frequently asked questions
Do I need insurance to qualify for free medical services?
No, we do not require proof of insurance for medical services or other support services at Daybreak LifeCare Center.
If I'm in my first trimester, is a medical abortion an option?
The abortion pill can be taken up to 10-11 weeks after a woman's last known menstrual period. It is not an option with certain medical conditions or an ectopic pregnancy.
Is everything I share private and confidential?
We respect our patients' confidentially to the full extent of the law. If you are a minor, you do not have to have a parent present at your appointment. You matter. Your privacy matters.
What do I need to know before an abortion?
It is important for you to know how far along you are, if the pregnancy is viable, and whether or not you have an STI.
Do I have to make an appointment online?
If you need pregnancy confirmation, including a free ultrasound, you will need to make an appointment. We take walk-ins for free pregnancy tests, consultations, and free STI testing.
Do you offer free classes for parents?
We provide comprehensive support, education, and classes for our pregnant patients and new parents. Contact us to learn more about our parenting programs.
