Spanish-Language Site Focuses on Prematurity as Key Issue for Families
The March of Dimes has re-launched its Spanish-language maternal-child information website, nacersano.org. Some of the topics covered on nacersano.org include staying healthy during pregnancy, labor and delivery, newborn care, and prematurity. Among the new features are numerous recipes rich in folate from many Latin American countries, "Just for Dads" features, a calendar of special events of interest to the Hispanic community, and features on Latino families in the US who have compelling stories to tell, primarily related to prematurity and folic acid. Visitors can also email questions related to maternal health and pregnancy to firstname.lastname@example.org. [Courtesy of Judy Meehan at the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition.]
