BC Women’s CARE Program provides abortions up to 24 weeks gestational age. Although women do not require a doctor’s referral to obtain an abortion at CARE, we feel that women who have a supportive health care provider are able to access the services they need without undue delay.
If she requires an ultrasound prior to her abortion, you can help by requesting an ultrasound to be done in your community as soon as possible.
If you see your patient for a follow-up after she has had an abortion at CARE, please complete the CARE Program Follow-Up Form and fax to us at 604-875-3274. Your feedback will help us to continue providing excellent patient care.
POS can assist health care professionals and community workers throughout BC to help and support women in their communities who are facing an unintended or unplanned pregnancy.
POS can provide up-to-date information about available abortion services throughout British Columbia and in the United States.
POS staff members work collaboratively with health care providers and community workers to facilitate women’s access to safe abortion care.

Some health care providers want to know how they can help women access reproductive health services such as contraception and/or abortion closer to their homes. This may involve local advocacy or participating in further training to gain skills to offer these services.
