39% of South Dakota children live in low income families.
The Teddy Bear Den inspires economically disadvantaged pregnant women in the Sioux Falls Community to seek early and regular prenatal care. Our entire program is geared toward limited income pregnant women, pregnant immigrant women, and pregnant teens as they are least likely to receive adequate care during pregnancy. We provide incentives and rewards to limited income women in exchange for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our approach has helped over 31,000 pregnant women.
