THE STORY:

Healthy Beginnings Inc wrote -

Healthy Beginnings has a unique vision of caring for expectant moms in Cincinnati. We believe in the sanctity of life, both mom and baby. We believe in God’s love for each of those lives and strive to communicate that in all we do. We are committed to giving low-income women high-quality medical care during their pregnancies.

Approximately three quarters of Healthy Beginnings’ $1.1 million operating budget is covered by Medicaid reimbursements and in-kind contributions of medical services. We need your help to cover the remaining quarter which averages $300 per patient.

$300 gives a low-income pregnant mom complete prenatal care during her entire pregnancy including midwife care, lab costs, ultrasounds, nutritional education from a dietitian, postpartum care, and the personal attention that characterizes Healthy Beginnings. Prenatal care has been shown to reduce low-weight births and infant mortality. These healthy deliveries benefit the entire community! According to Cradle Cincinnati, extending pregnancy by just one week for each preterm birth in Hamilton County would reduce annual initial hospital costs by over $25 million.

Your investment in prenatal care truly makes a difference! Thank you for considering supporting Healthy Beginnings and the health of the youngest members of our community. By giving them a healthy start, you are giving Cincinnati a healthier future!
