The Stork's Nest

The Stork's Nest is a national project for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in conjunction with the March of Dimes. The goal of this project is to encourage low income mothers to get pre/post-natal care. Participants in this program can earn points by attending educational sessions and keeping all appointments such as doctors and/or clinic, WIC, and Social Services. Points may be exchanged for baby items to include clothes, papers, and other baby essentials. The educational component to the Stork's Nest provides women with valuable information to have a healthy baby. Workshops such as proper eating during pregnancy, essential vitamins, breastfeeding, warning signs, genetic diseases, preparing the home for the baby, what to expect after the infant is born, and other topics are offered.

Beta Theta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has partnered with the South Norfolk Health Center to offer the Stork’s Nest program. For more information, contact Ms. Stevalynn Adams, Stork’s Nest Chair at 757-823-2658. The location of the Stork’s Nest Office is:
