The family that you want
In the recent past, family planning in Laos often came in a cruel form, with high rates of both infant and maternal mortality. As health care and vaccinations have become more widely available, couples are eager for better information about their family-planning choices.
This guide, excerpted from the Hesperian Foundation's excellent book "Where Women Have No Doctor," explains the full range of choices, including birth control pills, implants, and injections; condom use; and natural methods. Illustrations and clear text provide information about the effectiveness, benefits and disadvantages of each.
