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 21,500 pregnant women.
The Teddy Bear Den is a unique program. In Sioux Falls, there are no other incentive programs that help limited income pregnant women.
Our Mission is to promote healthier pregnancies, healthier babies, and a healthier community.
Our incentive program provides referrals, education, and essential items to pregnant women, teens, new parents, and their families. We encourage local low income pregnant women to put themselves and the health of their children at the top of the list.
