Resources for professionals

Public Health England (PHE) have produced a Child Accident Prevention Guide for working with the under fives.


This guideline covers contraceptive services for under-25s. It aims to ensure all under-25s are given advice and information on all types of contraception. This includes additional tailored support to meet the particular needs and choices of those who are socially disadvantaged or who may find it difficult to use these services.

Mothers can start using contraception as soon as they’re ready following the birth of their baby, including while breastfeeding. For more information on the contraception available while breastfeeding and beyond, see below. Mothers can speak to their GP, Midwife or Health Visitor.
