New Beginnings: A Worksite Program for Reproductive Health Promotion

New Beginnings is a health promotion program developed to help working women, their families and their employers improve their reproductive health. The program encourages employees to plan for their pregnancies and to initiate early prenatal care. The program manual includes information to help recruit workplaces, ideas to market the classes, planning forms to individualize the program, and lesson plans. A continuum of preventive health care for women in their childbearing years is addressed throughout the course of the program. This section will review the program content for a woman's health before and during pregnancy. [From http://www.opc.on.ca/beststart/workplace/wkplceb.html ]
