Stork’s Nest is a collaborative venture between the March of Dimes and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. It is an incentive-based program designed to reward pregnant women with points for keeping their doctor appointments and attending the March of Dimes prenatal care curriculum-based classes.
Stork’s Nests are located in almost every state in the nation. Once registered, the points earned may be redeemed at any Stork’s Nest in the United States for maternity or baby care items. Points are good for 18 months after the birth of the baby. However, points can only be earned while pregnant and breastfeeding.
The Stork’s Nest Program has served Washington, DC since February 1986. Originally, it partnered with the DC Department of Public Health who referred pregnant women to the Nest for incentives and classes. Over the last 30 years, the Stork’s Nest has operated in partnership with Unity Health Care and continues to serve the District of Columbia.
