One thing we keep hearing from a lot of people is how helpful and reassuring it can be to see inside a health center that provides abortion care. We’re all about putting people’s minds at ease and eliminating abortion stigma, so now that you’ve seen our health centers in Atlanta, D.C., and the Chicago metro area, we’re pleased to open the doors to our Nashville area center!
At carafem, we aim to create an experience that puts your needs first by offering the best client-centered health care possible – all in beautiful and comfortable offices with plenty of parking. From the moment you reach out to us, the difference is clear. We provide services that fit into your busy life. You can schedule an appointment, renew a prescription, or contact your clinician all from your smartphone in just a few taps. There is a lot of misinformation about what an abortion clinic actually looks like, so we’re taking you on a virtual tour of all our health centers.
Welcome to our health center in Mt. Juliet, which is a city just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. This office is located on the second floor of a medical building, which gives our clients more privacy. We’re centrally located off I-40 and Mt. Juliet Rd. and we’re less than three miles from the Mt. Juliet Commuter Rail station. When you arrive at our office, there is ample free parking outside the front and back of the building. You’ll find a small doorbell at the entrance to our suite to alert our staff that you have arrived.
This location opened in February 2019 in response to the last abortion provider in Nashville pausing their abortion services. Increasing access to compassionate and convenient abortion care is part of carafem’s mission so we acted as quickly as possible to help people in the Nashville area get the abortion care they need.
What does the inside of an abortion clinic look like?
Say hello to our reception area! Our friendly staff will welcome you to our office with one-on-one attention to your needs. You won’t be here for long as there’s virtually no waiting — appointments typically start within 5 minutes of your arrival.
Let’s head down the hall and check out one of our private offices. Much of the testing and preliminary work is carried out in one room as our staff comes to you. This way you can relax and focus on listening and asking questions. We welcome supportive friends or family members to join you if you like.
Time to check out one of our private consultation rooms! By the way, you’ll notice there isn’t a lot of medical equipment sitting out during your visit. We only bring the supplies we need for you personally so our rooms are quiet, clean, and uncluttered to help you to focus on getting the information you need without the anxiety of an overly medicalized office.
Our offices are designed with all of our client’s senses in mind. Many of our clients enjoy a cup of herbal tea or juice while learning about their health care options in these private and relaxed settings.
We create a comforting but professional vibe, without a lot of clinical sights, smells, or sounds. Our clinicians are experts in reproductive health care and will be sure to provide you with accurate, unbiased information one-on-one. No matter the reason for your visit, from seeking a new method of birth control to abortion care, you will feel respected and well-informed.
We know how much your voice matters as your words can provide support, comfort, and peace of mind to others who come after you – which is why client feedback is one of our favorite ways to improve the service we provide. We share comments from the people we serve with our staff so that our team can learn and improve.
These handwritten survey cards are also displayed in our office to let you know that when you are here, you are not alone.
We encourage you to actively participate in making decisions about your health care during your visit. Everyone deserves medical care that respects their unique values, preferences, and needs. And at carafem – yeah, we do that.
