Healthy Start of Southwest Florida receives help from The Junior League of Fort Myers to help educate new moms

Over 50 volunteers from the Junior League of Fort Myers donated their time to assemble 1275 prenatal educational bags for pregnant women. Each bag contains valuable information for new moms about the importance of prenatal care and about the stages of their pregnancy. Healthy Start distributes the bags to health care providers throughout Southwest Florida to be given to women during their first prenatal visit. The Junior League also gave a generous donation to cover the purchase of the materials for the bags.

We sincerely appreciate the Junior League of Fort Myer’s continued support of Healthy Start’s mission to reduce infant deaths and increase healthy births in our community.
