Mothers who complete a continuum of prenatal care and deliver at Green County General Hospital will receive a Sweet Dreams Baby Bundle. This program is designed to combat Green County’s high infant mortality rate. This consists of a large, heavy-duty decorated cardboard box, lined with a water-proof mattress, cover and sheet that is designed to promote safe sleep for new infants. Other items included in the box are onesies, diapers, blankets and educational material covering tobacco cessation and safe sleep practices.
