On Wellness in WV

Charleston, W Va. – New moms and moms-to-be are invited to UniCare’s 6th Annual Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby Shower on Friday, August 23. The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. –1:00 p.m. at the Charleston Civic Center – doors will open at 10:30 a.m.

The baby shower is sponsored by UniCare Health Plan of West Virginia, Inc. (UniCare) and is free to new moms and moms-to-be. Door prizes including car seats and baby monitors will be provided by many of the participating organizations.

“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 that 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.”

The event will feature more than ten community-based organizations that will provide educational exhibits and presentations including:

  • Our Babies: Safe & Sound
  • Valley Health – Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
  • WV Birth to Three
  • Project Linus

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.
