    Working together to improve the health of moms and babies in California

    The California Chapter and our partner organizations are helping moms to have healthier pregnancies and to babies begin healthier lives. Below are some programs where our grants and awards are making a difference.

    Sansum Diabetes Research Institute - Seeds of Change program

    This project utilizes peer health advocates (promotoras) to serve low-income, uninsured Latinas who had gestational diabetes in their last pregnancy. The project has developed a Spanish-language teaching toolkit and training program for promotoras to empower the target population to take charge of their health and positively impact a future pregnancy. The components of the program include simple tools for patients to achieve glucose (blood sugar) control, attain a healthy weight, manage their blood pressure and engage in physical activity. 

    Interconception Care Project

    The California Chapter awarded funding to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, District IX to develop interconception guidelines for the postpartum medical visit.  These guidelines assist the obstetric provider in screening, risk-reduction counseling, treatment and referral to improve outcomes of subsequent pregnancies. The guidelines and patient handouts were launched at a summit in Los Angeles in November 2011 and were presented at our 12th Annual Conference for Health Professionals in March 2012.

    University of California, San Diego - SPIN program

    Funding helped the Supporting Premature Infant Nutrition (SPIN) program at UCSD Medical Center to develop a website focused on premature infant nutrition. The website houses educational materials and practical information for families with a newborn in intensive care. The website has reached families and health professionals across California and beyond.
