Curriculum & Implementation

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment's (KDHE) Bureau of Family Health, in partnership with the March of Dimes (MOD), utilizes the Becoming a Mom®/Comenzando Bien® evidence-based prenatal education curriculum at the center of its collaborative approach to delivering comprehensive prenatal education and support in Kansas. The Becoming a Mom (PDF) / Comenzando Bien (PDF) curriculum by the March of Dimes can be accessed online for your review. 

In Kansas, the original March of Dimes curriculum has been supplemented with additional handouts addressing Title V priority areas such as breastfeeding, safe sleep, newborn safety, early childhood development topics, preterm birth, inter-conception health, etc. See the Becoming a Mom Curriculum Table of Contents (PDF) for a comprehensive list of handout titles included in the Kansas model. The curriculum is reviewed on an annual basis and updated as needed and upon the availability of curriculum updates provided by MOD.
