In no more than 3 sentences, please tell us who your idea is designed for and how it reimagines the new life experience.

It's for mother in low income areas- they might simply not have the knowledge to make their pregnancy better. By designing a series of free classes, they will be able to connect with other local mothers, and gain knowledge of the changes going on in their body.

Create a series of easily accessibly classes about pregnancy- and get women together to learn and form a support group. 

At what stage is your idea?

  • Back of the Napkin Sketch: I came up with this concept and would love support in making it come to life!

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Design a sample class and hold it in a local community center- see if people are interested in it.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

Consulting a doctor on what issues are most prominent- potentially getting a doctor to head the course, and talk to the women

This idea emerged from...

  • An Individual

Are you an expecting, new, or experienced mom?

  • no

Are you a healthcare practitioner?

  • no

Are you a current employee of UCB Pharmaceuticals or Sutter Health?

  • no

Hannah,
This is a great idea especially to bring the community of parents and mothers together. Something to consider would be the type of things that would be taught specifically on pregnancy and maybe you could offer a more hands on class for this too.
