Colorado Adolescent Maternity Program (CAMP)
Specialized Program for Young Mothers
We are dedicated to supporting young mothers throughout pregnancy, the birth process and in parenthood. Teen mothers and women under the age of 21 have unique medical, emotional and nutritional needs.
These unique needs include:
- risk of having a baby with low birth weight
- risk for premature labor
- the potential for developing anemia
- understanding and maintaining good nutrition during pregnancy
- recognizing the impact of pregnancy on education and finances
To meet the needs of pregnant teens and women under the age of 21, the Colorado Institute for Maternal & Fetal Health offers a program called the Colorado Adolescent Maternity Program or CAMP.
CAMP highlights include:
- Care from certified nurse midwives trained in adolescent maternity care
- Access to specialists trained in high-risk care, if needed
- Nutritional support from a registered dietician
- Breastfeeding assistance from a trained lactation consultant
- Prenatal education classes
- Assistance with benefits from Women, Infants and Children (WIC), Medicaid and other social support agencies
Please call (720) 848-1734 for more information about CAMP.
