For Providers

Health care providers play a crucial role in ensuring that all young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child. We provide evidence-based resources and trainings to support all providers—including health educators, doctors, midwives, and community organizations—in delivering patient-centered care.

Resources for Providers

Bedsider Providers is a digital platform with the information and tools health care providers need to offer resonate and relatable sexual and reproductive health care. Educational materials, digital tools, and original content make it easier to discuss birth control and sexual and reproductive health care with patients. 

One Key Question® training provides a framework for providers to routinely ask their patients about pregnancy desires and offer counseling and care based on their response. We offer trainings and technical assistance to providers, organizations, and others interested in adopting this approach.

Resources to Give Patients

Bedsider is an online birth control support network for young people age 18 to 29. Bedsider.org provides millions of young people with authoritative, accessible, high-quality information about contraception and sexual health each year.

AbortionFinder is an easy-to-use search tool with clear, up-to-date information about the availability of abortion care across the country and how to access it, available in both English and Spanish. With the state of abortion access changing rapidly across the country, AbortionFinder also offers state-by-state guides with up-to-the-minute information about abortion access by state, a printable list of all abortion providers in the state, and a list of all abortion funds and practical support organizations in each state.

Power to Decide and Bedsider's educational materials can support providers and patients in informed decision making conversations, for example, when selecting a birth control method. We offer post cards with just the right amount of information on birth control methods, tear sheets that help visualize birth control and emergency contraception options and their effectiveness, wall posters, brochures, and more!

Power to Decide and Bedsider's educational materials are a great way to connect with your patients in a voice that resonates with young people. And we have partnered with numerous organizations over the years and can partner with your organization to design and develop customized materials for your audience.

Bedsider’s free reminders app allows users to schedule birth control reminders to use and get refills for the pill, patch, ring, or shot. A great resource for providers to pass along to their patients, we even have discreet reminders for those concerned about confidentiality.

Bedsider’s birth control finder has the most comprehensive list of where to get birth control, in person and online. Health care providers are welcome to add their clinic, practice, or location if it's not already in our directory through our online submissions form
