Clients Receive Intensive Prenatal Care and Create a Delivery Plan

We often take for granted that a woman needs medical attention during her pregnancy, but for some of the women that we serve this is new information. Alice came into our care late in her pregnancy without ever having seen a doctor. Our doctor quickly made time to see her, and we were relieved to find out that both mom and baby were well. With support from The LIGHT House nurse, Alice received intensive prenatal care and created a delivery plan. We are happy to say that Alice delivered a healthy baby girl a few weeks ago, and both mom and baby are doing well. Alice continues to be nurtured at the maternity home learning to care for her daughter as well as learning life skills so the young family can transition to living independently in a few months.
