Midwifery clinics offer advice on contraception and can also prescribe contraceptives. If you are already using contraceptives, bring your pack or written information to the clinic and the midwife will write you a prescription for the relevant product. The midwife can insert an IUD or a contraceptive implant if needed. You can also get emergency contraception. Condoms can be purchased at pharmacies and supermarkets.
Sexually transmitted diseases
The midwifery clinic also offers tests for sexually transmitted diseases.
A midwifery clinic will provide a pregnancy test and regular check-ups during your pregnancy. The clinic will also help you plan for the birth and the period immediately after the birth.
If you are pregnant and thinking of terminating your pregnancy, the clinic can help you with counselling and referrals if needed. You can decide whether you want to have an abortion up to week 18 of your pregnancy. If you are under 18, it is still your decision as to whether or not to have an abortion.
