PROTECT YOUR BABY FROM THE VERY BEGINNING: GET

ACCURATE HEALTH INFORMATION FROM DAY ONE

Whether you’re already expecting a baby or planning a pregnancy in the near future, your daydreams likely include a healthy, happy newborn. All the exciting milestones of pregnancy include choices, from names to nursery themes. Making early health decisions is also part of protecting your baby from Day One. 

 

Helping your baby get the best possible start means protecting her from the very beginning. Information about the medical choices you will be offered during pregnancy, after your baby’s birth and at those first check-ups is vital. Choosing an excellent obstetrician, then selecting your baby’s pediatrician to help guide your decisions gives you a science-based source where you can ask questions and get expert advice. 

 

Information from the Oklahoma Alliance for Healthy Families (OAHF)’s Day One campaign is presented with the help of local doctors. Knowing what to expect when you’re expecting and being informed about upcoming medical decisions is our goal. Find out the latest about early health screenings, what will happen at the hospital on the big day and how vaccinations can protect your baby before she goes home.

Cheers to you and your healthy baby!

Vaccinate on time and on schedule

Vaccinating on time and on schedule helps set your baby up for a lifetime of good health. Childhood diseases like polio, mumps and measles are mostly illnesses left in the past thanks to science. Alternate vaccination schedules have no proven benefit and just delay that needed protection.
