Comenzando Bien Prenatal Education Program
Developed by the March of Dimes and the National Coalition of Hispanic Health and Human Services, Comenzando Bien is a prenatal education program for Latinx women. The curriculum–delivered by Puentes de Salud’s Community Nurse Liaison and volunteer student nurses–is designed to educate women in a supportive group setting about the importance of receiving prenatal care from early pregnancy through delivery. The program covers physiological and psychological changes during pregnancy, the stages of labor and strategies for managing physical symptoms. It also helps expectant mothers identify necessary behavior changes to prevent birth defects, premature delivery, low birth weight and infant mortality.
Puentes de Salud has developed an innovative diabetes management program that spans from the clinic to the community. A registry of diabetic patients at Puentes de Salud helps providers track patients’ regular laboratory tests and their receipt of appropriate medicines and services. Puentes de Salud offers all diabetic patients individual counseling with a nurse educator that covers the principles of sugar monitoring at home, dietary modification, physical activity and weight management.
