Join us for The Healthy Start Baby Shower on May 11, 2021 from 10a-12p. The Healthy Start Baby Shower will be held at George Dupuis Rec Center – Graham Brown Memorial Park (1234 E Pont Des Mouton Rd, Lafayette, LA 70507): location is public transportation friendly.

The Healthy Start Baby Shower is a special Mother’s day themed event designed to provide a baby shower for those in our community who do not have the resources to host their own while providing health education and family-centered community resources. Our outdoor baby shower will help prepare expecting mothers for the birth of their child and to celebrate the accomplishments of interconceptional women who have successfully participated in the Healthy Start program. The Healthy Start program participants have received health education, participated in home visiting case management, and demonstrated the skills learned from the Healthy Start program. The Baby Shower also gives prenatal participants encouragement and motivation to complete the program.

During the event, health education is provided to all participants as well as vendor resources and door prize giveaways. This event is a free family-friendly, community event, and fathers, children and other family members are welcomed to attend. The first 100 people will receive a free gift and lunch will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.

The Healthy State Baby Shower is sponsored by The Family Tree, Healthy Start, Healthy Blue, and Lafayette Parks and Recreation.
