SAN ANTONIO - Being a new mom can be overwhelming, and there are many resources available that can help you!

Metro Health has free resources for you if you're expecting or already have kids.

Kori Eberle, Healthy Start program manager, said, "Metro Health has tons of resources for moms and kids. We have our WIC program that helps pregnant moms, and we have Baby Cafe that helps moms breastfeed."

"In my program, we want to educate and talk about family planning as early as we can with our youth," Eberle said.
