Family Planning Services
We offer family planning services to help meet the unique health care needs of women. These services include: pregnancy testing, contraception counseling, and abortion services.
Low income women can now receive financial assistance for abortion. Call our office and ask one of our phone counselors for more information.
Our commitment is to provide gentle, confidential health care for women in a safe and pleasant environment. It is our conviction to respect a woman's reproductive choices specifically regarding a woman's right to control her fertility. Our reputation is widespread in the care of first time GYN patients.
Jackson Women's Health Organization (JWHO) is a State-licensed Abortion Facility which specializes in reproductive health care including emotionally supportive abortion care. Our staff follows the strictest confidentiality guidelines to insure the privacy of our patients.
JWHO maintains a friendly atmosphere with patient care monitored at a high professional level. Our physicians performing abortions are licensed medical doctors with specialized expertise in abortion medicine. They are assisted by licensed nurses, laboratory technicians, and trained counselors. JWHO complies with State regulations and local medical standards.
Call us in advance to make an appointment. By Mississippi State law, State mandated information has to be given in person at least 24 hours prior to the abortion procedure. At this time, our phone counselors are available Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm CST, and Saturdays from 9am to 12pm CST. Please bring any special problems to the attention of the phone counselor. If the appointment has to be canceled for any reason, please let us know at least a day in advance. Patients not counseled at least 24 hours in advance will be rescheduled in order to meet State requirements. Therefore, it is extremely important to be on time for all appointments. Lab work, ultrasounds, and pre-op counseling will be performed 24 hours prior to the abortion. Phone hours are subject to change.
Eligibility for our procedures is up to the physician performing the abortion. Patients traveling great distances should have their pregnancy confirmed before making an appointment.
