Enhancing the Arkansas Birthing Project through Technology
PROJECT SUMMARY: The Arkansas Birthing Project provides in-person support during pregnancy and the postpartum period for pregnant women using peer mentors. Our research will investigate the Arkansas Birthing Project’s ability to use technology to support pregnant women and train peer mentors/community health workers, as well as assess the barriers associated with using technology to support this vulnerable population.
