WVPP Awards Mommy & Me Program for Outstanding Achievement

From The Register-Herald:

“The West Virginia Perinatal Partnership, whose stated mission is to “improve health outcomes for mothers and their babies,” recently recognized outstanding achievement by an Access Health program for its successes in helping at-risk pregnancies and postpartum mothers.

The program, named Mommy & Me, takes advantage of several community services to support local mothers who have had behavioral, mental, or substance abuse issues.

Essentially, the program can take at-risk mothers and put them in service with the experts who give the mother and her baby the best chance for the best outcome.”

“Mommy & Me began in 2020 and is in its third year of assisting women in Southern West Virginia. The program also helps women in need of housing, transportation, medical services, and professional counseling sessions.

Lisa Richards, a psychologist at Access Health and the program coordinator for Mommy & Me, said they are helping anywhere from 60 to 80 women a month, and hopes to expand the program’s reach in other areas in the state who may need help as well, including women at Southern Regional Jail.”
