Pregnant Women

Organization: United Planning Organization

Providing care from belly to cradle
UPO partners with the Healthy Babies Project to serve 52 pregnant women and families as they go through pregnancy and transition into parenting. Prenatal health has an impact on the child’s development so we can enroll moms-to-be in a center where they receive support for a healthy birth. We also train them on fetal alcohol syndrome, breastfeeding, and labor and delivery, and offer dental appointments for those who want them.
The goal is to provide proper planning for the unborn child. All pregnant women are screened for perinatal and post-partum depression and each family receives a post-partum visit 2 weeks after delivery to ensure a healthy transition from hospital to home.
Application: Call to sign up.

    UPO is proud to be the hub for the Quality Improvement Network, a multi-year effort to boost outcomes for infants and toddlers. We oversee 16 child development centers to ensure that they meet the Head Start Performance Standards. DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education chose UPO because we have a proven high-quality model. Our knowledge helps build the capacity of neighborhood-based child care centers, creating a rising tide that truly lifts all boats.
