by Trammell, Jennifer, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 189; 1596478
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a postpartum education curriculum for women in rehabilitation facilities for substance abuse. The goals of this project were to teach key postpartum nutrition and health concepts to women in the rehabilitation setting, increase women’s nutritional and health knowledge base, and improve women’s feeding and general health habits through provision of current and reliable information from a nutritional professional. The overall goal of the program was to provide the framework and motivation for women to initiate sustainable lifestyle changes, which would hopefully lead to an overall improvement in the health of themselves, as well as their children. This curriculum was designed for implementation at rehabilitation centers in a class setting similar to the support groups or educational lesson’s women already attend as part of treatment and is adaptable based upon the needs and policies of a particular rehabilitation center.
