My Baby's Breath
We are working with the local high schools and the county social services to identify pregnant teenagers and adult women who are drinking alcohol during their pregnancy. Once identified, we provide incentivized monitored breathalyzers to help them refrain from drinking alcohol during the remainder of their pregnancies.
With our current funding we can provide this program to three pregnant women monthly. We are excited with the success of this program. Since the program began six months ago, five pregnant woman who were drinking alcohol before going on the program refrained from drinking alcohol for the entire time they were on the program! The success is documented, accountable success!
We are asking for your financial support. The county social services supervisor and the local alternative high school principal have indicated there is a greater need for this strategy than we can currently accommodate. Their estimates indicate we could have up to ten devices being monitored continually in this one county. With each pregnancy being monitored up to seven months, this would mean our program in one county would be impacting up to 20 or more pregnancies a year. Just think how many unborn children this will impact when we can replicate this program across the state and nation!
The costs of the program include the lease of the breathalyzers, the three to four time a day monitoring, incentives tied to the monitoring, and the administration of the program. Every $5 you donate gives one unborn baby another day of alcohol-free fetal development!
