Post-natal family planning
With support from the National Department of Health, we have stationed our nursing officers in the Post-Natal Ward at 13 hospitals across Papua New Guinea.
This allows for women to take up contraceptive services immediately after their delivery, if they wish to space their children. Our family planning nurses also circulate to other hospital wards, such as the paediatric ward, antenatal cinics and special care nursery, to engage with women and provide them with information on high-quality and effective contraceptive options. This allows women with a variety of needs to consider the option for less or more children and the appropriate contraceptive options that will help them them more carefully plan their families.
