Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Have questions about the training? Read below and hopefully we can answer some of those questions. If we didn't cover it, you can contact us at

  • Who can participate in this training?

    Anyone who works directly with clients and is interested in learning how to discuss reproductive life goals with them is encouraged to attend. This may include, but is not limited to, social workers, case managers, community health workers/health educators, doulas, nurses, healthcare providers, and/or home visitors.

  • What is a reproductive life goals conversation?

    Reproductive life goals (RLG) conversations engage clients in exploring their pregnancy intentions or desires by asking simple questions, utilizing basic counseling tools, offering information and education, and helping clients identify needs for related sexual and reproductive health services.

    Asking clients questions such as, “Do you think you might like to have (more) children at some point?” and discussing with them how they may prepare for or avoid pregnancy would be considered engaging in a basic RLG conversation.

    While there may be various ways to engage clients in these types of conversations, Every Body Texas pulls from its expertise in the sexual and reproductive health field to offer an approach to RLG conversations that has been endorsed by the Reproductive Health National Training Center (RHNTC) and adopted by various states and organizations as best practice. RLG conversations should be person-centered, free of bias and preserve clients sexual and reproductive autonomy.

  • What is the benefit of having a RLG conversation with my client?

    RLG conversations center the person as the expert in their lives and the best one equipped to determine their needs. This can be especially crucial for individuals who experience hardships or needs that bring them into the social service space. Engaging clients in conversations about their sexual and reproductive health can help decrease stigma or stress around this topic and seeking needed care, normalize their health experiences, reinforce their bodily autonomy, and help them access vitally important sexual and reproductive healthcare services.

    According to the most recent data, 2 million women in Texas need access to publicly funded contraceptive services. Almost 140,000 of them live in the five-county area of Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. By engaging clients in RLG conversations, social service providers can help ensure those individuals that want or need sexual and reproductive services get them.
