Please consider the following resources to assist your practice in communicating preconception health messages to your patients/consumers. Additional resources coming soon.
Show Your Love is a national preconception consumer resource and social media campaign. Show Your Love is designed to improve the health of young adults by promoting preconception health and wellness. This evidence-based social marketing campaign is seeking to elevate preconception health to same level of awareness and significance as prenatal health.
The “Wellness Resources” section of this consumer preconception health resource has the top resources for young adults to utilize in their efforts towards healthier choices. There is also a “Well Visit 101” section that covers FAQs and information to navigate the well visit and insurance.
More details about Show Your Love here. For more information on how to join this movement please download the Show Your Love Phase 2 Implementation Toolkit. Please see resources linked to the Preconception Health and Healthcare Resource Center including information and products for women and men on preconception health through the Show Your Love campaign.
