Free Car Seats at BabyLove


Even before I opened BabyLove, I worked at a local hospital, and one of the things I would do is teach many of the classes we held for people who were on UCare or MHP. They both had car seat programs where members on PMAPs through the State of MN could get car seats.

Fast forward to now.

I haven’t ever advertised it, but I am a contracted provider for people on HealthPartners PMAPs and MN Care to provide both car seat education and a free car seat in my office by appointment.

What, free car seat? Yep!

Women on a HealthPartners PMAP or MN Care plan who are at least 6 months pregnant and children on HealthPartners PMAP or MN Care plan from ages 0 to 8 are eligible to get one car seat during their lifetime as a member benefit. To get a car seat, either the pregnant person or the parent of an eligible child (I’ve never had a child call for himself, but I guess it could happen) calls me to schedule an appointment. The easiest availability is during the day, but I do have some limited evening appointments available. An appointment takes about 45 minutes. During the appointment, they are taught how to correctly install and use their car seat, both by video and hands-on demonstration. Unfortunately, I do not actually install the seat. When we’re done, they leave with the car seat or seats in hand.

Easy peasy!

So tell your friends, family, strangers…..if they have a HealthPartners PMAP or MN Care plan and fall into one of the two groups above….we can get them a seat! Just call me, Veronica, at 651-200-3343 to schedule an appointment.

That’s all for today, folks!

Opening BabyLove in September of 2011 has allowed me to build a space where all families can come to get good information in a caring, welcoming environment. I have found that not only do I love teaching more than ever, but I also really love running a business. Hopefully my passion for every aspect of BabyLove shines through.
I live in Richfield with my husband, and I am a mother of a two great children. When I can steal a few free moments, I love to go on adventures with my family, cook, garden, thrift, can, and craft.
