Baby Bootique

The program focuses on low-income parents from the Hospital’s two clinics offering obstetrical services, the Seton Women’s Center and the Family Medicine Center. The goal is to encourage healthy behaviors and healthy babies. Participants receive coupons that they can exchange for clothing, diapers, car seats and other necessities. Among babies born to participants in the program, only 6.1 percent of babies were low birth weight (less than 5 pounds, 9 ounces). Among clinic non-participating patients, 10.2 percent of babies were low birth weight. The Colorado average for low birth weight is 9 percent. Low birth weight infants are at greater risk for health problems than their normal birth weight peers.
