Targeting Central Ohio zip codes with the highest infant mortality rates, Moms2B provides weekly education and support sessions to high-risk pregnant women to promote healthier lifestyle choices and link them with social support resources.
The goal of Moms2B is for all participants to deliver healthy, full-term infants that live to celebrate their first birthday Moms2B encourages all pregnant women to participate and invites them to remain in the program until they are one year postpartum.
Moms2B educates through a multi-disciplinary team approach. Healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, social workers, dietitians, lactation counselors, and healthcare students educate on maternal and infant health topics.
The education topics, specifically designed to address concerns and questions of Moms2B participants, focuses on:
- Child Development
- Family Planning
- Goal Setting
- Labor & Delivery
- Maternal-Infant Health
- Positive Parenting
- Reproductive Health
- Safe Sleep and more!
Each program session is delivered in a supportive environment, encouraging and empowering moms to take ownership of their choices, often leading to new found independence after the baby’s delivery and beyond.
Moms2B even provides a healthy and hot meal with every session to supplement the diets of participants, as 85% report experiencing food shortages at home within the past year. On-site child care is also provided for all program participants; this allows moms to engage and interact not only with the education, but also with fellow participants. Pre-registration is not required. Please call 614-292-1605 for more details.
