Mile High Women’s Clinic is a full-service abortion clinic, staffed by board-certified gynecologists, some of whom have been working in the field for nearly 40 years. The staff includes both male and female physicians, all of whom are committed to the comfort and respect of every patient. They’re here to help you with anything, from delivery to menopause to surgical or medical abortions. There are no legal restrictions limiting abortion services in Colorado, so Mile High doesn’t only treat locals; they often provide care for patients traveling from states with restrictions.
Mile High offers in-office abortions for patients up to 16-weeks gestation. After that, the procedure would be relocated to a hospital setting. Your physician from Mile High can accompany you and care for you there, at your request. If you’re looking to schedule an appointment for an abortion, or to hear more information on the process, the team at Mile High treats these requests as emergency appointments. Your appointment will be schedule within 48 hours.
Patients at less than 10-weeks gestation will be able to choose between a medical abortion (the “Abortion Pill”) or a surgical abortion. The medical abortion involves little more than a pill taken at home. A post-op visit will be scheduled for two weeks after, consisting of an ultrasound and a brief exam. For patients over 10-weeks gestation, or for those who would prefer surgical abortion, that procedure involves an hour-long appointment, scheduled at your earliest convenience.
Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. We have a Freedom Fund to help self-paying patients afford care when they need it most. Generally, we can give patients who need it $125 toward the cost of their procedure. Contact our staff with any questions and to see if you qualify.
The National Abortion Federation hotline is available for any questions including financial assistance, weekdays: 7:00 A.M.-11:00 P.M., Saturdays and Sundays: 9:00 A.M.- 5:00 P.M EST. Call toll-free 1-800-772-9100
There are no legal restrictions on abortion services in the state of Colorado. The team at Mile High Women’s Clinic has been providing safe, affordable abortion services for decades. This includes patients who might need to travel from out of state, where these services are more restricted.
Mile High Women’s Clinic offers both medical and surgical abortions, depending on the length of gestation. Medical abortions (in the form of a pill) are available for up to 10-weeks gestation. After that, an in-office surgical abortion would need to be done. The name “surgical” can be misleading, as the procedure is minimally-invasive and takes only a few minutes. It’s a low-pain procedure and the patient will not be put under.
After 16-weeks, the procedure will need to be done in a hospital setting. It’s an equally routine procedure, and your OB-GYN from Mile High will still be the one providing your care. The new location is purely a precaution.
Patients under 18 will need parental consent. However, if you have questions or need legal advice, Mile High will refer you to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has access to pro-bono attorneys who can help you with any legal questions you might have.
Both medical and surgical abortions are very safe procedures that have been perfected over the past 30 years. Abortion is actually considered one of the safest surgical procedures of them all, when performed by a skilled physician. The doctors at Mile High Women’s Clinic have more than 30 years of experience providing safe abortions to patients in a private, comfortable office setting. The goal of every doctor at Mile High is to provide the best possible medical care and to protect your future fertility. Complications from abortions are very rare, in general, and the complication rate for abortions at Mile High is even lower than their colonoscopies. Potential risks are discussed below, and can be discussed in more detail with your physician, at your request.
