Family’s holiday gathering supports moms-to-be


Rebecca and Michael Techtmann held an annual holiday party, but they didn’t want guests to bring them hostess gifts or Christmas presents. Instead, the couple asked guests to consider donating to a community cause.

This year’s party, attended by about 100 people, benefited Doylestown Health’s Della Penna Pediatric Center and the Healthy Beginnings Plus program. Healthy Beginnings Plus helps pregnant women who are uninsured or underinsured get the care they need. Services include prenatal care, delivery and postpartum checkup, provided at no cost to the women.

Guests at the Techtmann party donated more than $1,600 in gift cards and a variety of pajamas and clothing for the moms and babies. Rebecca and Michael recently dropped off the donation at the VIA Maternity Center at Doylestown Hospital.
