Patients with Special Needs
At Little Rock Family Planning Services we work closely with physicians, genetics counselors, social workers, and social service agencies in the community. Including, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, who have patients with special needs.
The decision to terminate a planned or wanted pregnancy due to a fetal anomaly or fetal demise can be difficult and heart wrenching.
Our experienced medical and support staff are committed to guiding women and families through this process. Many Arkansas Ob/Gyn physicians and genetic counselors have entrusted their patients with fetal abnormalities to us.
You must call (501) 225-3836 for an appointment. The State of Arkansas 72 Hour Waiting Period requires (2) visits prior to an in-clinic abortion procedure.
Please note, if you are between 18 and 21 weeks since your last menstrual period you will need to plan for (3) visits to our clinic.
Abnormalities / Fetal Indication up to 21 weeks
Our clinic is uniquely qualified to manage genetics and fetal abnormality cases. Often, these women have a desired and planned pregnancy. However, thru various laboratory and ultrasound testing, a severe abnormality in the fetus is discovered. Or the woman is found to have a medical condition that makes the pregnancy unusually hazardous.
Our onsite, state-of-the art, ultrasound allows for excellent technical support throughout the abortion procedure.
Partners are allowed to comfort patients while in the recovery and lounge areas throughout this difficult time.
This website www.aheartbreakingchoice.com is useful and helpful to some of our patients considering a pregnancy termination due to an abnormality of the fetus.
