As we continue our mission to directly respond to increasing nationwide roadblocks to accessible abortion care, carafem is proud to share that we’ve added Rhode Island to the growing number of US States that can access our medically supported at home abortion pill service. carafem’s by-mail abortion pill delivery coupled with private secure access to online health visits increases Rhode Islanders’ access to safe and affordable at-home abortion care.
“Telehealth services have quickly become instrumental in improving access to medical care in the U.S. Now, carafem is bringing that same option for those seeking abortion care, and we are thrilled to bring medically supported abortion pill by mail service to the people of Rhode Island,” says Melissa Grant, COO of carafem. “Now, people in Rhode Island can receive the reproductive health care services they need, on the timeline they want, in a place they feel most comfortable, and with a provider they trust.”
About the Abortion Pill
carafem’s medically supported at home abortion pill service is a safe option for most people seeking care and is available in the first 11 weeks of pregnancy. These medications have been safely used by millions of pregnant people across the US for over 20 years. Most often, this process involves taking a couple of medications over about 2 days. Working together these medications cause cramping and bleeding to empty the uterus. The cost of carafem’s abortion pill by mail service ranges from $250-375, and financial assistance may be available as a part of a discussion with your carafem care team.
Personalized and Medically Supported Abortion Care
A person seeking abortion services in Rhode Island can schedule a virtual appointment with a medical provider and receive abortion pills as soon as the next day. Along with the abortion pill medication, people who choose carafem will also receive options for medication to help with pain, nausea, and a birth control method at the time of care. Also included are some comfort care items to further make the process at home a little easier. carafem provides 24/7 personalized support from a trained care team throughout the process from the appointment until the final follow-up and will be with you every step of the way.
“There are many reasons a person may prefer a medically supported, at-home abortion,” Grant adds. “Visiting with a provider over secure video chat allows for greater privacy, support, and flexibility within the process of having an abortion, including the location, timing, and cost. Our hope is that carafem can provide people with options to receive care in the way that makes the most sense to them, allowing them to get answers without leaving the house or playing phone tag. Expanding options for access to reliable healthcare is critical so that people can receive affordable care where and when they need it.”
