Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. Please note that we will not be offering phone appointments over the Easter Weekend (10-13 April). 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) until the end of April. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Update: 19 March 2020 

Abortion legislation update

The Abortion Legislation Bill had its Third Reading yesterday and was voted through. It will now be prepared for Royal assent (Governor-General signing). The Act comes into force the day after Royal assent. This usually happens within one week.

This legislative amendment updates the primary legislation for abortion, set out in the Contraception, Sterilisation, and Abortion Act 1977 and the Crimes Act 1961.  The legislation is available on the New Zealand Parliament website.  This page will be updated when the bill becomes law. 

An early medical abortion service is available at our Tauranga Clinic.

Our service for early medical abortion is for those eligible for Aotearoa New Zealand health services who live within the Bay of Plenty District Health Board and Lakes District Health Board areas.

We believe in the right to safe and legal abortion, without unnecessary barriers.

We provide an abortion referral service at all our clinics. 

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
