Now, Memphis and Shelby County get attention for what they are doing to combat the epidemic of infant mortality.
The article features four women who work with or have been touched by Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
Tonya Taylor is a registered nurse with the Nurse Family Partnership.
Taylor meets with low-income first time mothers to educate and monitor their pregnancy.
Taylor said her work isn’t glamorous but it is important, “We see the moms weekly after we enroll them for four weeks, then our visits become every two weeks until they have the baby and then once they have the baby we visit them weekly again.” Taylor goes from house to house. Taylor is one of the four women featured.
