Pregnancy and Before
Reproductive health focuses on the years prior to conception as well as pregnancy and the early postpartum period. Understanding local reproductive health data can assist in planning for the supports women and their families need during this time. Reproductive health information can also contribute to improved local decision making and the establishment of healthy practices and policies for parents and infants.
For more information on pregnancy and related support programs, please visit the health unit's website on pregnancy.
