Family Planning Services

The decision to start or continue a family is significant. Planning can help prevent unintended pregnancy, space pregnancies as desired, and helps maximize positive sexual health. According to research, approximately 45% of pregnancies in America each year are unintended. This means, children were not desired, or the pregnancy occurs sooner than anticipated. Unwanted pregnancies can result in decreased interest in breastfeeding, increased risk of postpartum depression, and inconsistent prenatal care.

Family planning helps reduce the risk of birth defects by recommending the proper diet and supplements. A lack of family planning can result in mental and physical ailments and deformities.
