We gratefully acknowledge the people who helped us get here

Bedsider has been developed with the assistance of many experts and many young adults as well, who are Bedsider's main audience, and we thank them all for their guidance and insights. We are especially grateful for the advice provided by the Healthcare Advisory Committee of Power to Decide, the campaign to prevent unplanned pregnancy. Even so, responsibility for the content of Bedsider, including all medical information, rests solely with Power to Decide itself.
