Tonya Lee Speaks on A Healthy Baby Begins with You campaign

Every Year, 8,000 African American children die during their first year of life. 8000. As a mother, this really concerns me. Our babies are dying at 3 times the rate of white babies before their first birthday. Our children need us to take action and I need your help. Take care of your health before, during, and after pregnancy. Get prenatal care and put your baby to sleep on his back.

A healthy baby really does begin with you.
