December is National Safe Toys and Gifts Month. Legacy Community Health Services helps Houston area mothers shop smarter and make safer choices for their babies by educating parents about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and a myriad of other health precautions. Legacy Community Health Services’ Safe Sleep Program is part of Healthy Starts, which includes maternal and child health patient education on SIDS prevention, car seat safety, nutrition and pregnancy, lactation and child literacy. Healthy Starts, or Comienzos Saludables in Spanish, fills an unmet maternal and child health care need in the Houston area by promoting preventative care and overall well-being to persons, specifically pregnant women and children, who have traditionally faced problems accessing quality health care.
