Birth Control & Family Planning

Every woman should have the support of her doctor to create a Reproductive Life Plan about when she wants to become pregnant and have (or not have) children. Every woman should have the support of her doctor for preconception (before you get pregnant) care. Healthy Babies start with Healthy Mamas.
