Here are your second-trimester pregnancy options explained:
Some of the greatest gifts in life aren’t planned. While parenting brings added life challenges, it’s also one of the most rewarding roles a person can take on. If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy but are worried you might not be ready to parent, it’s important to take time to learn about the help and resources available to you.
Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic is here to help make your transition to parenting as easy as possible. We provide free material assistance, free or low-cost housing referrals, parenting education, and more to help empower you and set you up for success as a parent!

If you’re considering abortion in your second trimester, you will not be eligible for a medical abortion (the abortion pill), as surgery is required to remove the pregnancy tissue. A surgical abortion procedure in the second trimester is called a dilation and evacuation (D&E).
In a D&E abortion, thecervix is dilated and the abortion provider will empty the woman’s uterus of the pregnancy tissue using a suctioning device and gynecological instruments.
Complications related to D&E abortions include:
– Injury to the uterus or cervix
– Uterine perforation
– Retained fetal tissue
– Blood clots
Before accessing an abortion, we recommend scheduling a free pre-abortion screening and ultrasound scan appointment to learn more information about potential abortion complications, what to expect during this procedure, and to learn about the pregnancy options available to you!
Though Mosaic does not provide the abortion procedure at our clinic, we provide all of our pregnancy and options education services (including our pre-abortion screening) at no cost to you! Schedule your free appointment today!
Some women don’t feel ready to parent but aren’t comfortable with abortion — if that’s you, adoption may be a great option for you to consider!
Today, adoptions can be a very empowering option for the birth mother, as she is able to determine what kind of family she wants her child to be placed with and what kind of post-birth relationship she would like with the child and the adoptive family, if any.
With the help of one of our trusted adoption agency partners, you’ll be given the help and information you need to create an adoption plan that works for you and find a home of your choosing for your child.
Contact Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic today to learn more about adoption or to start your adoption plan today!
