Birth Resources

I have been collaborating with Sheila Ramgopal at Allegheny Reproductive Health Center and with Sara Ginsburg to compile and share information on health plans, programs and resources related to birth control, abortion, sexual health care, birth and care of young children, trans health care and gyne care. Our focus is on people with low incomes.

Information on if/how immigrants and refugees can access care in these areas to follow soon!

Note: these are guides with information that can change. We’ll keep them updated as best we can.

This information is difficult to get. Too difficult. Hopefully these spreadsheets will support you and/or your loved ones in making the choices that are best for you and for them. Choices are awesome.
