Pregnancy Checklist: Pre/Postnatal Care Considerations

This checklist, created in partnership with the Society of Refugee Healthcare Providers, aims to guide conversations between case managers and clients to help newcomer parents prepare for the pre- and post-natal (postpartum) periods of pregnancy in the U.S. Even if someone has experienced pregnancy in another country, understanding the expectations, resources, and cultural norms specific to the U.S. will assist their transition from pregnancy to parenthood.  This checklist is not a compliance tool for any specific grant or program; always reference your grant agreement and terms for specific program requirements. It should serve as a starting point framework rather than a comprehensive list. It is meant to be customized to include any additional checklist items as necessary. In addition to this resource, you may find a checklist for Hospital and Home Preparation linked.
