Heartbeat of Toledo helps new parents

Are you a new or expectant parent who could use some help with needed baby items? Heartbeat of Toledo has you covered. Pat Todak, executive director of the pregnancy help center, explains, “For parents with an immediate need, we offer emergency diapers and formula.”

A newborn baby basket full of sleepers, onesies, outfits, blankets, diapers, a handmade quilt and more is provided along with classes about pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. Parents earn points each class they complete, to be used at the center’s baby boutique which stocks everything from diapers, formula and baby food to strollers, high chairs, car seats, toys and more.

Heartbeat has two locations and each offers group and one-on-one parenting classes and has a baby boutique. For more information, call 419-241-9131 (Sylvania location) or
