Barre, VT—Community National Bank (CNB) Montpelier Personal Banker Jennifer Garrett and Teller Malia Matheson recently visited Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice’s (CVHHH) Maternal-Child Health team at CVHHH’s headquarters on Granger Road in Berlin. The bankers delivered diapers, wipes and educational books and toys purchased at Woodbury Mountain Toys in Montpelier for the Maternal-Child Health Program. The items were accompanied by a donation from CNB of $2,500.00.


CVHHH’s Maternal-Child Health program’s purpose is to help mothers have the best pregnancy, birth and parenting experience possible. The program’s Registered Nurses are reliable and knowledgeable, and understand the emotions that pregnant women and new mothers are experiencing. Some of the services provided include lactation support, nutrition education, skilled nursing care, coordinating care, pediatric palliative care and more. Katy Leffel, RN, BSN, IBCLC, who oversaw CVHHH’s team until mid-October, explains, “Ours is an evidenced-based program which has been carefully designed and implemented. One of the nicest perks we offer is through the Strong Families Vermont Nurse Home Visiting Program. This initiative allows our nurses to make regular home visits so that families can stay home with their newborns instead of having to come in for office visits.”
