Since the after birth supplies needed are often unattainable for low income families, the Southern NV MCH Coalition created a program to offer ‘New Mama Care Kits’. They provide new mothers with maxi pads, moist towelettes, wipes, disposable underwear, purse size hand sanitizers, information about ‘What to Expect After Giving Birth’ and ‘How to Care for Stitches’, additional materials to recognize signs of postpartum depression and other relevant information for families with young children. Following in their footsteps is the Northern NV MCH Coalition, these kits will soon be available to those in the north and rural areas of Nevada!
If you or your organization would like to volunteer for our next New Mama Care Kits Assembly Day, please email Kairirenae.Pangelinan@dignityhealth.org.
We are grateful to have the support from Molina Healthcare, Anthem, Health Plan of Nevada and Dignity Health to be able to provide after care kits to Nevadan families. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please email Tori.Diego@dignityhealth.org for more information.
Our New Mama Care Kits were featured in the Las Vegas Baby Magazine!
