Literature Review: Reaching Young First-Time Parents for the Healthy Spacing of Second and Subsequent Pregnancies

This literature review, focuses on one specific population of young people largely neglected by reproductive health programs to date: first-time parents. The Evidence to Action (E2A) project defines first-time parents as young married mothers under the age of 25 and their partners, who have one child. E2A’s literature review looks at published and grey literature in an effort to describe both enabling and constraining demand- and supply-side factors that influence first-time parents’ use of contraceptives for the purpose of spacing their second and subsequent pregnancies.
