It is a simple way of regulating and spacing the births of children. It is giving birth according to the health and economic conditions of the family, giving birth of the mother according to her right age. Conception is not left to chance. Benefits derived from Family Planning are identified as follows: 1. For the family to promote healthy, happy family. 2. For the mother - she can recover her health and strength after delivery. 3. For the child - a better chance of growing healthy and well cared.
