Family Planning Services

Jefferson Family Planning Services provides compassionate care to patients experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, the loss of pregnancy or those seeking prevention. 

Our office provides education, access to counseling about contraceptive options, counseling to prevent unplanned pregnancies and medical services for all instances. We work in partnership with the division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and Genetics to manage pregnancies with diagnosed fetal complications and serious medical conditions.

We provide a range of options for the management of pregnancy loss or miscarriage as well as specialize in complex contraception for women with medical conditions.

We are committed to training the next generation of obstetricians and gynecologists to understand the value of offering all reproductive health care options to patients. We are determined to keep these options available to all patients.
