This week, our featured community resource for Find Help Friday is the Guilford County Coalition on Infant Mortality. According to the Coalition’s Coordinator, Charmaine Purdum, “Whether your pregnancy is planned or not, early entry into prenatal care is key, and we are here to help.” The Coalition offers support for pregnant women, specifically prenatal care for women/families who have no resources available to them. The services they provide include prenatal care and case management to support families and provide the help they need to experience the joys of pregnancy and having a healthy baby.
We asked Charmaine what she’s most proud of about the Coalition, and here’s what she had to say: “Being there for families in need and the fact that over 6,000 babies have been born healthy through the Adopt-A-Mom Program. We ‘adopt’ these women, taking them under our wings and help them to get they care the need for the healthiest birth outcome possible.”
Check out the Find Help Friday video to hear more from Charmaine and her colleagues at the Coalition:
