Baby Steps

Screen shot 2014-11-04 at 10.01.38 AMWhile many of us have a solid foundation of support from professionals, friends, and family, some new mothers do not have access to resources that will help them prepare their lives for the transition into parenthood. Their future, and more importantly, that of their unborn child, is at risk given their lack of access to critical education and essential items to support a newborn child.

The 2017-2018 Junior League of Evanston-North Shore (JLE-NS) New Member Class will host the 8th annual Baby Steps shower, an event that will positively impact the lives of 15 underprivileged families and their newborn babies.  In April, through our partnership with the social workers at North Shore University Health System’s Perinatal Family Support Center, the New Member Class will shower each new mother with items essential for newborns and deliver educational presentations on several key topics, including post-partum depression, lactation, and feeding essentials.  The classes goal is to raise funds to provide each mother with items including car seats, strollers, bathtubs, diapers, wipes, and many more to ease the costs associated with a newborn baby.
