The Enlace Project: Practice Guidelines for Working with Latin@ Pregnant and Parenting Survivors

Download this publication

Building on the Practice Guidelines for Working with Pregnant and Parenting Survivors (www.pregnantsurvivors.org), the current guidelines seek to incorporate the skills and knowledge of health care professionals and advocates who provide services to members of Latin@ communities. Gaining a clearer understanding of the complexity of the lived experiences of Latin@ communities begins with recognizing how discrimination based on social inequalities compounds every aspect of life. We worked with advocates and health care professionals in rural counties in central and eastern Washington State to identify the ways in which the Practice Guidelines should be modified. This region has a high proportion of Latin@ residents, including migrant workers, farmworkers, and indigenous communities. The voices of these health care professionals and bilingual, bicultural advocates are incorporated throughout this document to illuminate the range of experiences faced by Latina@ communities.
