D.C.'s mobile maternity unit, parked in Anacostia.
In Anacostia, a 17-year-old named Tamika pops into the so-called Mom Van for pregnancy and AIDS tests. She's timid at first, but 20 minutes later, she emerges with a big smile on her face.
"Good. As I thought," she says. "No pregnant. No nothing."
And she says more women should take advantage of the services available at D.C.'s Mobile Maternity Unit.
"So we can know," she says. "Cause a lot of people don't take time out and go to the doctor. For us to have this on the street you could just walk up and take 20 minutes to get tested and you'll know," Tamika says.
Equipped with an exam room and dental clinic, the D.C. Mom Van provides free prenatal care and case management in wards 5,6, 7 and 8. Twana Fortune-Jones works on outreach and family support services for the D.C. Department of Health.
"Most moms want to have a healthy baby," she says. She says the D.C. Mom Van helps them do that.
