Term Community Baby Showers
Code PH-6100.1800-150
Definition Local community charitable organizations that help low-income expectant and new parents prepare for the arrival of their new baby by providing them with essential items every parent and new baby need including diapers, wipes, diaper ointments, shampoo, infant formula, teethers, vaporizors, infant carriers, baby bouncers, strollers, boppy pillows, quiet toys and new clothes. The programs may also connect new and expectant parents experiencing economic hardship with maternal and early childhood intervention and education, and the resources they need to give their little one a stronger start. Neighbors and other residents of the community generally buy items for the occasion or donate money to purchase them and some events may include a virtual online celebration in which friends and family participate.
