Patients of Casa Materna, ODIM and local government health centers use a universal "Maternity Card" allowing all to share data if patients visit different providers throughout their pregnancy. We also help recruit patients for ODIM's "Healthy Mommy and Me" program, which provides training to pregnant women on nutrition, breastfeeding and other health issues of mothers and children.
