A Guide for Developing Family Planning Messages for Women in the First Year Postpartum

This guide was written to help program managers create postpartum family planning (PPFP) messages to be used in family planning, maternal, newborn, child and other health programs. The guide includes eight key PPFP behaviors for postpartum women, their families and communities to prevent unplanned pregnancies during the first year after a birth. The content is based on findings from PPFP research; discussions with PPFP experts, program managers and workers; and field experiences from country programs. The guide is designed to help to ensure that the content of messages is correct and consistent.
