The Haitian TFR is heading downwards:

Quote:
The preliminary results of one part of Haiti’s 2012 Demographic and Health Survey show a continuing but more-rapid decline in the total fertility rate (TFR, the average number of children per woman) since Haiti’s first DHS in 1994-1995.

Haiti’s TFR was 3.5 for the three-year period preceding the survey. For urban women, the TFR was 2.5; for rural women (who were 53 percent of the sample), the TFR was higher at 4.4. And in the earthquake resettlement camps, the TFR was 3.6. Sixty percent of women with two living children said that they did not wish to have any more children—a hint that the TFR may continue to decline.



Thirty-five percent of currently married or in-union women said that they were using some form of family planning, and 31 percent were using a modern method. Injection was the most frequently reported modern method at 19 percent; 5 percent were using the male condom; and 2 percent were using implants. Contraceptive use was up from the 2005-2006 DHS, when it was reported as 32 percent for all methods and 24 percent for modern methods. The distribution of use by method was very similar to that in 2012.

Infant and child mortality was essentially unchanged from the 2005-2006 DHS. The infant mortality rate in the five years before the 2012 DHS was 59 deaths to infants below age 1 per 1,000 live births; the child death rate (ages 1 to 4) was 31 deaths per 1,000 children in that age range.

According to CIA the TFR of Haiti has moved in this way:

1989 4.2
1990 6.4
1991 6.3
1992 6.2
1993 6.05
1994 5.94
1995 5.82
1996 5.69
1997 4.76
1998 4.67
1999 4.59
2000 4.5
2001 4.4
2002 4.3
2003 4.86
2004 4.76
2005 5.02
2006 4.94
2007 4.86
2008 4.79
2012 2.98

But I don't know how reliable the CIA data are.

Looks like the World Bank info agrees with this trend:

Haiti’s birth rate has been declining since the early 1980s, when it was about 42 babies per 1,000 people, according to the World Bank. It now stands at about 24 per 1,000. That’s still much higher than the U.S. rate of about 14, but it seems to indicate an openness to the idea of family planning.
