Mama To Mama baby shower & dessert reception:
November 15 @ 8 p.m.
Commonwealth Bank & Trust, St. Matthews
Birth Care Network is excited to announce our annual charity baby shower event benefiting Mama To Mama, a local non-profit organization designed to increase social support and access to resources for all mothers in an effort to ease the transition into motherhood and promote healthy parenting practices that are sustainable for families, our community and environment. Mama To Mama supports local mothers in need with weekly parent-child classes, moms’ groups, baby carriers, nursing supplies, and cloth diapers. Over the next few years, they plan to add birth and postpartum support to their list of services. This organization is a tremendous gift and resource to the local community of mothers, and we are excited to support their efforts by helping them give back to mamas this holiday season.
For this year’s charity event, we ask BCN professionals and interested members of the community to donate items from the wish list below to Mama To Mama in support of mothers at the Freedom House, which is run by the local chapter of Volunteers for America. The baby shower and dessert potluck is open to the public and begins at 8 p.m., immediately following the BCN members-only Thanksgiving potluck. Please bring your donations, along with a dessert if you’d like, to the Community Room of Commonwealth Bank & Trust, located at 286 N. Hubbards Ln. in St. Matthews (see map).

- Hygiene products (adult & child)
- Baby furniture (for when mothers exit the program)
