Seeking to decrease the rate of low birth weight babies born in Santa Fe County, the Las Cumbres ¡Que Cute! Healthy Baby Program supports women through their pregnancy so that they have a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth and healthy baby. Risk factors that can potentially contribute to low birth weight include alcohol and illicit drug use, prescription drug abuse, unemployment, multiple births, teen pregnancies, and perceived maternal stress. Smoking, drinking and illicit substance abuse during pregnancy will slow the baby's growth in the womb, increasing the risk not only for low birth weight but premature birth and birth defects. Chronic health conditions can also contribute to low birth weight.

¡Que Cute! program services are held in the community or in the clients' homes and include connections to prenatal care, to doulas and birthing classes, breatfeeding information, nutrition support, help setting goals, and access to community resources. Goals will include provision of concrete assistance and educational services, case management and prevention-based services. Clients will gain a stronger understanding of their pregnancy and their developing baby as well as formation of a strong support system.

In FY 16:

  • 36 prenant women received services
  • 12 babies were born; only one child was born at low birth weight
  • 18 (estimated) other children were indireclty served as a result of their mother being enrolled in services
     

For appointments or more information, call the Santa Fe offices at 505.955.0410 or by fax 505.955.8577. Self referrals, as well as referrals from other community agencies or organizations, are welcome.

The program is supported by Santa Fe County's Community Services Department.
