The Clay County Perinatal Coalition announces the launching of their new, interactive website, simplybaby.org, whose focus is to provide education and access to prenatal care for pregnant women in the area. Helping mothers overcome barriers so their babies are born healthy, safe and strong is the primary goal of this coalition.
The new website provides information on The Healthy Mommy, Healthy Baby program which provides in-home visits to expectant mothers and their families, providing a number of services to promote health for mothers and infants at no cost. Community Health Workers will guide expectant mothers through each stage of pregnancy, as well as your child’s growth.
Expanded content on the website also includes sections highlighting safe sleep, breastfeeding, nutrition, immunizations and practical advice prior to bringing the baby home from the hospital.
“We are committed to building and maintaining trusted relationships with our health partners in the community and this website is an example of our ongoing efforts,” said Austin M. Gillard, CEO at Clay County Medical Center. "Lori Beikman designed the hospital’s website and I volunteered her services to help the Clay County Perinatal Coalition communicate their programs and services.”
Complementing its online interface, the new website is optimized for desktop, tablet and mobile use.
The Clay County Perinatal Coalition includes representatives from the Clay County Health Department; Clay County Medical Center; Clay Center Family Physicians; Special Delivery, LLC; Infant and Toddler Services; Parents as Teachers; Clay County Child Care Center; Clay County Resource Council; Clay Center Community Improvement Foundation; Washington County Community Foundation; Washington County Health Department; Kansas Department of Health and Environment and March of Dimes.
