The Mothers Club of PHC is a nonprofit group that volunteers its time to raise funds for the Birthing Center at PHC. The club was formed in 2007 and is working to create free community service programs for mothers, babies and pediatric patients.
In December 2007, the club launched “The Snuggle Program” which provides every baby born at PHC with a Halo Sleep Sack. These sleep sacks are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics to reduce the incidence of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The sacks are given compliments of The Mothers Club of PHC in the hope that babies will sleep more comfortably and soundly as will their mothers knowing they are safe.
Additional programs being developed include a toy drive that would give every pediatric patient in the hospital and their waiting siblings a toy to help make their wait a little less stressful and bring a smile to their faces.
The Mothers Club of PHC meets the first Wednesday of each month at 10 am in the Birthing Center Conference Room at Putnam Hospital Center. Dates for the remainder of 2008 are March 5, April 2, May 7, June 4, July 2 (no August meeting), September 3, October 1, November 5 and December 3.
The group is always looking for members who would like to be part of a worthwhile and fun organization. The group welcomes you and your ideas. There is no pressure to put in lots of time; all the group asks is that you give what time you can.
