 First Lady Tomblin Visits New Moms and Moms-to-Be at Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby Shower

8/23/2013
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - First Lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin today attended the 6th Annual UniCare Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby shower at the Charleston Civic Center. During her visit, the First Lady spoke with new moms and moms-to-be about her experiences as a mother.

"This is always an outstanding event for new and expectant moms to learn more about caring for their babies," said First Lady Tomblin. "I feel privileged to, once again, have attended and joined this important conversation. It is a great feeling to know that the thoughtful discussions and information offered to these mothers from community-based organizations will continue to help our children and families."

The event, sponsored by UniCare Health Plan of West Virginia, Inc. (UniCare), featured more than ten community-based organizations - including the West Virginia Birth to Three, Right From the Start and Valley Health Systems Women, Infants and Children programs.

"We want to make local moms feel special, but we also want to make sure they leave with plenty of information they can use before their babies arrive and when they bring their babies home," said Billie Moore, senior health promotion consultant for UniCare. "We know moms-to-be have many questions about their pregnancies and how they take care of themselves plays an important role in helping to ensure they have healthy babies."

UniCare holds baby showers around the state as part of its statewide effort to educate families, and mothers in particular, about the important choices they make on a daily basis and how those choices impact the health of their families.
