Women's Health Pregnancy Passport
The Women's Health Pregnancy Passport is a handy resource that your patients can use to navigate through their pregnancy.
The Pregnancy Passport includes:
- information relating to your patient's needs throughout her pregnancy, birth, and after the baby is born that your patient can think about and discuss with you;
- information about the care she can expect during pregnancy, birth, and the first weeks after the baby's birth;
- a place to keep notes and a record of check-ups and tests; and
- a list of resources for more information.
The Women's Health Pregnancy Passport is published by Perinatal Services BC in partnership with the Ministry of Health and health authorities. The Pregnancy Passport is a companion to Baby's Best Chance.
Aboriginal Pregnancy Passport
Our Sacred Journey: Aboriginal Pregnancy Passport is a culturally appropriate health promotion resource empowering women and families through their sacred journey of pregnancy. The resource incorporates First Nations/Aboriginal traditional beliefs and values as well as clinical best practices.
With the Aboriginal Pregnancy Passport, women can document their sacred traditional journey through pregnancy, birth, and baby’s first few weeks. The passport provides expectant mothers with health information, resources, traditional teachings, growth charts, checklists, and a place to write down goals, thoughts, ideas, and dreams for their babies.
The Aboriginal Pregnancy Passport, adapted from the Women’s Health Pregnancy Passport, was developed by Perinatal Services BC in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and First Nations Health Authority. A special thank you to the First Nations and Aboriginal Elders, community members, and professionals who helped develop this resource; members of the Provincial Advisory Committee; expert reviewers from around the province; and the Population and Public Health Program at the Provincial Health Services Authority. Please see the full list of acknowledgements.
