Resource Mothers is a program designed to decrease infant mortality and low birth weight rates among Virginia’s teen mothers. To improve birth outcomes for the teen and the baby, the program encourages early entry into prenatal care, smoking cessation, drug and alcohol avoidance, healthy nutrition, up-to-date immunizations for the teen and the baby, regular health care for the infant, return to school or work for the teen, delay of repeat pregnancy and the development of a stable home for the teen and her baby with the help of her family and the baby’s father. Preference is given to first-time pregnant teens without adequate family support. The resource mother is a community health worker who develops a supportive mentoring relationship with the teen and her family. From the prenatal period through the infant’s first birthday, the resource mother provides health education, discusses ways to prevent infant injury, models daily living skills, encourages constructive decision making and life-planning, connects the teen to community resources and provides guidance to assist the teen in making a successful transition to parenthood. The resource mother has weekly contact with the teen and her family. Any pregnant teen is eligible for the program.
