The Healthy Homes, Healthy Children Working Group is making sure all babies in our region are born healthy and stay healthy. The group wants every child and family to have access to important resources such as prenatal care, newborn home visitation programs and well-child medical screenings.
- Develop a regional infant safe sleep campaign where families learn to put their babies safely to sleep to help keep them healthy. Click here to learn about Sleep Tight Hampton Roads.
- Align the screening process for new mothers and their newborns so there is one protocol for identifying needs.
- Create a Pathway through Pregnancy roadmap to help mothers deliver healthy babies.
It is my hope that the Minus 9 to 5 initiative will implore service providers, systems staff and citizens to embrace an approach that shares resources and time to create solutions that empower the people each project is designed to impact. It is the only way to BE the change we want to see.
