EAST ORANGE, NJ – On Saturday, May 5th  at 10 am Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Gamma Omicron Zeta chapter will unveil its Stork’s Nest location. #GOZStorksNest is located at the Bessie Mae Women’s Health Center at 220 S Harrison St, East Orange, NJ. A cooperative project of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and the March of Dimes Foundation, for more than forty years, Stork’s Nest aims to increase the number of women receiving early and regular prenatal care to prevent cases of low birth-weight, premature births, and infant deaths.

“Our Stork’s Nest Committee worked tirelessly to bring this to the community. For 65 years we’ve been committed to the serving Essex County and this is just another way we are working to help other people excel,”  said chapter president Salaine Atkins-Little. Stork’s Nest Chairperson, Elisha K. Tard shared her excitement “We are so happy to finally open this space. We invite the community and council  members to tour the facility and learn more about the Stork’s Nest.”

The Stork’s Nest run by Gamma Omicron Zeta will service all of Essex County. The program is designed to promote prenatal care participation and encourage healthy behaviors during pregnancy through two components-incentives and education. Stork’s Nest clients “earn” points toward incentives such as maternity or baby care items through a variety of positive, health-promoting activities: attending prenatal visits, participating in prenatal education classes, stopping at-risk behaviors such as smoking cigarettes and consuming alcoholic beverages, reducing stress, etc.
