& Prenatal Care Outreach Coordinator
In partnership with Open Arms Perinatal Services, the Pacific Islander Health Board (PIHB) is contracted to launch two programs: Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program and Prenatal Collaborative Care Program which wraps together midwifery services, childbirth educators, doulas, lactation experts, and other perinatal professionals. The Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program provides free home-based and place-based lactation support to King County families. The perinatal program brings together midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, and community representatives to: 1) provide culturally relevant, peer-to-peer educational support via home-based visits and place-based workshops; 2) provide prenatal education in a group setting through the March of Dimes Supportive Pregnancy Model and doula services free of charge; and 3) provide referrals to other necessary services and resources to address the life circumstances that act as barriers to a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and first year of life. These programs share a goal of improving perinatal health outcomes for the African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Pacific Islander, and rural residents of King County.
The Pacific Islander Health Board is committed to: 1) identify Pacific Islander populations that have barriers to access prenatal care 2) hold 4-6 focus groups to understand why families cannot access care and how can we support them better 3) provide resources to direct prenatal care provided through the Prenatal Collaborative Care Program.
The community outreach coordinator will play a crucial role in researching target populations and connecting with community leaders and organizations that work directly with pregnant families.
