If you have any additional questions, we would be happy to answer them. Simply contact us and someone will be in touch as quickly as possible.
No matter your age, First Care Women’s Clinic will provide you with free and confidential services if you believe you may be pregnant. Even if you are under 18, you have the right to make an informed decision regarding your body, regardless of what your parents, family members or friends say.
Your appointment at First Care Women’s Clinic is free. You will not be required to pay for anything and do not need to show proof of insurance at any time during or after your appointment. The only thing you will need to bring with you is an ID. Our goal is to provide you with the resources and services you need at no cost to you.
Just like any doctor’s visit, your visit to First Care Women’s Clinic is completely confidential. Our licensed medical clinic is HIPAA compliant and dedicated to maintaining the privacy of your health information. We will not share your information with anyone, including your insurance company, your parents, significant other or school.
To make an appointment with us, you do not need parental consent. However, if you are indeed pregnant, it is important to tell your parents. Keep in mind that what you do with your pregnancy is your choice. That being said, having a strong support system, such as your parents, can help make your situation easier to handle. We can help facilitate those tough conversations and provide you with support if your parents are unable to do so.
If you have had unprotected sex or your form of birth control has failed, not only could you be pregnant, but you could also have an STD as well. You can contract an STD through any type of sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral contact. If you believe you might be pregnant, it’s important to get tested for STDs as well. Having an STD while pregnant could cause serious complications. Contact us today for a low cost screening and a free pregnancy test.
Getting an ultrasound allows our staff to see how far along you are in your pregnancy, detect fetal heartbeat and determine the location of the pregnancy. If your pregnancy is developing outside of the uterus, it is called an ectopic pregnancy and can be life threatening. No matter what you decide to do regarding your body, you will need an ultrasound. First Care Women’s Clinic can provide you with a free ultrasound when you make an appointment with us.
Depending on the procedure you choose, how far along you are in your pregnancy, and where you go, abortions can vary drastically in price. If you are considering abortion and have questions about the prices and procedures, make a free and confidential appointment at one of our locations in Palm Beach County today.
In order to make you feel as comfortable as possible, you are welcome to bring a friend, family member or significant other to your appointment. Due to HIPAA laws, however, there will be times during your appointment where they may be asked to step out of the room for a moment.
