The Tazewell County Health Department would like to offer free diapers and other baby items at a resource event on April 27th. The Bumps2Babies event will take place at the Fondulac District Library in East Peoria from 11 am – 1 pm. This event is open to all pregnant women and families with a baby up to one year old. Topics will include: Benefits of a healthy pregnancy, Effects of smoking on pregnancy, Nutrition, etc.
“The goal of the Bumps2Babies event is to increase education and resources available to new mothers,” states Beth Beachy, Director of Birth to Five Services at Tazewell County Health Department. “Premature and low birth weight babies are more likely to have behavioral issues, hearing and vision defects and dental abnormalities. Our programs strive to reduce the number of poor birth outcomes of high risk pregnancies.”
