Smart Beginnings/Easy Preventions
Bring Peace to the World One Baby at a Time
We prevent child abuse/neglect, infant mortality/malnutrition, illiteracy, and subsequent pregnancy through our seven-year parenting. By working with a population of already pregnant teens, we are able to increase and encourage early maternal/fetal bonding and prenatal mothering. This helps prevent abuse. We are also able to teach the teens about the importance of prenatal nutrition and vitamins. The goals: a healthy full term pregnancy; elimination of infant mortality, and prevention of child abuse.
