The St. Marys Chapter of the Ohio Child Conservation League’s generous gift to purchase two new bassinets supports the effort of JTDMH’s Birthing Center replace all bassinets that are currently in use.  The new bassinets provide an updated design allowing the ability to bring the mother and baby close, with ease, regardless of bed height, and at a time when touch is so important for bonding.  All bassinets in the Birthing Center will be replaced and of the new design.

The OOC gift is also to being used to purchase two new glider chairs for the Ambulatory Surgery Center.  These comfortable chairs allow a parent to hold and rock their child during the recovery phase following surgery to help decrease their anxiety and to provide comfort.

The local chapter of the Ohio Child Conservation League has provided funds back to the children of the St. Marys community in many ways for more than 50 years.
