DMC Harper University Hospital and Hutzel Women’s Hospital is hosting its Annual Community Baby Shower. The Baby Shower, hosted by WWJ 950 Health Reporter Sean Lee, will take place Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., at the former Hutzel Women’s Hospital building located at 4707 St. Antoine in the Auditorium.
Thousands of babies are born at DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital each year. Unfortunately, many of the women who deliver at Hutzel, for various reasons, do not have the infant items that they critically need for their newborns at the time of birth. This event will benefit future newborns who are delivered at Hutzel Hospital who but-for this program, would not have essential new baby items, such as clothing, infant car seats, diapers and bottles.
Hutzel Hospital has hosted this annual event for the past 21-years. Hundreds of people attend each year, their donations help employees of Hutzel Hospital to address the needs of thousands of new mothers and their newborns. It is truly a labor of love that brings together a cross section of business, ecumenical, community, political, media and grass roots organizations - all united in their collective community goal to assist mothers and newborns in need. Items provided to these new mothers through community events like this, creates the opportunity for newborns to have a positive start that they need at a very critical time.
At the Baby Shower, guests can expect a toddler fashion show featuring kids who were once in the NIC unit at Hutzel, conversation with friends and neighbors, gifts, light refreshments and the opportunity to help those less fortunate.
