Delaware Healthy Mother and Infant Consortium
Teen and Adult Reproductive Life Plans
A major initiative directed at encouraging active involvement among teens and adult women is the development of two Reproductive Life Plan booklets. These booklets are designed to help teens and women identify their goals in life and write down specific steps for developing healthy relationships and healthy lifestyles. By making positive choices, teens and women can build a happier and healthier future — for themselves and the children they may have.
Kicks Count is a statewide awareness campaign dedicated to improving the chances of delivering a healthy baby by reducing stillbirth rates, which occur in one out of every 150 pregnancies nationwide.
A tool kit has been designed to educate expectant parents about the importance of kick counting in monitoring a baby’s health beginning at 24 weeks. This tool kit contains materials that will help expectant parents learn to track kick counts. Included in this tool kit are education brochures and a Kicks Count tracker pocket booklet for recording a baby’s daily movements.
