New Training Course for Providers on Postpartum Family Planning....
ACCESS-FP is pleased to announce the publication of a global package on "Comprehensive Postpartum Family Planning Care." Globally, between 90 and 95% of postpartum women would like to prevent having another baby in the next two years. This is a new training package that addresses the need for family planning during the extended postpartum period.
The package is a three-day training designed to be complimentary to other MNH packages. The package contains counseling checklists, role plays, and case studies for interactive training sessions. These sessions give providers the necessary information to provide clients with the understanding of the lactational amenorrhea method, transition to other methods, return to fertility, and the health benefits of waiting at least two years after the birth of their last baby before trying to conceive again.
Topics covered in the package include:
* Overview of postpartum/postnatal care
* Unmet need for postpartum family planning
* Family planning counseling for postpartum women
* Return to fertility
* Medical Eligibility Criteria updates
* Lactational Amenorrhea Method
* Methods compatible with breastfeeding
* Hormonal methods
* Non-hormonal methods
* Emergency contraception
* Managing side effects
* Infection prevention
* USAID policies on family planning
* Job aids
* Client materials
The global package is available in electronic format on the website:
We also have a limited number of CDs of the package available. Please
