Last August 29- September 1, 2017, the Department of Health Region III office conducted a 4 days training on Post- Partum IUD insertion at Dr. PJGMRMC Cabanatuan, City. This activity primarily aims to capacitate health service providers in delivering high quality PPIUD service as part of comprehensive Post-Partum Family Planning (PPFP) program as an effective means in addressing  women with unmet need.

          Many post-partum are not aware of their risk for pregnancy week after delivery. Though they want to either space or limit subsequent births and would like to use contraception, mothers are often busy taking care of their new babies and their families. Some may not be sure what method to use and where to avail of Family Planning (FP) services. Some may have the misconception that the onset of fertility and pregnancy is delayed so that access to FP services, likewise, becomes delayed and resulted to unexpected/ unwanted pregnancy.
