Health Before Pregnancy

Reproductive Life Planning

Did you know that over 50 percent of pregnancies are unplanned? 

Whether or not you plan to have a baby now, or in the future, a reproductive life plan can help everyone in their reproductive years to set personal goals and plan for the future. It will help you think about things that you can do now to improve your health, protect your fertility and improve the health of a future baby.

Create your reproductive life plan and address any concerns with your health care provider.
