Initiated in 2006, the Create and Protect Project sponsors actions with special attention to the comprehensive development of expectant mothers, infants and families from the neighborhoods of Pilar and Olhos D’Agua in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. The groups participate in weekly informational sessions at the Ricardo Vicintin Community Space, where presentations, workshops, group discussions and interactions related to motherhood, pregnancy and postpartum take place. The project is carried out in partnership with the Pilar Basic Health Clinic (Unidade Basica de Saude), as well as with the participation of professionals from diverse areas of expertise, such as law, nursing, nutrition education, psychology and social services, among others. Upon completion of the project, the family is given a layette containing basic articles for the first months of a newborn’s life.
