With the last abortion provider in Nashville pausing their abortion care last fall, we wanted to act as quickly as possible to help people in the Nashville area get the abortion care they need. We’ve already seen an increase in clients from Tennessee traveling to our Atlanta, Georgia location, and wanted to provide a more convenient solution for these clients.
In light of this, carafem announced the opening of a new office in Mt. Juliet (just east of Nashville) to provide abortion care up to 11 weeks with the abortion pill. We will also offer birth control options, such as Depo Provera shots, birth control pills, condoms, IUDs, implants, and emergency contraception.
Serving More in the South.
When researching locations to open a health center, carafem has always found the Midwest and the South to be two areas that greatly lack access to abortion and reproductive healthcare. And from our work in Georgia, we know many people have to travel great distances to receive reproductive health care. With that in mind, one of the reasons carafem picked the Nashville area is due to the extremely limited number of providers and its proximity to Kentucky, where there is only one abortion care provider in the whole state. One of the main goals of carafem is to increase access to compassionate and convenient abortion care and with the news of clinics closing or suspending abortion care services, it was clear that the Nashville area was in need.
Abortion Care in Tennessee
Our new office will provide early abortion care up to 11 weeks with the abortion pill. The center will also offer a selection of birth control options — such as Depo Provera shots, birth control pills, condoms, IUDs, implants, and emergency contraception.
In the following months, carafem will expand services to include the carafem procedure and STI testing and treatment.
Focus on Clients
We will continue to prioritize our clients and the experience that carafem is known for. Things like a focus on the individual needs of each and every client, and a bold and unapologetic voice when providing accurate information about abortion care. To help with the need for privacy, which has been shared by our clients, we schedule one person at a time and strive to ensure you won’t see other people during your visit. Individual appointments provide the most comfortable, positive, and private visit possible. We’re also proud to offer:
- Appointments that average 60 minutes or less
- Flexible appointment times including evenings and weekends
- Scheduling one client at a time to ensure individual attention and care
- Greater privacy of a small office located within a larger medical complex
