Postpartum Contraception

Birth spacing can lead to better outcomes for both new parents and infants. Many patients want a contraceptive method to prevent pregnancy too soon after giving birth. As patients typically spend two or more days in the hospital after delivery, there are ample opportunities to provide them with contraception before they go home. With the recent changes in MassHealth billing regulations, patients have more options than ever, including immediate postpartum placement of IUDs and implants. Here you will find information related to patient counseling, consent, and the provision of contraception immediately after giving birth or before leaving the hospital.
