Family Planning

Using family planning/ birth control is the best way to plan if/when you want to be pregnant. Today, long acting reversible contraception ( LARCs) are safe and super easy to use. Talk to your provider about this very effective option that has minimal side effects. The great thing is that all types of insurance (Medicaid and Commercial) should have coverage for all FDA approved birth control and without a co-pay. Planning your pregnancy is the best way to have a healthy baby.
