Show Your Love is a new national campaign developed by the Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative (PCHHCI). Launching on Valentine’s Day, its goal is to help women prepare for healthy pregnancies and babies by adopting healthy habits well before becoming pregnant. By adopting healthy habits, women are showing their love to their future babies and also to themselves.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), preconception health is the health of women and men during their reproductive years. As part of their preconception health, women can take steps now to protect their health and the health of the family they may want to have sometime in the future.
The Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition is pleased to be a part of this important effort, which reflects our mission to improve the health of children, childbearing women and their families in Northeast Florida.
