- Knowledge of reproduction [ Time Frame: 2 months after the intervention ]
Knowledge will be measured by knowledge of the following:
- the fecundity of an ovum
- how likely it is that a 25-year old women gets pregnant if she has unprotected intercourse at the time of ovulation
- at what age there is a marked decline in women's ability to become pregnant
- baby take home rate after IVF-treatment
- factors that can impair female fertility
- healthy lifestyle during pregnancy planning
- Family Planning Intentions [ Time Frame: 2 months after the intervention ]
Family planning intentions will be measured by the following questions:
- Do you want (more) children in your life?
- If yes, how many (more) children do you want?
- If yes, at which age would you like to have your first/next child?
- If yes, at which age you like to have your last child?
- Experience of the intervention [ Time Frame: 2 months after the intervention ]
Experience of the intervention is measure by
- The overall experience of the intervention (very positive - very negative)
- If the intervention made them think about reproduction in a different way
- If the intervention made them search for more information about reproduction
- The likelihood of approaching a midwife if they have more questions about reproduction
- If they considered that midwifes or other health care professionals routinely should discuss the Reproductive Life Plan with their patients
