Welcome to the WCH Blog where we write about current events including politics, “viral” posts, new research, the WCH podcast, reflections, and other tips on how to enhance your communication skills.
The goal of the WCH Blog is provide you, sexual and reproductive care providers, with an easy and convenient way to stay connected to the communication world. We understand that you are busy and probably don’t have a lot of time for extra reading, so we will keep our blogs succinct and provide you with some key take away points. Don’t have time to read?

In this episode we interview Dr. Zoey Thill regarding her research with abortion after care instructions. We get into some great discussions about focusing on adverse outcomes, discussing birth control at an abortion appointment, a new concept for us-structural competency, and we finish up with a conversation on the new Reproductive Health Act and what that means for New York.
