Oh baby!

NYU Langone-Brooklyn, in collaboration with Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus, held its traditional event for expectant mothers on Thursday, December 7, at Harbor Hill Neighborhood Center, 5613 Second Avenue, treating them to a fun and educational baby shower.

The baby shower served as an educational resource for moms to help address many pregnancy-related matters.

“Our community is so important to us and this is just one way we can show our appreciation,” said Larry McReynolds, executive director of the Family Health Centers (FHC) at NYU Langone, the event host. “We hope all the attendees enjoyed their gifts and learned some valuable safety tips to ensure their growing family stays healthy.”

Moms-to-be met with FHC health experts to discuss topics such as breast feeding, baby safety, teeth and mouth care, injury and poison prevention, and more. FHC teams including dental, women’s health, pediatrics, along with representatives of the New York City Department of Transportation and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, were on hand to share best practices and answer questions.

Thanks to contributions from the GOOD+ Foundation, an organization founded in 2001 that has donated almost 35 million items to a national network of over 155 antipoverty programs, all moms-to-be received a decorative canvas bin filled with baby care items. In addition, nursery décor items including a baby rocker, a plush baby seat, and a tummy time mat were raffled off to attendees.

The New York City Department of Transportation donated two car seats that were also raffled off.

Refreshments were provided courtesy of FHC and Kisha Anderer, a community supporter of the program.

“Together with our partners, we have helped improve positive outcomes for families,” said NYU Langone-Brooklyn.
