Annual Stork’s Nest Baby Shower was a success

in Uncategorized by

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Mu Pi Zeta Chapter held its 12th Annual Stork’s Nest Baby Shower during the month of April at each of its four locations.

This event was sponsored by the Coastal South Tobacco Coalition. Mr. Wade Bishop and Mrs. Katie Godowns, representatives from the coalition, shared information regarding the negative effects of second and third hand smoke on pregnant women and their families. Mrs. Cindy Coburn-Smith, manager for Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s Life Fit Community Health Improvement Program, informed guests of the obstetricians currently on staff at BMH — Dr. Claude Tolbert, Jr., Dr. Berniece Redmond, Dr. Christopher Benson and Dr. Gregory Miller — and the benefits offered by Life Fit when receiving prenatal care.

Drawings were held at each Stork’s Nest for free baby items and the grand prize of a hand-made baby quilt made by Barbara Ray for each nest.

A big thank you goes to all presenters, guests, and Stork’s Nest locations for extending themselves within the community to bring awareness of the importance and benefits of prenatal care.
