Story Type: Big New Idea

Solutions Journalism Network

This collection highlights stories of the story type "big new idea". 

Many solutions-oriented pieces that explore big innovative ideas open with a taste of what the specific program offers. This is also what Shuka Kalantari has done, who has written the multimedia piece "For some, prenatal care is a community affair" for Public Radio International's "Nine Months" series.

The story challenges traditional notions of prenatal care and tracks a group program called Centering Pregnancy. After introducing the work of the program, Kalantari then dives into the problem, which is in this case depression among pregnant Latina immigrant women in California, and how the program helps to address these issues.
