OB Implements Brain Bags

July 1, 2022

Our OB Department recently implemented Brain Bags available through the Studer Community Institute. Brain Bags were started as a way for parents to encourage early brain development and literacy skills in their babies.

90 – 95% of a child’s brain growth happens by age 5, before they even start kindergarten. In order to maximize a child’s brain development and readiness for school, it’s important to start early.

Items include a children’s book and reading guide, activity guide, language enrichment toy, and baby steps book. The Brain Bags are designed to grow a baby’s brain, and are one more way we are caring for the whole patient.

The links below provide additional information on the importance of communicating and reading to children starting at infancy.
