Health Care System Factors for Birth Rates

Health Care System Factors

Family planning services are available in Utah from several sources: community health centers and private providers, Title X clinics (Planned Parenthood Association of Utah), and city and county health departments. Utah law requires parental consent for unmarried minors to obtain contraception information and services from local health departments in Utah. One key question is a pregnancy prevention screening where primary care providers ask all women of childbearing age, "Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?" Based on her answer, "yes", "no", "I'm okay either way", or "I don't know", providers give preconception counseling or contraception counseling.
