  • What is one infant safety practice that you plan to use that you have learned by working at the Coalition? The ABCs of Safe Sleep!!
  • How do you take care of yourself while being pregnant? I go on a lot of walks and plan to enroll in prenatal yoga classes.
  • Is there one bit of wisdom about parenting that you plan on using that you received from your mother, a friend, or relative? Oh Man! I’ve heard so much since I found out I was pregnant so its hard to choose ONE thing. I guess it would have to be to make sure I spend quality time with my child.

Due: June 2015

  • What is one infant safety practice that you plan to use that you have learned by working at the Coalition? One infant safety practice that I plan to implement with my baby is Back to sleep is best.
  • How do you take care of yourself while being pregnant? While being pregnant, I take care of myself and my baby by taking a raw all natural prenatal Vitamin. It gives me energy as well as supplements the baby with additional nutrients.
  • Is there one bit of wisdom about parenting that you plan on using that you received from your mother, a friend, or relative? I plan on working hard to becoming a better person mentally and physically so I can enjoy my baby to the fullest. Pregnancy can be very taxing and draining on the female body, restoring my postbaby body to better than my prebaby body is a goal!

Artillia Sampson, Administrative Assistant

Due: May 2015

  • What is one infant safety practice that you plan to use that you have learned by working at the Coalition? The safety practice that I learned while working at the Coalition is coping with crying. All babies cry and it is ok to become frustrated as long as you deal with it properly. It does not mean that you as a parent is doing anything wrong.
  • How do you take care of yourself while being pregnant? During my pregnancy I attended all of my prenatal visits and took my vitamins. I also consulted with my doctor when ever I felt uncomfortable and needed advice.
  • Is there one bit of wisdom about parenting that you plan on using that you received from your mother, a friend, or relative?  The one bit of wisdom I plan on using was given to me by my mother. She encourages me that babies do not come with instructions and in their eyes we are perfect even if we put on their diaper backwards.
