Welcome to the Cecil County Health Department’s Mom-to-Be Group!
At the Cecil County Health Department, we understand that the journey to motherhood is an incredible and transformative experience. We are excited to introduce you to our Mom-to-Be Group, a program inspired by the March of Dimes principle initiatives, dedicated to supporting and empowering expectant mothers on their unique pregnancy journey.
About the Mom-to-Be Group:
Pregnancy is a time of joy, anticipation, and sometimes questions. Our Mom-to-Be Group is designed to provide a nurturing environment where you can connect with other moms-to-be, share experiences, gain valuable knowledge, and receive guidance from experts in the field of maternal and child health. The program is modeled after the evidenced-based program “Becoming a Mom” from the March of Dimes, an organization renowned for its commitment to healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
What We Offer:
- Educational Sessions: Our Mom-to-Be Group offers a series of engaging and informative sessions on a wide range of topics related to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care. Our expert guest speakers include healthcare professionals, lactation consultants, nutritionists, and more.
- Supportive Community: Connect with other expectant mothers who are going through similar experiences. Share your thoughts, concerns, and excitement in a safe and supportive space. Building connections with fellow moms-to-be can be an invaluable source of comfort during your pregnancy journey.
- Evidence-Based Information: Access the latest evidence-based information about prenatal care, nutrition, exercise, childbirth options, breastfeeding, and postpartum well-being. We believe that informed mothers are empowered mothers.
- Interactive Workshops: Participate in hands-on workshops that cover topics such as baby care basics, infant-safe sleep, and creating a nurturing environment for your newborn.
- Guest Experts: Benefit from the wisdom of guest experts who specialize in various aspects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our partnerships with other healthcare professionals ensure that you receive accurate and up-to-date information.
