Family Planning in Baker City, OR

From birth control to treating OUD during pregnancy...

At Tamarack Health, we offer a variety of treatments regarding family planning.

Whether you're looking to prevent pregnancy via birth control, overcome opioid use disorder during pregnancy, or understand neonatal abstinence syndrome, we can help you find a suitable strategy so you can achieve your goals.

Contraceptives

We offer oral contraceptives, Depo-Provera as well as the Nuvaring.

Oral contraceptives often referred to as "the pill" are the most commonly used birth control method by inhibiting ovulation.

Depo-Provera, or "depo shot", is a birth control injection you receive every 3 months. It is considered very safe as well as effective given you keep getting it on time.

The Nuvaring is a small, flexible plastic ring that is inserted into the vagina. It needs to be inserted once a month.

Opioid Use Disorder & Pregnancy

We can help ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Your health care professional will develop a treatment plan for you and guide you through the process step by step.

This generally entails the use of buprenorphine, an anti-craving medicine, in conjunction with counseling and recovery support services.

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

Babies who were exposed to substances such as opioids during pregnancy may develop neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Babies suffering from NAS may experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms after birth such as sleep problems, seizures, tremors, vomiting, sweating, fever, and more which requires hospitalization in the beginning as well as further treatment afterward to help with sleeping and eating.
