Pettaway Pursuit Foundation's PPF goal is empower new mothers with education and support throughout the prenatal and postpartum period, to achieve healthy newborn outcomes through healthier and prolonged pregnancies. Our Doulas, otherwise known as 92 caregivers, provide non-medical assistance before, during, and after child birth. A Doula also aids the expectant mother's partner and family. The PPF Doula's Health Education Empowerment Project is a means to accentuate our goals by effectively equipping our Doulas with mobile comprehensive sources of technology information and enhancement to our at risk and high risk mothers. We believe accessing and delivering NLM health information resources through the MedlinePlus website, is the best source to actualize our project goals and objectives. This health information awareness grant will augment and enhance the continuum of complete service delivery between the Doula and the member.
