Responding to the Needs of First-Time Parents
Why Focus on First-Time Parents?
Young first-time mothers and fathers are uniquely vulnerable, often starting their reproductive lives without critical information and health services. Just think of the difference we can make by reaching first-time parents with a continuum of care—designed to address the specific needs and challenges they face as they navigate through this pivotal stage in their lives.
E2A is breaking ground with first-time parents. In Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and Tanzania, we promote a carefully sequenced package of information and services to address their immediate reproductive health needs and facilitate their action to improve their family’s wellbeing and future.
Health Needs. Inter-Relational Dynamics. Gender and Social Norms.
With E2A’s First-Time Parent Framework, you can explore and address the factors that influence young first-time parents’ health and wellbeing using a life-course and socio-ecological lens.
