MATERNITY CARE COALITION
August 1, 2011

This summer I worked at Cribs for Kids (C4K) in the Maternity Care Coalition. I learned new facts about safe sleep and SIDS prevention for babies that I did not previously know. Additionally, I learned how to use this information and explain it to our clients during home visits, office pick-ups, and workshops. Along with this education, we provide Pack 'n Plays to families that cannot otherwise afford to purchase a safe place for their baby to sleep.

Everyone immediately welcomed me on my first day at C4K. I was treated as a C4K advocate and not just a summer intern. I was able to share the responsibilities of all of the team members. I was able to learn and do most of the components of the program from taking calls off our hotline, enrolling clients, scheduling their appointment, and providing the education. This was a wonderful experience for me because I was able to enhance communication skills with the clients that I will need as I advance in my career.

The Great!

It is so amazing to see the families grateful for the service we have provided.
