Maternal Child Health Connections and Support

Perinatal

 
PASOs provides culturally-tailored prevention education, support, and resource navigation for women of child-bearing age, women who are pregnant, and families after the birth of a child in order to address health disparities and improve outcomes for Latino mothers and babies in our state. Community-based CHWs work through local organizations and community outreach and form trusting relationships to help participants navigate maternal, child, and reproductive health care services; overcome obstacles to attending prenatal and postpartum appointments; manage pregnancy-related stress; enroll in the Women, Infant and Children (WIC) nutritional program; provide resources for breastfeeding and newborn care; discuss the benefits of taking folic acid vitamins; obtain a family planning method of their choice; and work towards other personal and family goals.

This program is offered in:
