Services \ Earn While You Learn

Earn While You Learn (EWYL) is an educational program offered at the Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic. This program is open to clients and members of the community who are pregnant or parenting babies, and who desire to learn about steps to take to ensure a healthy pregnancy and to gain parenting skills. EWYL participants work with a peer-mentor who offers support and help with accessing resources in the community.

EWYL covers a wide variety of topics:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Nutrition
  • Goal-setting
  • Child development
  • Parenting skills
  • Relationship-building

While the program prepares women and couples to be parents, EWYL also provides participants with opportunities to earn points that can be spent in the Baby & Me Shoppe at WCPC. The Shoppe offers many of the necessities for a baby, including diapers, clothing and even baby furniture.
