ROSEMONT, PA, (February 5, 2019) — Duchesnay USA, a pharmaceutical company specializing in women’s health, is pleased to announce its continued support of the Mobile Mom Squad, an organization that provides on-site health care, education and support to underprivileged pregnant women. Founded by obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Lisa Masterson, former co-host of “The Doctors” and creator of Health in Heels with Dr. Lisa, the Mobile Mom Squad assists women in need in the US, as well as in several developing countries.
Duchesnay USA, makers of Mteryti® and Mteryti® folic 5 prenatal/postnatal vitamin supplements, has been a proud sponsor of the Mobile Mom Squad since its launch in 2017. At that time, Duchesnay USA donated 2,000 boxes of its uniquely formulated supplements to Pasadena County’s (California) Elizabeth House, a non-profit residential shelter for women and children. This initial sponsorship was followed by additional donations of 10,000 units to help support other organizations and shelters across the country.
“We are grateful for the support and generous donations from companies like Duchesnay USA that help us achieve our goal of making a significant difference in the health of pregnant women by providing the necessary prenatal care, education and tools for a safe delivery,” said Dr. Lisa Masterson. “Vitamins are huge to the health of the mother and baby, with folic acid being a particularly important supplement that can help prevent birth defects.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all women of reproductive age consume folic acid daily to help prevent birth defects. This stems from the fact that nearly half of all pregnancies in the U.S. are unplanned and that birth defects occur early on in pregnancy (3-4 weeks after conception), before most women know they are pregnant.
“Duchesnay USA is pleased to continue its partnership with the Mobile Mom Squad, an initiative that benefits women nationwide that do not have access to prenatal care,” said Dean Hopkins, General Manager of Duchesnay USA. “By donating Mteryti®, we help provide women in need with the vitamins and minerals they need before, during and after pregnancy and which they may not be able to get from their diets alone.”
