Quality care for women since 1973


We are a private doctor's office that specializes in fetal anomalies.

abortion Clinic

Abortion clinic in Boulder, CO receiving referrals from across the country and internationally.

For over 40 years, Boulder Abortion Clinic has provided women from across the country with the highest quality abortion services. Our purpose is to provide the safest possible abortion care and terminations of pregnancies for fetal anomalies or other indications. Abortion care is always provided in a confidential, comfortable, and dignified outpatient setting for our patients.

We know this is a difficult decision for many women and families, and that it can be a stressful time for you. We will provide you with the help you need to come to the best choice for you. If you decide to have an abortion, our first concern is for your safety and well-being.

1st Trimester Abortion

First trimester abortion patients (up to 13 weeks) first have an ultrasound to confirm gestational age, then after counseling undergo a two-day outpatient surgical procedure using laminaria to minimize the need for cervical dilation.

2nd Trimester Abortion

Second trimester abortion patients (up to 27 weeks) also receive an ultrasound exam and counseling, then undergo a three to four day outpatient procedure.

3rd Trimester Abortion

Patients coming in for a later abortion (28 weeks and over) are often seeking services for termination of a desired pregnancy that has developed serious complications. We perform either a four-day procedure similar to our second-trimester approach, or in rare cases offer an induced fetal demise.

Fetal Indication

Our staff have extensive experience working with people who have recently discovered, late in a pregnancy, a catastrophic fetal anomaly or genetic disorder that may cause death, suffering, or serious disability for the baby that would be delivered if the pregnancy were to continue to term.

Patient Comments

I came in here not feeling too great about the whole thing, but the nurses made me feel, really think about and realize that this doesn’t make me bad because it’s the best thing and it’s my choice. They made me feel better about myself.

Patient Comment

It was a very emotional time for us and we are thankful to the wonderful staff. Your receptionist was the first person we talked to. Her positive and caring attitude was conveyed over the phone. Again thank you for allowing me to be able to make the choice.

Patient Comment

I put a great deal of thought in before coming. The staff here was understanding and willing to listen, making the procedure easier to go through. I’d call this a very positive experience. I also appreciated all the info I found on your web site. Learning more about the procedure and Dr. Hern calmed any residual fear/anxiety I had.

The facility was great in general, we felt safe, and everything was clean, soothing and the music in the waiting room was comforting.
