Villanova, PA, April 14, 2011 — Safety is a critical part of parenting, though targeted education isn’t always accessible to or accessed by new parents. On April 13, a group of Villanova University College of Nursing students brought vital information to new mothers as part of their maternal-child health clinical practicum with adjunct Clinical Professor Joanna McGrath MSN RN, a specialist in obstetric nursing.
Working with the staff of A Baby's Breath, a Crisis Pregnancy Center, in Jeffersonville, Pa., the students provided a parenting class to new mothers. They presented a range of topics such as home safety with infants and children, first aid, burn and poison prevention, “back to sleep” and SIDS prevention, safe co-sleeping, choking first aid and prevention.
A Baby's Breath, a Crisis Pregnancy Center is a non- profit, Catholic based, all volunteer center that provides free pregnancy test, confidential counseling, parenting and pre-natal classes, a baby store and tutoring.
