Perinatal Care Package Pre-Order

What would you say is the greatest joy of motherhood? The part where you get gifts!

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia is giving away FREE perinatal care packages to pregnant and postpartum birth givers who live in Georgia through Pickles & Ice Cream.

We have decided to partner with GA-based agencies and moms across the state to develop a care package for the moms you serve (or to gift yourself because, why not?).

The care packages include items such as a blood pressure monitoring system, compression socks, a thermometer, breastfeeding storage bags, printed educational resources and so much more!

Request orders are accepted monthly to be delivered the next month (i.e. a request made in May is delivered in June).

As we continue to develop our project, we may change or add other package options that are essential to the perinatal period. So, please be aware that the following form may be updated.

If you have questions, need assistance with the form, would like to request more than the allotted amount of kits for an event, or need to edit a request submission, contact lanaarai.wilder@hmhbga.org.

All kits for May have been claimed. Please check back on June 1st.
