Pregnant Services Program

Pregnant Services Program

                                           

The Leaguers, Inc. Head Start/ Early Head Start program services pregnant women and their families through weekly 90 minute home visits and bi-weekly group socialization events. During socializations expecting parents have the opportunity to interact with other parents and take part in the March of Dimes, “Becoming a Parent,” pregnancy and newborn health education sessions. Our Home Visitors also assist families in securing healthcare services for both the mother and infant, as well as, childcare service after the baby is born. In addition, through our partnership with Rutgers School of Nursing, expecting mothers will have the benefit of being individually seen by a nurse.

                                             

The Leaguers, Inc. also provides prenatal information through classes, support groups, and home visits on the following subjects:

  • Fetal development, including the risks from smoking and alcohol

  • Male involvement support service

  • Prenatal and postnatal yoga/fitness

  • Lamaze/ labor and delivery classes

  • Postpartum recovery, including information on maternal depression

  • Benefits of breastfeeding & FREE breast pump referrals   

  • Doula referrals

  • Involving fathers during pregnancy and in the birth experience

  • Nurturing and responsive care during infancy

    The Leaguers, Inc. empowers pregnant women and their families in a variety of service delivery models and in diverse settings. We believe that a healthy pregnancy has a direct influence on the health and development of a newborn and we would love to partner with expecting families on this exciting new journey.
