Blue Cross Complete of Michigan and Detroit Parks & Recreation to Hold Free Baby Shower Event for Detroit Community

Blue Cross Complete of Michigan and Detroit Parks & Recreations will hold the
4th Annual Baby Shower and Health Fair on Friday, March 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Northwest Activities Center in Detroit (18100 Meyers Road Detroit, MI 48235). This is a
special event for new moms, moms-to-be and children to learn about prenatal
care, healthy eating, breastfeeding and more. 

Proper pre-and-postnatal care is essential for moms and moms-to-be. Unfortunately, Michigan is ranked eighth in the nation for the highest number of maternal deaths. Blue Cross Complete is committed to increasing access to resources to help educate parents on how to achieve a healthy pregnancy and birth. 

This annual event, which attracts more than 300 community members each year, connects parents with health care providers and information to make the transition into parenthood as smooth (and healthy!) as possible. The public is invited to attend
and receive valuable resources and take part in presentations including car
seat safety and healthy/affordable cooking demonstrations. Lead and dental
screenings will also be provided with consent. Free gifts will be distributed
to everyone, while supplies last. Prize giveaways for car seats, strollers and
gift baskets will take place throughout the event. 

Organizations presenting
this year include, but are not limited to: Black Mothers Breastfeeding
Association, Kohl’s Safe 4 Kids, Matrix Human Services Head Start, Maternal Infant
Health Program providers and Mott’s Children Hospital.   

Free transportation
services for Blue Cross Complete members is available upon request. RSVP by
calling 1-844-280-9127. Walk-ins are welcome.
