Description Eligible participants will be identified in the prenatal period and will be randomized to one of two groups. The control group will receive the standard of care contraceptive counseling during prenatal counseling. The intervention group will also receive the standard of care contraceptive counseling during prenatal care, but will also watch an evidence-based,12 minute LARC First video created by the CHOICE project which provides information on different contraceptive methods. All participants will receive information regarding access to free LARC methods in the postpartum period. All participants will be called at 12 weeks postpartum. Independent of randomization arm, they will all undergo a 5-minute survey by phone about contraceptive method choice and use.
