Sexual health and reproductive rights

Practitioners working with parents who have experienced recurrent care proceedings report that parents can lack information and advice about sexual health and contraception. There is also a considerable debate around the ethics of promoting particular forms of contraception or making the taking of contraception a condition of the delivery of a service. Among the range of services for parents who have experienced recurrent care proceedings, Pause is the only one to make delivery of the service conditional on taking contraception. Most other services, unless working with women in pregnancy, do encourage the use of contraception and support parents to access local services.
