Expecting families are searching for guidance and healthcare providers know that supporting couples through this journey is necessary and important work.
In 2009, The Birthplace at Dupont Hospital contacted April Beach, founder of Baby Planner, Inc. and asked if a baby planning program could be created for their hospital. Due to fierce local competition by another medical center, The Birthplace at Dupont wanted to offer their expecting patients something truly unique but also a program that could be most helpful during such an exciting and stressful time for parents.
Nationally recognized industry pioneers from Baby Planner, Inc. developed the Baby Savvy® pilot program under the hospital branded name “Welcome Baby!” Through this program, Hospital designated baby consultants offer invaluable expertise through classes, group meetings, private coaching, online resources and much more.
Within the first year, The Dupont Hospital’s “Welcome Baby!” program welcomed thousands of new parents including over 200 attendees in their first “Baby Dream Gear” Baby Savvy® class. The hospital accomplished their goals for exceptional, complete patient care and are now positioned as the industry leader in their market. The “Welcome Baby!” program continues to grow with consulting and program expansion support from Baby Planner, Inc.
