These prices are approximate figures for Queensland clinics only and may change at any time. For current prices contact the clinics or Children by Choice. Interstate prices vary significantly, so please call your closest clinic for up-to-date costs.
Prices start to rise at most clinics once the pregnancy reaches 11 weeks gestation, with steep increases from 14 weeks onwards. For this reason it's vital to recognise that abortion is a time-sensitive decision.
If you need help in sourcing financial assistance in order to access an abortion, please contact us. While we cannot provide funds ourselves, we can help you work through your circumstances and look at some possible sources of assistance with you. You may also qualify for a No Interest Loan with us which may help in affording a procedure.

These prices are for Medicare Card holders only, as they include the Medicare rebate. Prices for non-Medicare Card holders will be much higher - often around double the Medicare Card holder cost.
It is important to contact the clinics or Children by Choice for accurate costs, especially after 11 weeks as prices can increase steeply.
Some clinics provide termination of pregnancy after 16 weeks at the doctor's discretion and prices will be higher. A termination between 18 and 20 weeks gestation can cost over $3000 for Medicare Card holders.

Other concessions may be possible at some clinics for various circumstances. Enquire with Children by Choice for more information.
