Planning for Children: Helping Couples Get on the Same Page About If or When to Have More Children

Planning for Children

Unexpectedly bringing a new child into the family presents a serious challenge to low-income couples who are trying to attain family and economic stability. Even so, few, if any, healthy relationship or marriage education programs include a focus on pregnancy planning and prevention. Planning for Children: Helping Couples Get on the Same Page about If or When to Have More Children was created to fill that void and provide a much needed supplement to comprehensive relationship and/or marriage education programs.
