Are you expecting? Do you have a baby up to 3 months old?

Join us for our first ever community baby shower on October 4 at the Grand Rapids Salvation Army Kroc Center!

This community baby shower is a free event for expectant moms and parents of infants less than 3 months old.

Connect with other families and the resources you need for you and your baby.

There will be lunch (thanks to our generous food sponsor Blue Cross Complete of Michigan), raffles, gifts

and mini-seminars to learn about topics like breastfeeding, nutrition in pregnancy, car seats, infant care 101 and more.

PLEASE NOTE: Childcare is not available during the event.

  • If you are bringing a child to the event who is 12 months or younger who must stay with you during the event (either on your lap or in a car seat), you are welcome to bring that child.
  • Children over age 1 will not be admitted at the door for the Baby Shower. You will need to seek alternate childcare arrangements. We cannot make any exceptions.

So we are able to serve as many moms and parents as possible, only one registration is allowed per household. A household may include one adult (Mom, Dad, Grandma, etc.).

THANK YOU to our sponsors: Blue Cross Complete of Michigan, Healthy Kent, Meridian, Molina Healthcare, Priority Health and United Healthcare. Without your generous support, this event wouldn't be possible!

For any questions or concerns, please email info@cherryhealth.com
