Physicians for Peace Resource Mothers Program Receives Sweatshirt Blanket Donation
Date:4/4/2013

Norfolk, Virginia (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

Physicians for Peace Resource Mothers Program received a donation of sweatshirt blankets from Crooked Brook.

The Resource Mothers Program is modeled on a Virginia-based initiative to improve the health of expectant and new mothers and their babies to empower women in deprived and underserved neighborhoods in the developing world. These resource mothers serve as mentors to at-risk pregnant women and their babies to decrease the rate of infant mortality and low birth weight babies in developing countries. The program was launched in November 2005 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic as "Madres Tutelares" and has seen the births of hundreds of healthy newborns.

Resource Mothers help young mothers receive the appropriate prenatal and pediatric care to ensure a healthy baby, minimize health risks to the expecting mother, and decrease the rate of infant mortality in developing countries. In doing so, these Resource Mothers help pregnant women and their families access social services and community resources. Over time, the resource mothers and their clients build trusting and supportive relationships and continue ensuring the women have information on parenting, nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
