And as a busy parent, it’s more important than ever to have a reliable, no-fuss way of managing how many more babies you have—and when.

Is this a temporary situation, or are you looking for a more permanent solution?

“There really is a contraception method for everyone,” Pasquino says. (Or two—you can always double up!). Here are five moms who have found their fit.
