Baby Buggy WalkersPlease join us for the inaugural Baby Buggy Walk in the Park, as we celebrate our babies and encourage families to have healthy pregnancies in observance of Infant Mortality Awareness Month.  Kicking off the event will be a press conference launching the "Go Before You Show" campaign and website encouraging San Antonio women to seek early prenatal care along with a commemoration for the 122 babies born in 2011 that did not reach their first birthday.  The commemoration will be followed by a 1-mile walk around the park, health expo, health screenings, educational booths, FUN ZONE, and family fitness activities along with healthy snacks. 

Donations of diapers and wipes will be collected to benefit the Healthy Family Network agencies working with expectant and new parents in San Antonio.

Organizer

Texas Healthy Start Alliance

Texas Healthy Start Alliance’s mission is to ensure that all Texas babies have an equal chance for a healthy life

 The Alliance addresses community-based maternal and child health issues focusing on promoting healthy lifestyles for women of child bearing age, maximizing participation in prenatal care, reduction of infant mortality, low birth-weight, racial, ethnic, and border area specific disparities in perinatal outcomes.

 

The Texas Healthy Start Alliance (TXHSA) members include the federally funded Healthy Start projects in the state of Texas. The Texas Healthy Start Alliance supports best practices for the reduction of infant mortality, low birth weight births, and racial disparities in perinatal outcomes. This model emphasizes both the importance of community-based approaches to solving these problems, and the need to develop comprehensive, holistic interventions that include health, social and economic services.
