Whole Woman's Health of Charlottesville

Whole Woman's Health of Charlottesville is honored to carry forward the care provided by Dr. Fitzhugh at the former Charlottesville Medical Center for Women. We provide abortion care services up to (11.6 weeks) 13.6 weeks LMP of pregnancy. We are a patient-centered women's abortion clinic and healthcare practice, where our focus is on the whole woman: her mind, her heart, and her body. We believe all healthcare, especially women's health and abortion services, can better serve our community with a holistic approach. We explain medical procedures and share their results, and we pay attention to how our patients feel. We have all been patients before, and we understand the fear and the anxiety that is often experienced in medical settings.

Whole Woman's Health of Charlottesville offers comprehensive women's health services, including:

  • Abortion care, including abortion pill up to 8 weeks (10 weeks LMP), surgical abortion care up to 11.6 weeks (13.6 weeks LMP)
  • Therapeutic abortion appointments, for women with special needs
  • Individual and family counseling services for pregnancy options

We believe that compassionate, personal, safe abortion care is a vital part of healthcare for women. We specialize in this unique area of medicine and possess a remarkable level of expertise. Our Whole Woman's Health clinics lead the nation in abortion care for your body, your mind and your heart. Our Individualized Services include:

We understand this can be a challenging time for you. We pride ourselves in making our abortion care services among the most affordable in the area. We will respect your needs and work to make you comfortable during your time with us. We understand that an abortion decision requires time, thought, and trust. An unplanned pregnancy often provokes an intense examination of our life and our values. A planned pregnancy that is no longer possible, or is medically challenged, can be heartbreaking. Our trained counseling team allows you the space to explore your feelings and get you the support you need to move forward. We honor and respect the complexity of every woman's life and every pregnancy decision. Call us with any questions or to make an appointment for any service, or to simply talk about your situation. Our warm staff will gather your information, thoroughly answer your questions, and explain your options.

Additional forms for minors (under age 18) seeking an abortion

In Virginia, state law requires a parent consent to an abortion procedure for their child, if the child is under 18. The parent/guardian must be notified by Whole Woman's Health by telephone or in-person 24 hours before, or in writing 72 hours before, the abortion.

The form below must be signed by the parent and child, and the parent's signature must be notarized by a notary public. We offer a notary public at our clinic free of charge, for parents who wish to sign the consent here on the day of the abortion.

Parental Consent - English

Exceptions:

  • Minor declares that she is abused or neglected, and the physician has reason to suspect such neglect/abuse and reports it.
  • Patient is an emancipated minor (emancipated can be because she is married, even if no longer married; active military duty; willingly living separately from parents, with their consent; and/or has an order of emancipation).
  • Judicial Bypass: hearing must occur within 4 business days; Judge should authorize the abortion if the minor is mature and able to make decision, or if the abortion is deemed to be in the minor's best interest. Judge may, or may not, waive parental notification depending on circumstances.
