Types of Abortion
(under 10 weeks pregnant)
A medication abortion is sometimes called a medical or chemical abortion and often referred to as simply the “abortion pill.” This is NOT the same as Plan B or the morning after pill.
(1st & 2nd Trimester*)
There are two different types of surgical abortions, depending on the length of pregnancy. *Abortion providers may differ on length of pregnancy and available options.
Getting Care – How It Works
Schedule a FREE Appointment
Our online scheduler allows patients to schedule their free, in-person medical appointment from the comfort of their phone or computer. Simply choose the available date and time that works best for you and follow the prompts to confirm your scheduled time slot.
Patients may also schedule an appointment for medical or resource-based services by calling or texting Sierra Pregnancy + Health at 916-624-8990.
In order to book your appointment, our staff will need basic information including your first and last name, date of birth, phone number, and type of appointment being requested.
Disclaimer: All patients must schedule their own appointment, unless there is a specific need for someone else to do so such as the need for a language interpreter, developmental advocate, or etc. If no special accommodations are required, Sierra Pregnancy + Health cannot schedule appointments for friends and family members of a patient.
Fill Out Required Paperwork
Once you arrive for your appointment at Sierra Pregnancy + Health, you will be given forms to complete about your medical history, including but not limited to, previous pregnancies, overall health, emotional health, and contact information. All information gathered is kept confidential and never released except upon the proper written authorization from a patient.
A copy of your state-issued identification card, driver’s license, or school ID will also be made and used ONLY for your medical file. If you do not have any form of picture identification, please let the staff know and accommodations will be made for you
All services are free and no insurance card or payment is needed for your appointment.
Meet with a Trained Advocate or Medical Professional
During the first portion of your 30-45 minute appointment, patients will meet with one of our highly trained patient advocate volunteers. These are individuals who are interested in getting to know you and skilled at assessing how our organization can best offer support and meet your needs. Patient advocate volunteers gather information about your situation and do not ask medical questions or give medical advice.
During the second portion of your 30-45 minute appointment, one of our qualified RNs or OBGYNs will collect a urine sample and perform your medical testing (pregnancy or STI). They will also ask you any relative medical questions and give proper advice and information based on your specific situation and needs.
