Since its launch in 2017, the Family Wellness Education Series has grown in attendance and awareness. Thanks to your support, it’s now offered virtually. The Family Wellness Series focuses on the behavioral needs of children and families and addresses topics such as technology addiction, anxiety, depression and more.
For years, our Car Seat Program has been a highly sought out resource for parents, grandparents and childcare providers in the community. We offer free monthly checks and inpatient checks as well as staff and patient education on the safety of a properly installed child restraint system.
Since launching in 2019, the Seacoast Babies App has been well-received by both patients and providers. The app will continue to be updated, providing patients with accurate information pertinent to their care. Scholarships for children to participate in Pediatric Therapeutic Programs like art, music, swim and hippo therapy (horseback riding) are made possible by you.
We offer Maternal Mental Health Support Programs which include Labor and Postpartum Doula Support for families in need, a weekly support group for women with postpartum depression and anxiety, bereavement coordination and more. We remain the only hospital in the area offering these services and the most comprehensive care for women in their childbearing years.
In 2021, thanks to our generous supporters, the Fund-A-Need Program achieved a record breaking $32,000 raised to fund the purchase of a rapid transfuser and infant warmer for the Women & Children’s Center. These critical pieces of equipment save the lives of mothers experiencing postpartum hemorrhage and newborn babies in distress.
