We have partnered with the following medical facilities to distribute sleep sacks and safe sleep information to all parents of newborns in Menominee County –
- Aurora Medical Center- Bay Area
- Dickinson Memorial Hospital
- OSF Women’s Center
- Bellin Generations Clinic
If you delivered at a different location, adopted a baby, or are fostering a newborn and live in Menominee County, please contact us at 906-863-5665 ext. 1018.
