Plan Your Family

Want to wait to get pregnant? There are options.

Over HALF of all pregnancies in the US are unplanned. By the time a woman knows she is pregnant, it is often too late to change many of the things that lead to preterm birth, low birth weight, or birth defects.

If you do NOT want to become pregnant, make sure you are taking the right steps to prevent pregnancy.

It is healthiest for you AND your next baby to wait at least 18 weeks to 2 years to get pregnant after having a baby.

We can help!

The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County has 3 Family Planning Clinics which can provide birth control for FREE or at a low-cost. A Family Planning Nurse will review your options and help you get the right birth control for YOU.
