The Bethlehem Fund at the CoxHealth Foundation is focused on providing for the needs of expectant mothers.

During pregnancy, high blood pressure can create health issues for mother and baby. It is important that moms-to-be monitor their condition daily and often, several times a day. A blood pressure cuff does not seem like an expensive request but when you are struggling, any expense can set you back. Physicians were finding women were not monitoring their condition and complications began to arise. Thanks to the Bethlehem Fund, the CoxHealth Foundation is able to provide free blood pressure cuffs to women with high-risk pregnancies. Thanks to our donors this simple device is helping mom’s control their blood pressure and give birth to healthy babies.
