We Need a Few Good Men

... to be in Labor!

For several years, North Florida Women's Care has been a key partner with the local March of Dimes office.  As in the past few years, our CEO; Bill Hambsh is helping launch an awareness campaign for the "men".  It is called Men In Labor.

Men in Labor is a "spin off" of Jail and Bail, an event that originated with the March of Dimes over 18 years ago. Men in Labor highlight the important role of father before, during and after pregnancy. Being a dad starts before the baby is born.

Enjoy a couple pictures from this event.  

This program gets the men involved with pregnancy related issues, not to mention it is fun and memorable for everyone too.  

Each "MIL" volunteer is pregnant with an empathy belly & gown between Father's Day and Labor Day.  During this "pregnancy", they are each responsible for raising $1,000.  These funds go to help the March of Dimes continue their programs of spreading awareness of prematurity and birth defects as well as clinical research to reduce these factors.

Men in Labor is targeted towards men of all ages, professions and backgrounds who care about the health of babies and the future of our children. We know our patients have access to a few good men.  Our "GUYS" who are seriously interested in this program should contact Felina Martin at the March of Dimes office.  The phone number to call is (850) 422-3152.  We appreciate your help and look forward to sharing more information over the next few months.
