Preparing For The Future
What Is Family Planning?
Family planning provides ways for couples to have the number of children they want, when they want to have them. We do this by helping women who are struggling to get pregnant through infertility treatments. We also work with families to space out or limit their pregnancies through contraception. Spacing out and limiting pregnancies has a significant impact on a woman’s health and wellbeing. Spacing out pregnancies can also have a positive result on the pregnancy itself.
Our family planning services are here to support any woman with her sexual and reproductive health. Our specialists provide you with advice and guidance on all of the options available to you to space out your pregnancies, which have proven to be essential not only to the overall health of the mother but for that of the children as well.
Serving Women & Families
Our family planning clinic also assists with high-risk pregnancies. There are women who are at a higher risk of developing health issues from pregnancy. Some women are also more likely to experience preterm labor. Women who must prevent pregnancies due to an immediate critical health risk can also benefit from family planning services, so that they can ensure their own health.
Evidence proves that women who have more than four children are at a greater risk of heart failure because of additional pregnancies. Furthermore, women whose pregnancies are not spaced out sufficiently can also develop serious health problems. These are just a few topics addressed in our family planning services. We want women to be able to make an informed decision about the future of their families.
