Masks on Mom

On May 11, 2020,  the North Central Illinois AWHONN Chapter co-coordinators, Mary Ann Liner and Susie Swain, and Chapter member and AWHONN IL Secretary/Treasurer, Mary Wheeler, presented 100 reusable cloth face masks to the Family Birthing Center at OSF HealthCare at Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  On hand to accept this donation was Cindy Martin, Director of Womens Services and Lisa Smith, Manager of Labor and Delivery. The aim of donation is to ensure that pregnant moms in Central Illinois have access to masks during this COVID-19 pandemic.
