Forrest General Hospital Supports Millennials and Gen Z into Motherhood
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (January 9, 2020) From having a newborn to raising toddlers, and every stage between, it’s often difficult to know all the answers. Rest assured Forrest General Hospital has a variety of resources to help navigate the darling chaos of motherhood.
Kristen Schroder juggles multiple roles in her family as a wife, mother, and lifestyle blogger of Our Darling Chaos. Schroder just announced the arrival of her seventh child, Bernadette Marie Schroder. Bernadette Marie was born on January 8, making Kristen a mom of seven children within eight years.
“Whether you are becoming a first-time mom or already a mom of seven, I think it’s very important to have support from your local hospital. My favorite thing about being a mom is watching my sweet baby grow and thrive, and it’s comforting to have help along the way. Mommas need to know that it’s okay to ask for help,” said Schroder.

Whether waiting to have kids, delivering naturally, or choosing to have a medicated birth, Forrest General supports families along the way. Designated as a Baby-Friendly birth facility, a highly prestigious designation by Baby-Friendly USA, Forrest General is dedicated to providing moms with encouragement of breastfeeding and the practice of family-centered care.
