New Mexico organizations plan a reproductive health care center in Doña Ana County

LAS CRUCES – Four New Mexico organizations have partnered to establish a full-spectrum reproductive health care center in Doña Ana County, which is expected to be fully operational within the next two years.

The University of New Mexico Health and Science Center initiated the Reproductive Health Care Success Project (RHSP) in 2021, through which it surveyed the state for a location that would most benefit from access to a wide range of reproductive health care. Such care would include services such as contraceptive options, prenatal and postnatal care, lactation support, hormone treatment, infertility treatment, screening for sexually transmitted infections and cancer, miscarriage management, adoption education and resources, sex education along with medications and care for abortion procedures. .

The idea is to create a center based on the ideals of the surrounding community that is “culturally congruent, gender-affirming, trauma-informed and ready to serve all people,” according to a press release.
