Nothing says “moms’ first” like a baby shower to celebrate their growing families—whether it’s their first pregnancy or fourth. No matter where they are or what their situation, we’ll honor one of their greatest milestones by giving them a shower they’ll always remember.
Being far away from friends and family during the birth of a new baby can be tough for military families. Recognizing this concern, March of Dimes created Mission: Healthy Baby®, a baby shower program specifically for military moms that provides free pregnancy and newborn health information, support services and donated gifts to help them have one less thing to worry about.
While in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), parents never get to take a break—they’re constantly worried about their babies. That’s why March of Dimes brings baby showers to them, using this opportunity to focus on the parents, shower them with gifts and attention and celebrate them and their new baby.
We don’t only serve families in their moments of crisis—we love celebrating and honoring all parents-to-be, no matter who or where they are. So, we’re taking this opportunity to do just that, showering parents in communities across the U.S. with gifts, baby supplies and more!
