March of Dimes Presents "Mission: Healthy Baby" Providing Much-Needed Support To Military Families

PORTSMOUTH, Va., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Military moms whose babies were born too soon or too sick were treated to a very special baby shower today at the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) courtesy of the March of Dimes and Operation Shower.

Moms and dads - who never had their own baby shower - received gift boxes filled with baby supplies, clothing, toys, books and much, much more courtesy of March of Dimes top corporate supporter Kmart, and many other generous donors to the March of Dimes and Operation Shower.

During the baby shower, the March of Dimes announced the re-launch of Mission: Healthy Baby(R), a program designed specifically for military families to provide free pregnancy and newborn health information and support services. The program was developed with the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Ladies Auxiliary VFW.

"Having a baby is a joyful experience, but it's also one that comes with anxiety and concerns. Being in the military - whether as a serviceperson or as the partner of a serviceperson - can cause extra stress," said Liza Gene Cooper, LMSW, director, March of Dimes NICU Family Support(R). "Our Mission: Healthy Baby and NICU Family Support programs are designed to give families the information they need to cope with the stress of having a sick baby."

Very high levels of stress, such as the stress caused by a deployment, may contribute to premature birth or low birthweight in full-term babies. Military moms and dads can request Mission: Healthy Baby materials by sending their name and address to missionhealthybaby@marchofdimes.com. Special brochures are also
