Philadelphia, Pa. (Vocus) June 17, 2010
Keystone Mercy Health Plan, the largest Medical Assistance managed care organization in Pennsylvania, in conjunction with Intercultural Family Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides health services to families, will host a community baby shower for more than 100 Philadelphia mothers-to-be and their families.
The community baby shower is presented by Keystone Mercy Health Plan’s WeeCare program. The purpose is to educate pregnant women on the importance of early and ongoing prenatal care as well as proper oral hygiene during pregnancy, specifically the prevention of gum disease, which can lead to an infection that causes premature births. The program will also offer information about WeeCare which supports women throughout their pregnancy and into the post-partum period, two months after delivery.
