The Vermont Department of Health wants to support planned and healthy pregnancies by strengthening the family planning system in Vermont.
Family planning helps prevent unplanned pregnancy or achieve intended pregnancy. Family planning empowers people to choose if they want children or not, and the number and spacing of children if they chose to have them. Family planning helps improve health outcomes for infants, children and families.
Pregnancy: Before, During and After
The Division of Maternal and Child Health wants to improve health and well-being before, during and after pregnancy. This is done by encouraging healthy behaviors before becoming pregnant, giving people information and resources to stay healthy during pregnancy, and making sure people have access to support after pregnancy.
