Women giving birth in low-income countries often endure abuse
Researchers recently found that more than 40% of women experience physical or verbal abuse, stigmatization, or discrimination related to race or ethnicity during delivery? According to a recent report in The Lancet, this is not just an issue in low-resource settings. Dr. Taraneh Shirazian weighed in on this discussion.
Glamour: "There are several factors that go into choosing the best birth control—your reproductive plans, your feelings about hormones, your experience with cramps. All methods have their pros, but when it comes to the most effective type of birth control, there’s a clear winner: long-acting reversible contraceptives (or LARCs)."
Dr. Shirazian, founder of Saving Mothers and a practicing Ob/Gyn in NYC discusses the benefits of LARCs.
