Prenatal Outreach Support Team: POST
Posted byon April 04, 2016
Connecting pregnant women in high risk situations to appropriate community services is the primary goal of the POST project.
The Prenatal Outreach Support Team (POST) is a proactive movement within the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre that was designed to support vulnerable persons during their pregnancy. This integrated team consists of Outreach Workers, Public Health Nurses, and a Police Constable, who all bring unique skills, knowledge, and understanding. This voluntary program provides support, referrals and assessment for vulnerable pregnant persons who are in need of extra support during their pregnancy. Whether it’s the Outreach Workers providing a referral for housing, the Public Health Nurses providing home visits after baby is born, or the Police Constable providing information in regards to the court system, the team is working together to provide individuals with all the support they need. Ultimately, the goals are to facilitate a healthy pregnancy, and to connect individuals to long-term stable community supports to facilitate a healthy, happy life with their newborn.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to call the POST line directly at 403-428-5333.
