Overview
The Blanket of Love Program is a prenatal and parenting education program for young women, their spouse or friend and family. Blanket of Love creates a community of support through the combination of a welcoming meal eaten together, an educational program presentation and time for sharing with staff and other members of the group. Following the community meal, the group breaks out into prenatal education or parenting education.

 

Pregnant women receive childbirth education to help them understand prenatal care, labor and delivery processes and strategies for improved health of the mother and for the baby. Another part of the educational program is for young parents to help them understand their baby, the developmental stages to be expected, nutritional tips, infant care techniques and to address any concerns young parents might have. Friends and family are invited to join the single woman or couple in all aspects of the program.

 

Through the funding of March of Dimes during 2007, the first year of operation, the Blanket of Love served 60 young women (and their families) through prenatal education or parenting classes. The program was blessed to have healthy birth outcomes for a group of young women who otherwise would have had many challenges to healthy births.

 

The Blanket of Love Program meets weekly at Ebenezer Church of God in Christ at 3132 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The group gathers at 5:30 p.m. for the meal and educational and sharing meetings continue through 7:00 p.m. each Tuesday night.

Blanket of Love is co-sponsored by Ebenezer Church of God in Christ and is funded through the March of Dimes.
