​Immediate Postpartum Long-Acting Reversible Contraception

The Immediate Postpartum Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (IPP LARC) toolkit was created through the collaboration of the Maryland Department of Health and Obstetrician/Gynecologists at Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital.  The purpose of the toolkit is to provide guidance for the provision of IPP LARC in Maryland hospitals. This document and associated materials address considerations for integration of IPP LARC into existing workflows and protocols. The toolkit aims to provide hospitals with technical assistance as they integrate IPP LARC into routine practice. This toolkit is not to be considered medical advice about contraceptive choices or use. Individuals who have questions should seek guidance from their gynecologist or primary care provider.

For other questions regarding the IPP LARC program, please send an email to mdh.mchb@maryland.gov.  Please type 'LARC' in the subject line.
