COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – New parents have a chance to learn more about health care options for their children.

The Well Care Baby Blitz and Diaper Day took place Friday at the Valley Health Care Clinic on Fort Benning Road.

It started at nine Friday morning and will end at 11 p.m. Friday.

People will be educated on the signs that something might be wrong with you and your child.

Participants received free diapers and onesies along with a tour of the facility.

"There are so many pregnant patients that are not receiving prenatal care. We want to give them incentives to come out so they will receive prenatal care and get the education they need," said Dr. Kamesha Harbison at Valley Health Care Clinic.

The is the second year for the Baby Blitz event.
