Womens program at Heatline

Beautiful women in the Heatline women's program. Every Thursday 20 + women come, they are weighed, temperature taken. pulse, Blood Pressure, HGB (when needed) then given a meal and a weeks supply of vitamin and iron pills. They are then instructed on subjects dealing with pregnancy. This class is on the importance of iron. After the class some of the women are given a complete prenatal , this alternates weeks and depends on where they are in their pregnancy. Most of these women have never had prenatal care with their other pregnancy's and would not now if it were not free. They love the interaction and care they receive. Just this week we delivered a 8lb baby boy, this is an example of what good care, and nutrition can do. I love being a part of loving and caring for these women.
