​​​​​Family Planning​

​Family Planning at UW Medicine takes place at the Women's Health Care Center at UWMC-Roosevelt.

At the Family Planning Clinic, director of family planning Dr. Sarah Prager and a team of health-care professionals provide individual care in a respectful, supportive, and friendly environment.

We offer comprehensive and expert family planning  services for women who seek birth control options, elective abortion, treatment for miscarriage or fetal demise, and for women who desire termination of pregnancy due to fetal anomalies or maternal health conditions. Additionally, our genetic counselors and social workers offer expert decision and process support.
