Education Curricula

The Maternal Health Network of San Bernardino County created a set of  Community Education Curricula to equip providers to support families with vital information before, during, and after pregnancy. 

Routine Checkup
Messaging and Communication
Each curriculum was developed through consultation with local subject matter experts and contains free, customizable resources that can be co-branded to meet your specific needs.  There are 12 curricula regarding key topics across the perinatal journey and they are available in both English and Spanish.

While the central component of each curriculum is a 30-minute educational presentation that can be offered by providers to families, the other materials contained within the curriculum can also be used to support general education and outreach efforts.
