Our Special Journey: Pregnancy Passport is a booklet to support women in having a healthy pregnancy, tracking their progress, and preparing for their baby.
The Pregnancy Passport includes:
- information relating to your patient's needs and the care she can expect throughout her pregnancy, birth, and after the baby is born;
- a place to record check-ups and tests;
- places to write down goals, questions, ideas, decisions, and hope and dreams for her baby; and
- a list of resources for more information.
The 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.
The new 2016 passport was adapted from the 2011 Women's Health Pregnancy Passport and informed by the 2015 Aboriginal Pregnancy Passport.
