Given the problems of access, retention, and relevant prenatal care content, supplements to existing programs for health-care delivery during pregnancy and after birth are necessary. This article describes a community-based approach to prenatal and postpartum care that has been developed to address these issues. Culturally sensitive strategies were created for use with Hawaiian, Filipino, and Japanese women living on the island of Hawaii. Six nursing care and community outreach interventions were used. Local public health nurses assisted in developing the program and are responsible for its coordination and implementation.
