Tiffany Walker // Car Seat Program
Reid’s Mother Baby Care Center staff realizes care for their patients goes beyond the birth. They want to be sure their mothers and babies have what they need when leaving the hospital. Sometimes that includes a car seat.
Carlo and Tiffany Walker welcomed their second baby girl into the world October 7th – Candace. They had a car seat from their first daughter, but realized it was not up to current standards. The one they had for five years was no longer considered safe. “We were going to use it until we could get another one,” Tiffany said.
“We do not want to send any child home without knowing they will be safe,” said perinatal educator and nurse Lacrisha Whitley. “Thankfully, the Foundation through the Community Benefit Program supplies car seats for families like the Walkers who need it.”
After a few questions, the nursing staff was able to provide a new car seat. “It made me feel good,” Tiffany said. “A lot of people have the stress of having a baby and worrying how to get them home.”
Reid Foundation allows community members and employees to support this important program through the Special Interest fund. In the past year, 83 car seats were provided to Reid patients.
“It is definitely a good program to support,” Tiffany said. “It would be helping several families and babies in the area.”
