Maternal & Child Health Programs

OUR GOAL: To Promote Positive Birth Outcomes

 

AACF hosts FREE monthly educational Baby Showers for pregnant women on topics such as Labor & Delivery, Nutrition, Breastfeeding, Postpartum & New Baby Care. At the end of each class, we raffle off a car seat and give out baby clothes, diapers and wipes.

Women at the Baby Showers who indicate they need additional help also receive referrals by our trained Community Health Workers, such as prenatal care, food, housing and transportation. Some women are enrolled in a home visiting program until their baby is born. All Baby Showers are conducted in Spanish and English, with other languages available if requested ahead of time

Contact Us: If you have any questions, or would like to help, contact our Community Health Worker (CHW) Team Lead for Maternal and Child Health, Allison Young at ayoung@aacfmd.org or 301-694-3355.
