About 2021 Antepartum Mother's Day Campaign

Most soon-to-be moms anticipate that exciting moment when they will go into labor and rush to the hospital to meet their new baby. No one pictures moving into the hospital for up to 14 weeks to help prevent a premature labor -- But that is the reality for women every day in the Antepartum unit at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. 

Our highly trained Antepartum team cares for high-risk pregnancies and women with post-partum complications. It is the kind of unit that you may not know it exists until you or a loved one needs it. This Mother's Day, we are introducing you to the patients, caregivers and needs of this special department. If we raise $10,000, we will be able to check every item off their current wish list. Will you help? 

"I always tell anyone who will listen the Antepartum department is the 'forgotten moms' of our city. They are literally fighting each day for their lives and their children's lives. These moms deserve programs and services to help them grow and thrive during the most difficult, uncomfortable and scary situation you can be in as a pregnant mother." 

- Michelle Epling, former Antepartum patient
