Fidelis Care Reveals Top Baby Names Among its Members for 2015

NEW YORK, N.Y., Feb. 4, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fidelis Care announced today that Jacob and Sophia were the most popular names among more than 36,000 babies who became members in 2015.

To celebrate its youngest members and highlight important health and developmental milestones during a baby's first year, Fidelis Care will launch #watchusgrow, a social media campaign that will provide helpful tips and information in a fun and interesting way for all new parents.

"A baby's first year is an exciting time, but one that is also filled with questions," explained Sanjiv Shah, MD, MPH, Fidelis Care's Chief Medical Officer. "As a health plan, we want to do everything we can to help new parents and their babies have the healthiest start possible in life. The #watchusgrow campaign will encourage parents as they go through the first 12 months with their babies. From reminders about checkups and immunizations to tips about safety and feeding, Fidelis Care is here to help every step of the way."

Scheduled to launch in February on social channels including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, #watchusgrow will present the information from a unique perspective - the baby's point of view. "From day one, babies are ready to learn about the world around them," added Dr. Shah. "This is the best time to build a strong foundation for the years to come."

Expectant and new parents may visit or visit Fidelis Care social media channels on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to learn more about #watchusgrow.
