Project Alive & Kicking (PAK) focuses on promoting healthy pregnancies and works to reduce maternal and infant mortality. PAK strives to empower expectant mothers by educating them about healthy pregnancies, fostering an awareness of their babies’ daily fetal movements, and the action they can take to help their babies come into the world alive and kicking. Our organization is comprised of diverse members including physicians, nurses, researchers, teachers, and everyday moms.
Most recently, PAK developed ME Preg, a free mobile app designed to educate expectant mothers with the goal of increasing healthy pregnancy outcomes. ME Preg provides educational information that allow mothers to work with their health care teams and take a proactive role in their pregnancies.
As we move forward, we are committed to helping expectant moms become proactive about their pregnancies. Research tells us that engaging patients in their own health care contributes to a better outcome and experience. One of our goals is to provide health care teams and expectant moms with information and materials they can use together for the best care during their pregnancies.
