If you are pregnant, you may be asking yourself all kinds of questions, such as:

  • How can I get prenatal care?
  • Will I know how to take care of my baby after he or she is born—what should I feed the baby, what shots should the baby get, how often does the baby get changed?
  • What do I need to do to be a loving parent to my baby?
  • What kinds of goals will I be able to make for my own life after the baby is born? 
  • Are there programs available that can help me with medical care and child care?

Resource mothers have special training to help you.

Resource mothers are women from your community who have children of their own. They understand what you are going through as you experience pregnancy. 

Resource mothers are specially trained, certified community health workers to help answer your questions and to give you the support, guidance, referrals and information you need to make good choices so that you and your baby can lead happy, healthy lives.

They will:

  • Listen to you
  • Offer advice
  • Share experiences
  • Call you and visit you during your pregnancy and after the baby is born
