Tune in to KSFR-FM 101.1 on Saturday, September 17th at 2:30pm, for an interview with Linnea Morelos, Program Director, and ¡Qué Cute! Healthy Baby Program Low Birth Weight Prevention Advocate Ana Morelos.
In Santa Fe County 9.4 percent of babies are born prematurely or at low birth weight. This compares to the statewide average of 8.8 percent. Low birth weight can be due to expectant mothers' sress levels, a health condition, or as a result of drinking, smoking, or other substance use abuse during the pregnancy. Babies born at low birth weight are at risk for physical and/or developmental disabilities. Through Las Cumbres' ¡Qué Cute! Healthy Baby Program, mothers-to-be will be offered connections to resources to help them have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Services are available for free. Contact Ana directly at 505.901.1027 or by calling the Santa Fe offices at 505.955.0410.
