Services for Pregnant Women and Expectant Families
Pregnant women enrolled in our program are provided services through a home-based program option. Home Visitors visit the pregnant women and their families every other week for 45 minutes. The focus of these home visits is on understanding pregnancy; fetal development, understanding pregnancy risks, nutrition information, health education, and ensuring pregnant women obtain proper prenatal care. In addition, we encourage pregnant women to participate in socialization activities twice per month, where they have an opportunity to engage in workshops on nutrition, health, and education. A nursing staff member visits the pregnant mother once before the baby is delivered and within two weeks after the baby is born. Once the baby is born, the family is transitioned into a home-based program option for the baby to receive services.
