The obstetricians at OB GYN Associates provide prenatal care while also focusing on further stages of life for babies. Through their support of the North Liberty Community Library’s Womb Literacy initiative, OB GYN Associates is developing more successful children in our community.

The Womb Literacy initiative’s mission is to help parents-to-be establish a daily reading routine before the birth of their baby. There are many benefits of reading aloud to young children, including vocabulary building and language development. Studies show children are more successful in school, work, and life when frequently read to at home.

The Womb Literacy initiative benefits expecting parents, too! Most importantly, the habit of daily reading is established before the baby is born, making it easier to continue after the baby arrives. Additionally, the initiative increases new parents’ confidence as their baby’s first educator through three programs:  

  1. Connecting expecting families with local businesses and community resources at the annual Baby Fair.
  2. Building baby’s home library through Read to the Bump
  3. Providing education on early childhood development through the Stork Time Story Podcast.

OB GYN Associates works to ensure a healthy baby upon delivery. Their partnership with the Womb Literacy initiative ensures more Iowa City area babies grow into confident, successful adults.
