Ask the Expert: Reproductive Life Planning: Setting Goals for a Healthy Family

April 28, 2015

The CDC has recommended that everyone, both female and male, develop a Reproductive Life Plan. In this webinar, we will discuss what that means for participants in Healthy Start programs and, in particular, how it applies to contraception and preconception/interconception care. The benefits of reproductive life planning on maternal and infant health, as well as every woman’s hopes and dreams, will be emphasized.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe what is meant by a Reproductive Life Plan
  • Discuss the role of Contraception, Preconception Care, and Interconception Care in a Reproductive Life Plan
  • Identify benefits of Reproductive Life Planning
