The Health Service Executive (HSE) has launched a website with information on abortion services in Ireland.
It comes after President Michael D Higgins signed the legislation to allow for abortion services in Ireland into law on Thursday.
While the Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) says it is to offer abortion services here from January 7th next year.
The myoptions.ie section of the HSE website details information on a freephone line, which will be open from January 1st.

It says: "My Options is a HSE freephone line that provides free and confidential information and counselling to people experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
"Unplanned pregnancy counselling can support you to cope with your unplanned pregnancy. It can help to talk to someone who can help support you to find the answers to your questions."
On abortion services, it says: "An abortion is available for free through the HSE if you live in the Republic of Ireland.
"If you live outside the Republic of Ireland, you can have an abortion in the Republic of Ireland. But you will have to pay for it."
It says abortions can be performed either by taking medication or having a minor surgical procedure.
The advice adds: "You can have an abortion if your pregnancy is no more than 12 weeks. 12 weeks of pregnancy means 84 days since the first day of your last period.
"After 12 weeks, you can only have an abortion in certain circumstances.
"The earlier an abortion is carried out, the simpler and safer it will be."
However it reminds people of the three day waiting period.
"You can have an abortion up to 12 weeks (84 days) of pregnancy. But you need to begin the process earlier than that.
"This is so a GP or doctor can certify that you are no more than 12 weeks pregnant. There must be at least three days between being certified and having the abortion procedure. This is the law."
The website also gives information on post-abortion services, and possible complications and risks involved.
