“PREPARING FOR A HEALTHY PREGNANCY: HELP FOR HIGH-RISK MOTHERS-TO-BE”

Mineola, NY – Winthrop-University Hospital’s Spirit of Women® community education series will offer a free program, “Preparing for a Healthy Pregnancy: Help for High Risk Mothers-to-Be,” on Monday, October 20, 2008, at 6:30 PM. The program will be held at Winthrop-University Hospital, 259 First Street in Mineola, in the New Life Center, Conference Room A.

The program will be of special interest to women who have been considered “high risk” in a previous pregnancy because of one of the following complications: pre-term delivery (less than 37 weeks); preeclampsia (high blood pressure); placental abruption (bleeding); early rupture of membranes; fetal growth restriction or low birthweight baby; or a short or prematurely opened cervix.

Wendy Kinzler, MD, Director of the Adverse Pregnancy Outcome Program at Winthrop, will explain how to improve your chances of having a healthy baby, and Anne Calvo, RN, Administrator of the Winthrop Home Health Agency, will explain home care services that are available to qualifying high risk moms before and after birth. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.

Admission is free, but seating is limited; a light dinner will be served. To reserve your seat, please call 1-866-WINTHROP.

Winthrop is a member of Spirt of Women®, a coalition of American hospitals and healthcare providers that ascribe to high standards of excellence in women’s health, education and community outreach.
