About Us

Our name pays tribute to the juniper berry, an abortifacient and contraceptive that has been used by traditional midwives and healers to end pregnancies. We are excited to be able to provide medication abortion care at home that is safe, confidential, convenient & affordable. We currently serve patients who live in New York, New Jersey, and New Mexico and look forward to expanding our services!
