Disaster preparedness is important for pregnant moms and families with infants

Are you a pregnant woman, or a parent with an infant? Do you know what to do in case of a disaster? Emergencies and disasters can be stressful, especially if you are pregnant or caring for an infant. Making plans ahead of time and knowing what to do when a disaster occurs can help keep you safe during an emergency.

Our new fact sheet series from APHA's Get Ready campaign and the March of Dimes provides basic, easy-to-read information on what you need to know before, during and after a disaster or other emergency. Developed with the March of Dimes, the fact sheets include general information as well as tips for specific disasters, such as wildfires, hurricanes and tornadoes. Read and download the fact sheets, check out our Q&A with the March of Dimes and listen to our podcast.
