|Subject:||Healthy Babies Month in Pennsylvania - May 2019|
|I will be introducing a resolution designating May 2019 as “Healthy Babies Month” in Pennsylvania.
The March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation recognizes May 2019 as “Healthy Babies Month” to educate women and their partners about the importance of before, during and after pregnancy care, nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle in order to enhance positive birth outcomes. Pre and post pregnancy care, in addition to early regular prenatal care, is a pregnant woman’s first line of defense for protecting her baby. If problems arise, the earlier they are detected, the more likely they are to respond to treatment.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this resolution on the importance of early regular prenatal care
