HealthConnect One's<sup>&reg</sup> Community-Based Doula Program Model Intensity and Length

Beginning early in pregnancy, doulas conduct weekly, hour-long prenatal visits. The visits include a combination of home and prenatal clinic visits. The first postpartum home visit occurs within 24 hours of discharge, followed by three to five visits during the first week, two to three visits the second week, and weekly visits for at least eight more weeks. Based on evaluation findings, HC One recommends a minimum of six prenatal and eight postpartum visits.
