SKOKIE, Ill., Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Through an unwavering commitment to the reproductive healthcare needs of women in the U.S., carafem has expanded their reach to the Northern Chicago area – marking the launch of their third clinic. The Skokie location was strategically chosen to serve those needing care on the North Side of Chicago, as well as for its proximity to bordering states with limited access to abortion care options.
"We are grateful to have been able to serve people from Atlanta, GA, Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas since 2014. We are extremely proud to announce that we will now be able to increase access to meet the reproductive needs of new communities," says Melissa Grant, COO of carafem. "Not only will we be able to serve those in the greater Chicago area, but we hope to make access a little easier for women traveling from places like Wisconsin and Iowa."
The Skokie health center will provide early abortion care up to 13 weeks with the abortion pill and the carafem procedure. The center will also offer STI testing and a wide selection of birth control options — such as IUDs, birth control implants, Depo Provera shots, birth control pills, and emergency contraception.
carafem is known for its modern experience, a focus on the individual needs of each client, and a bold and unapologetic voice when providing accurate information about abortion care. To help with some of the need for privacy expressed by our clients, carafem schedules one person at a time and strives to ensure clients won't see other visitors while in the office. Individual appointments provide the most comfortable, positive, and private visit possible. carafem also offers:
- Appointments that average 60 minutes or less
- 24/7 online scheduling
- Greater privacy of a small office located within a larger medical complex
"We greatly appreciate the feedback and encouraging words from supporters and clients, and we look forward to continuing to expand access to safe and convenient reproductive health care options for those in the Midwest," adds Grant.
