The Moms2B program was founded in 2010 by pediatrician, clinical researcher and professor, Dr. Patricia Gabbe and infant medical health specialist and program director, Twinkle French Schottke. Its goal is to make a difference one baby at a time, and in seven years, it has welcomed hundreds of new babies into the central Ohio community.
Moms2B provides weekly education and support sessions to promote healthy lifestyle choices and link Moms with support services. Their education topics focus on: breastfeeding, child development, family planning, goal setting, labor and delivery, maternal-infant health, positive parenting, reproductive health, safe sleep, and more.
