Hear What Clients Have to Say About Cara

After their appointment with carafem, these clients shared how they appreciated Cara’s support while they took the abortion pill as well as during their follow-up.

“I know if I visit Carafem again, I look forward to using the chatbot again. And I kind of look forward to it in the future like, you know, with my other doctors. Like I’m going to be expecting that chatbot. I think Cara started a trend that I’m going to be looking forward to from all doctors.”

“The timing, her timing was very good because when I thought, you know, I was alone, I wasn’t. All the times when I felt alone, I wasn’t because Cara was right there [and would] like just surprisingly come through and check on me.”

“I know I woke up to a message, and I was surprised. Yes, I did, I know I woke up Sunday and Cara asked me, did you finish the procedure yet? Let me know. And I was all surprised, I forgot that Cara was supposed to text me…my best friend didn’t text me yet.”
