Is there any way to create a contact form that doesn't significantly drop your PageSpeed Insights score? I've tried several plugins including WPForms, Contact Form 7, and Ninja Forms. I'm probably still going to leave one up even if there isn't a way around the speed drop, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for your help,, Phil. I looked there first, actually. I don't use the classic editor at all anymore. It's possible I'm missing something, but I couldn't find a block for a contact form.

i think on all the other sites i just automatically add in twentig and ultimate addons for gutenberg
this adds a form block in and some extra features
so it is a plugin but only adding in blocks as necessary

Just wanted to leave the answer to my own question (in case someone else has this problem). There's a plugin called HTML Forms - it won't win any awards for the most attractive contact form (it's very basic compared to other contact forms) but it works and won't slow down your site much at all.

First of all, (and most importantly) thanks for the help. But, to be honest, I'm rather attached to my current theme (It's super common, but still my favorite).
