St. Luke’s University Health Network will cut the ribbon and host a Community Open House at its newest facility this weekend.
SLUHN’s Baby & Me Support Center is a place where moms and their families can get a little extra guidance, reassurance or just someone to talk to.
“After feedback from patients seeking resources not only during pregnancy and delivery, but after coming home from the hospital, the Baby & Me Support Center was created to address that gap of care that exists between pregnancy and post-delivery,” the hospital said in a news release about the opening. “The Center will provide moms with access to resources commonly needed before, during and after pregnancy, like pediatric services, pre- and post-natal classes, support groups, lactation consultations, postpartum wellness services and a play area.”
“We look forward to continuing to lead the way to better health in the region through excellent care of moms and their babies,” said Jared King, Service Line Administrator, Women’s and Children’s Services. “The St. Luke’s Baby & Me Support Center and the entire St. Luke’s Baby and Me philosophy, represents a continuance of what St. Luke’s has always been known for–providing the highest level of maternal and newborn care through a compassionate and personalized approach.”
The Support Center, located at 1425 Eighth Ave., Bethlehem, will host a Community Open House Saturday, Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at which attendees will have the opportunity to tour the facility and speak with representatives from lactation and behavioral health services, pediatricians, baby and me yoga instructors and more. There will be giveaways, raffles, refreshments, demos and activities for the whole family.
“The Baby & Me Support Center is one of the many ways that St. Luke’s gives moms the personalized attention they deserve while they get to know and care for their babies,” the release said. “St. Luke’s believes that when moms feel educated, prepared and supported, they are able to give their babies a healthy start in life.”
