IZ N.E.S.T. Healthy Hoosier Babies Program, Inc. (Stork’s Nest) is a cooperative project of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and the March of Dimes Foundation. Stork’s Nest aims to increase the number of women receiving early and regular prenatal care in an effort to prevent cases of low birth-weight, premature births, and infant deaths.
The program is designed to promote prenatal care participation and encourage healthy behaviors during pregnancy through two components – incentives and education. Stork’s Nest clients “earn” points toward incentives such as maternity or baby care items though a variety of positive, health-promoting activities: attending prenatal visits, participating in prenatal education classes, stopping at-risk behaviors such as smoking cigarettes and consuming alcoholic beverages, reducing stress, etc.
IZ N.E.S.T. Healthy Hoosier Babies Program, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 organization. Donations are used to support our mission and purpose. All donations are considered tax deductible.
