Healthy Moms, Happy Kids is a safety card for moms that pediatric health care providers can distribute as part of routine care. In addition to providing safety resources for women, this tool also functions as a prompt for pediatric health care providers by providing quick phrases to improve discussions with women about the impact of domestic violence on their parenting and children. Co-branded by the Academy for Pediatrics, the safety card outlines questions women may ask themselves about their relationships, birth control use and parenting, while offering supportive messages and referrals to national support services for help. Also included are pointers for talking to children about violence and what to do in the event of an emergency. This 4-panel double sided tool folds up to the size of a business card (3.5″ x 2″).
