    Community Baby Shower Increases Awareness of Maternal-child Health Issues

    The Community Baby Shower is a March of Dimes project to increase awareness of maternal-child health issues and accept the donation of gently used and new baby items.  The donated items are given as incentives through community agencies to encourage women to seek appropriate prenatal care for themselves as well as well-child follow up care for their babies.

    Community Baby Showers are held throughout the state as March of Dimes projects to promote early and regular prenatal care for all women, particularly those at high risk for complications, and well-baby care.  A secondary goal of this event is to raise public awareness about the problem of prematurity and the March of Dimes mission and services that work to give every baby a healthy start.  The baby showers are model of public, private and community cooperation. It is an open model that allows for adaptation according to demographics, circumstances, needs and resources of the community.

    The Community Baby Shower design is uncomplicated.  Baby items are donated by the community and distributed through a network of social service agencies and health care providers as incentives to encourage women to seek appropriate health care for themselves and their babies.  Publicity for the shower includes information about the importance of early and regular prenatal care, well-baby care, lifestyle factors that can affect a pregnancy and the need for the donations.

    If your organization or agency is interested in applying for consideration to receive donations as a benefiting agency please contact your local March of Dimes program staff.
