The organization organizes community baby showers for new mothers and mothers-to-be

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Most mothers remember the joy and fun of a baby shower hosted by friends and family.

But many moms never experience a real baby shower. That’s why an organization organizes baby showers for hundreds of new and expectant mothers in different neighborhoods.

Beverly’s Birthdays have a component called Beverly’s Babies. The Itty Bitty Birthday Cheer program celebrates the first birthday by hosting free community baby showers. The most recent was at First Presbyterian Church in Duquesne.

Darla Sherlock said: “We partner with all the Family Support Centers in Allegheny County. There are 26 of them. And they invite them here. We also put it on social media and any mom can sign up. .”

Events include all traditional shower activities like food, games, and giveaways. But there are also resources and information available from local agencies and healthcare organizations.

“Everyone here is so welcoming and kind, and it’s so much information you can get while you’re here. It’s a lot of fun,” Beverly Haris said.
