How much does an abortion cost?

If you do not qualify for an abortion where you live, you may be considering travelling to England to access safe, caring and legal abortion services.

We know that women in Ireland face additional expense to travel which is why we offer a discounted fee.

Marie Stopes UK will no longer be charging women from Northern Ireland who travel to England for consultation or treatment. Find out more here.

When will I need to pay?

Before your treatment:

  • If you have booked a medical pre-assessment over the phone, you will need to pay for the assessment fee only before we call you back to conduct the assessment
  • If you’re having a face to face pre-assessment or scan and treatment altogether in England, then the overall treatment price will be payable when you arrive at a Marie Stopes UK centre
  • If you have a face-to-face pregnancy counselling appointment at one of the organisation mentioned above, you don’t have to pay for a pre-assessment

If someone is paying on your behalf by credit card or debit card, the cardholder must accompany you to the centre at the time the payment is made.
