What’s the free postpartum contraceptive option for women? It’s called the Lactational Amenorrhea Method (LAM). I have written about the pros and cons of LAM before, so this time I want to highlight a comprehensive article on LAM (PDF) offered for free by USAID Global Health eLearning Center and the ACCESS Family Planning Initiative.The informative four-page brief is designed to help health care professionals offer LAM guidance in their maternal, child, and family health care practices, but it would be helpful for any woman who wishes to practice LAM. I like how the article uses LAM as a springboard to discuss exclusive breastfeeding, family planning, child spacing, a return to fertility, and transitioning to other appropriate contraceptive options.
