Helping With the Unimaginable: A Story from our Community Home Visitation Program
At 17 years old, Sonia Jimenez found herself facing the unimaginable: she was pregnant.
Just a junior in high school, Jimenez turned to her school nurse, who suggested she reach out to HCI Care Services & Visiting Nurse Services of Iowa. At first, Jimenez declined the suggestion, thinking she would be able to do it on her own, but she soon changed her mind.
She was partnered with one of our community home visitation nurses who would see her through her pregnancy.
