and get support.
All of us at the Lilith Clinic in Portland are here for you if you need to access abortion care, no matter the reason.
