LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - East Texas moms-to-be have a new community resource that aims to help mom and baby be as healthy as possible. Officials with the "My 9 Months Program" say it's free to all women. The only requirements are that you have to be pregnant to participate. The program aims to provide the emotional support that moms need throughout their pregnancy.
Breanna McCulloch got an ultrasound of her baby boy Tuesday.
She's 20 weeks pregnant and is part of the "My 9 Months Program" with the Pregnancy Help Center in Lufkin.
The new program provides expecting moms with valuable resources throughout their pregnancy
Lindsey Arnold is pregnant with her second child and although she's been through this before she still finds the support at the pregnancy center valuable.
Pregnancy Center officials say they saw moms in the community needed help, emotional support and baby gifts so they stepped up to fill in the gaps.
Arnold came in to learn more about breast feeding.
The Pregnancy Center works in coordination with the mother's doctor and develops a unique monthly pregnancy plan for every mom. Any woman who is pregnant whether it's their first child or their fourth child can join the "My 9 Months Program." There is no income requirement for assistance.
