Our First Baby: Health Education for Adolescents Who are Pregnant or First-Time Parents
The Our First Baby Facilitator’s Guide contains nine participatory sessions to be used in small group sessions with first-time mothers and their male partners. Sessions cover fertility, antenatal care, care of the mother during pregnancy, first-time fatherhood, birth planning/delivery, newborn and postpartum care, exclusive breastfeeding, healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy, family planning, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and gender-based violence.
The Facilitator's Guide is accompanied by a Flipbook. Each page of the Flipbook has pictures on one side and an explanation to be used by the facilitator on the other side.
