Healthy Families : Nutrition and Life Skills

Official Project

The Problem

Strawberry Mansion, a neighborhood in North Philadelphia, has the highest rate of infant mortality, teen pregnancy, and preterm birth in Philadelphia. I am trying to develop a prenatal nutrition program to break the cycle of unhealthy pregnancies in our neighborhood.

Plan of Action

Hold a weekly workshop for 10 pregnant women in the neighborhood, run by a community based doula, to educate women on breast feeding, exercise, labor support, relaxation techniques, and healthy eating and cooking.
