Healthy Mothers Coalition Directory of Educational Materials.
Public Health Service (DHHS), Rockville, MD.
Intended for use by health care providers and other professionals who work with pregnant women and newborns, this compendium brings together for the first time a comprehensive collection of educational materials on programs produced by government, professional, and voluntary organizations and agencies. Each organization represented in the collection prepared its own listing of materials. Each section includes a brief description of the organization's purpose and goals, followed by annotated listings of printed and audiovisual materials produced or distributed by that organization and instructions for ordering those materials. The collection concerns such topics as parental care; the course of normal pregnancy and delivery; childbirth alternatives; health risks and problems of pregnancy and delivery; infancy (up to 1 year), including child care, normal growth and development, and physical and developmental problems and disabilities; parent education; the workplace and environmental hazards affecting pregnancy; nutrition; the effects of alcohol, drugs, and smoking; breastfeeding; teenage pregnancy; inherited factors and genetic disorders; and sudden infant death syndrome. In addition, a section entitled "Other Sources of Information" lists clearinghouses, programs, organizations, and resources on related topics including child abuse and neglect, safety of infant products and equipment, handicapping conditions, vital statistics, and family planning. Two indexes--a computer-generated subject index and a title index--designed to provide additional access points to the directory information, are included at the end of the document. (MP)
