Chapter members meet with the young women bi-monthly to promote prenatal care participation and healthy behaviors during the pregnancy through two components – incentives and education. The young women of this program “earn” points toward incentives, such as maternity or baby care items, through a variety of positive, health-promoting activities such as attending prenatal care appointments, participating in prenatal education classes, keeping appointments for well-baby visits.
