New Prenatal Incentive Program Opens In Beacon
Hudson River HealthCare has cut the ribbon for healthier babies at the grand opening of their new prenatal incentive program serving the greater Beacon community on Tuesday, June 6th at the Beacon Community Health Center, 249 Main Street, Beacon. This program is designed to increase the number of pregnant women who begin prenatal care in the first trimester and continue regular prenatal visits until their babies are born. The program provides incentives and encouragement for women to keep prenatal care appointments, a critical factor for helping babies get a healthy start in life. These incentives include new infant clothing, baby supplies and items such as car seats and strollers to pregnant women at low or no cost. Women earn points toward these incentives through a variety of healthy pregnancy activities.
