Exceptional care for mom and baby
Providence St. Mary Foundation funds several free programs to ensure the best care possible for mom and baby as you welcome your little one into the world.
Our safe sleep program sends each newborn home with a free SleepSack. This wearable blanket provides warmth while encouraging safe sleep at home. Your gift now will ensure this program and others continue.
A recent investment from the Foundation launched a breast milk collection site in the Lactation Clinic at Providence St. Mary in response to a grassroots effort. Women in our community requested a location to drop off their excess milk after learning the medical need is greater than the available supply. The milk is collected at the Lactation Clinic, shipped to Portland for sterilization and is then available for premature or vulnerable infants who have medical needs.
Recently, the Foundation funded a new addition for the Special Care Nursery—a Panda Warmer to ensure that infants needing moderate levels of specialized care receive that care as quickly as possible after birth.
Your gift provides ongoing support to ensure the best care possible for mom and baby.
