I’m so excited to be a part of this webinar. Living in Texas, I have often been affected by disaster. I watched thousands of displaced people evacuate to Texas after Hurricane Katrina, and approximately one month later, my family was forced to evacuate when Hurricane Rita was eminent. I was 8 months pregnant at the time. Now, as a labor and delivery nurse, I worry about the needs of pregnant women, and women in the immediate postpartum period and their newborns. How can families prepare? What precautions can they take? Pregnant women are especially vulnerable if displaced by disaster. Register for the webinar for free at the link below.
Get ready for an exciting conversation on emergency preparedness for the entire family, presented by four women who have one title in common—mother. These mothers and well-known bloggers will offer tips, actions, and insights on how to get your family prepared for disasters. Join the conversation via webinar on Thursday, April 16 at 1 PM Central Time.
The webinar, “Easy Ways to Help Prepare Your Family for Disasters,” will feature preparedness information from:
- Shelle Wells, blogger for Preparedness Mama;
- Erica Mueller, blogger for Mom Prepares;
- Tanya Ferraro, blogger for Bigger than Myself; and
- Shelly Lopez-Gray, blogger for Adventures of a Labor Nurse.
