About

Postpartum contraceptive counseling varies widely in its provision; no standardized practice has been well-established by the literature. We intend to evaluate how directed postpartum contraceptive counseling to adolescents aged 14-19 affects key outcomes over time. Subjects will be randomized to receive either the standardized contraceptive counseling intervention or routine postpartum care. We will then assess the difference in repeat pregnancy rates between the two groups
