Video: Community Baby Shower celebrates new and expecting moms

On Wednesday, April 16, United Way of the Greater Seacoast welcomed over 30 moms and their families to The Works in Somersworth, NH for an afternoon of food, education and gifts at the Community Bay Shower .

Nine community organizations were available to talk about resources, Mallory Parkington, a professional photographer from Portsmouth, donated her time and equipment to take family portraits and throughout the day three educational sessions took place (Car Seat Installation and Safety Tips, Prenatal Yoga and Important of Early Literacy).

Gift baskets, packed with baby necessities like diapers and onesies and bottles and assorted lotions and ointments, were handed out at the end of the festivities. Over 50 volunteers powered the event, headlined by members of the Women’s Leadership Council.
