Born To Be is Calhoun County’s healthy babies initiative. It was developed to improve public perception and to ensure that all organizations serving pregnant women in Calhoun County are providing the same information in a consistent way.
Born To Be is intended to provide consistent messaging and resources focused on healthy pregnancies, healthy moms, healthy babies, and healthy families. The Born To Be website (www.borntobehealthy.org) is the place to go for information on Calhoun County’s maternal and infant health programs, services, and resources available. While our target population is pregnant women, their support person(s), families, and any organization that serves them may access the website. Organizations can reference our communities’ messages about various maternal and infant health topics, see what materials and resources are available for their use/distribution to clients, and where to go or who to contact for specific resources. This ensures that all organizations serving pregnant women and families in Calhoun County are providing the same information and using the same resources.
Grace Health provides leadership and administrative support for Born To Be. Grace Health’s mission is to provide quality health care with the belief that all individuals have the right to considerate service at all times, with recognition of their personal dignity. Grace Health is a member of the Maternal and Infant Health Commission of the Regional Health Alliance. Thanks to a long-term, focused and collaborative effort by many residents and organizations from across Calhoun County, we have, and continue to increase access to medical care, provide important education, and surround and support pregnant women, mothers and families. We will continue our collaboration until all infants born in Calhoun County are healthy and thriving.
