On Tuesday July 26th Harboring Hearts joined efforts with the Mount Sinai Pediatrics Team to host a “Fetal Heart Population” pop-up event. The Fetal Heart Population consisted of a panel from Mount Sinai, personalized care packages for the families, a lunch-in, and arts & crafts activities for children.
The Mount Sinai team on the panel consisted of a diverse group of experts, including physicians and lactation consultants who provided key advice and personal experience to pregnant mothers and those with newborns. In addition to the panel, nutritionist and first time mother Peggy Kotsopoulos joined us to provide her personal experience with congenital heart issues.
Our care packages for mothers and children included Peggy’s book, healthy snack bars, protein powder, a Terri coupon, bandanas, soap, hand sanitizer, baby bottles, baby bibs, baby wash clothes, and much much more! Thank you to Vega, Terri, Watermelon Water for generously donating and contributing to our care packages. The families were very delighted to receive them and put them to use!
We are very excited to already start planning the next Fetal Heart Population event at Mount Sinai in November! Stay tuned for more details so you can join us next time. Thank you to everyone who made the event possible, and for making it a big success!
