Baby Basics Program

Guiding moms to a healthy pregnancy

Explore our Baby Basics program materials below. First, we created a book, Baby Basics: Your Month By Month Guide To A Healthy Pregnancy, designed specifically to provide lower-income and lower-literacy populations with crucial prenatal health information and support. It has since grown from a book, to a program, to an overall healthcare philosophy. Baby Basics is evidence-based—revolutionizing the prenatal experience and outcomes for families in need—one clinic, one mom, one baby at a time.
