Pride in Parenting (PIP) Model Description

The Pride in Parenting (PIP) demonstration program aimed to increase mothers’ use of preventative health care for themselves and their children, and improve the safety of child-rearing environments. It offered one year of services to mothers with newborns who received late or inadequate prenatal care. PIP included home visits in which visitors provided information on parenting, child care, health, and child development. In addition, hospital-based group sessions were offered to expand on those topics. Home visits were offered weekly from birth through 4 months of age. From 5 months to 12 months, the home visits alternated with biweekly group sessions. For more information, please read the Model Overview.
