Stork’s Nest


StorksnestcollageThe Stork’s Nest is an incentive program designed to promote prenatal care participation and healthy behaviors during pregnancy through two components – incentives and education.

Stork’s Nest clients “earn” points toward incentives, such as maternity or baby care items, through a variety of positive, health-promoting activities: attending prenatal care appointments, participating in prenatal and parent education classes, keeping appointments for well-baby visits, etc.  The Stork’s Nest prenatal and parent education sessions provide information, educational materials, and a variety of other resources and referrals that help clients take good care of themselves and their babies.

Supplies that fill the shelves at the Stork’s Nest are supported with funding from a handful of small grants (Wisconsin Energy Foundation, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority) and from donation drives (Whitnall High School and the Learning Shop) as well as from individual volunteers.

We are the largest Stork’s Nest in the Wisconsin Chapter of the March of Dimes and the first to include education and safe infant toys to promote early brain development.
