Prenatal Education Program
Su Casa De Esperanza home visitors implemented a new program
entitled "Comenzando Bien/Becoming A Mom," as part of the Prenatal Education program. The program, developed by the March of Dimes, educates the mothers about the importance of prenatal care and delivery of a healthy child.
Forty-one expectant and new mothers from Progreso and Las Milpas completed the course and participated in the graduation ceremonies at
Su Casa De Esperanza. The women shared their experiences and new knowledge they had acquired through the classes taught in the homes by the home visitors. Su Casa hosted a baby shower in each of the centers and presented each participant with a certificate of completion and a baby gift for her baby.
