NWTH Babies Wearing Red Hats for Heart Month

News

February is American Heart Month, and babies at Northwest Texas Hosptial are helping raise awareness.

Babies born this month at Northwest will be sporting little red hats to help act as a reminder that heart health starts at birth.

“We think about heart health with adults, but babies, they can’t tell us what’s wrong. So we have to do the congenital heart screenings to make sure that they are okay, but the most important thing is that all of our moms … getting prenatal care so that we know ahead of time,” said Tiffany Pugh, newborn nursery charge nurse.

Parents are encouraged to post photos of their little ones with the hats on social media to spread awareness further.
