About Community Baby Shower

Parenthood can be overwhelming for anyone. Whether they are studying nutrition, developmental milestones, or safe sleep, new parents have a lot to learn. What’s worse, much of the information can appear contradictory. That’s where our community—supportive friends, family, and caring neighbors— comes in.

The Community Baby Shower connects new and expectant parents experiencing economic hardship with maternal and early childhood education and resources. It also provides access to gifts, food, and friendship. Hosted by Women United, this annual celebration will help more than 300 families this year get a stronger start.
