The Gamma Omicron Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., promoted their national project, Project Cradle Care with a prenatal and postnatal education fair for pregnant teens, that was held at Edward Waters College. Activities included information about the care of mothers and baby, SIDS, breastfeeding, swaddling the baby, and the importance of keeping doctor appointments.
Each mom was given gift bags that included: a pack of pampers, wipes, bottle, rubber ducky, onesie, baby bath essentials, bibs, and washcloths. In addition, gifts were raffled off and included gift certificates, baby formulas, a baby remote chair, smaller bags with sleepwear, bottles, and many more. The event was open to all teens who were expecting.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Project Cradle Care is a prenatal education and resource program in conjunction with the March of Dimes that seeks to improve pregnancy outcomes in high-risk communities by increasing the number of women of childbearing age who receive adequate prenatal education and prenatal care and who better understand proper infant care and child development. This community-based collaboration includes hospitals, managed care organizations, community-based prenatal care providers, and special guest speakers.
