Community Baby Shower


ELMIRA Calling all new and expectant mothers! The Chemung County Health Department and Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network of South Central New York is proud to invite you to participate in our first annual Community Baby Shower. This will take place on Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 1:00PM to 3:00PM at Arnot Ogden Medical Center, Elmira NY.

Dozens of agencies and vendors will be on hand to answer questions about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, baby safety and more! The Community Baby Shower is an opportunity for pregnant women and their partners, as well as new parents, to get connected to valuable resources in the community. Plus, everyone will have a chance to win prizes!

The event is FREE and open to all pregnant women/families and parents of young children.  The event is an effort of the Chemung Maternal Child Health Coalition.  The Coalition was established in 2016 by Mothers and Babies to bring together those who had an interest in having a positive impact on the health of Mothers & Babies in Chemung County.  Members include Arnot Health, CIDS, WIC, Southern Tier Pediatrics, Twin Tiers Breastfeeding Network, Child and Family Services, the Health Dept., and Mothers and Babies.  Members meet every other month to identify ways that they can work together to improve birth outcomes and reduce disparities.
