We were very busy this summer with our programming and had some staffing changes. We said goodbye to our Pre/Post Natal Worker, Courtney as she left to pursue other opportunities. We will miss her and wish her the best! We want to assure everyone that we will still offer limited pre/post natal services. However, at this time, EarlyON will be taking a break for the month of September to revamp our program to offer better services. We will continue to support you in any way we can. Please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
