In the puerperium, the woman needs a support network that contemplates her family, her partner, the community, social and health institutions. The themes of sexuality and reproductive planning are often invisible in the puerperal period. Sexual and reproductive health is understood as essential to stimulate the empowerment of women in self-care. In this perspective, this study aims to understand what care practices developed by the health team of primary care and the challenges encountered for the implementation and implementation of sexual and reproductive education actions. This is a qualitative research that will use the perspective of the participant research and will use as theoretical references the concepts of Health Education, Integrality and Sexual and Reproductive Rights present in the national and international health policies. Data collection will take place with health professionals who work in the context of primary care. Data collection instruments will be used for semi-structured interviews and participant observation. Data analysis will be done by discursive analysis using dialog maps. It is hoped that this study favors the problematization and sensitization of the professionals on the subject and, with this, it is glimpsed the opening for changes and improvements in the practices of health care and education with women in the puerperal period.
