Required CPSP Services

  • Client Orientation: CPSP practitioners provide an initial orientation and continue to orient the client to needed services, procedures, and treatments throughout her pregnancy.

  • Initial Assessments: The initial obstetric, nutrition, health education, and psychosocial assessments are the first steps taken to determine a client’s individual strengths, risks, and needs in relation to her health and well-being during pregnancy. Ideally, all four assessments are completed within four weeks of entering care.

  • Individualized Care Plan (ICP): The ICP identifies and documents the client’s strengths and a prioritized list of risk conditions/problems, sets goals for interventions, and identifies appropriate referrals.

  • Interventions: Appropriate obstetric, nutrition, health education, and psychosocial interventions during pregnancy enable a woman to increase control over and improve her health and the health of her baby. Interventions can include services, classes, counseling, referrals, and instructions as appropriate to the needs and risks identified on the ICP.

  • Reassessments: Reassessments are offered at least once each trimester and postpartum, and serve as an opportunity to identify other risks and check the client’s progress on those issues the woman wants to change.

  • Postpartum Assessment and Care Plan: The postpartum period is the time to assess the client’s health, strengths, and needs in relation to infant care skills as well as any needs of the baby. A client may receive nutrition, health education, and psychosocial support services anytime throughout the 60-day postpartum eligibility period.

    The training and parking are free!

    Registration information for 2017 will be distributed per our CPSP provider email list.

    Zika Virus Update

    Zika is a mosquito-borne virus. In Brazil, the site of a large ongoing Zika outbreak, there has been a substantial increase in the number of babies born with microcephaly (small head circumference). Please click here for important information for obstetric providers and pregnant women. 

    Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

    Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.

    Choose Health LA Moms
