MADISONVILLE, Ky. — Bluegrass Pharmacy will offer a free 30-day supply of pre-natal vitamins to Madisonville women each month.

The new Healthy Babies Free Vitamin Program, starting in September, will help fill in nutritional gaps and will save local families hundreds of dollars per year.

Your “True Blue” Bluegrass Pharmacy wants to make it a little easier for Madisonville’s expecting mothers to get the nutrition they need. With the new Healthy Babies Free Vitamin Program, mothers-to-be get a 30-day supply each month of pre-natal vitamins, formulated to address the specific nutritional needs of expecting mothers.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that all pregnant women take 600 micrograms of folic acid and 27 milligrams of iron daily. Many pregnant women do not meet these vital recommendations. Folic acid, helps in the prevention of birth defects such as spina bifida and congenital heart disease, while iron helps greatly during delivery with making sure enough oxygen gets to the baby.

“As parents and health care professionals, we understand the importance of proper nutrition for mothers and babies. All of us at Bluegrass Pharmacy are very excited about Healthy Babies free pre-natal vitamin program”, said Pharmacist Gary Russell, Bluegrass Pharmacy.

We don’t want the cost of pre-natal vitamins prevent patients from getting the nutrition they need to have healthy babies. The Healthy Babies Free Vitamin Program offers a 30-count bottle of pre-natal vitamins at no-cost to local families each month. Register for the program at Bluegrass Pharmacy, located at 1128 North Main Street, and come back every 30 days to pick up your supply of vitamins.
