Can a friend or family member be with me?

We encourage you to have someone with you. They are welcome to stay with you in the waiting areas. If you choose to have moderate sedation during the procedure, you will need someone to drive you home. If you prefer, he or she can join you during your information session with our staff. We ask that you only bring one person with you. However, if you are unable to bring someone with you, local sedation can be administered during the procedure if you are 12 weeks or less from your last normal menstrual period and you can drive yourself home.
