A Mom Is Born-Virtual Baby Shower

You are cordially invited to attend a Virtual Baby Shower!

This year’s shower, scheduled for Wednesday, August 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. CST, will benefit the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter and the celebrant is expecting mom Virginia Kerr, the anchor on Channel 4’s early news show, Awake.

Anyone with internet access can attend virtually, interacting in real time with Virginia and hosts via a live chat room during the online broadcast. The shower will be aired live through A Mom is Born.

The focus of the shower is celebrating and honoring the transition of a woman to motherhood and how her friends and loved ones can support her during this exciting time. However, any mom will enjoy the event because the two-hour broadcast will feature great parenting tips and products.

Guests will also learn how to personalize a Holding Hands bracelet. The bracelet is a symbol of the connectedness between all mothers and the strength moms can source from each other. It is an especially touching gift for an expecting mom to wear during her labor and delivery, as a reminder of the support she has from her closest women friends.

A limited number of Holding Hands bracelets will be sold during the event for guests to buy for a special mom or mom-to-be. A portion of the proceeds will go to the March of Dimes.

Top tips for new moms will also be shared, which are being collected in the week prior to the broadcast in exchange for an entry in the Mom is Born giveaway raffle. Raffle prizes have been generously donated by the shower sponsors.

How can you support March of Dimes through this event?

• Make a donation via the ChipIn widget.
• Buy a Holding Hands bracelet for yourself or a loved one.

I love that they're doing this. I so wanted to join in, but I am so overbooked right now and just too stressed to do it and remember. It rocks! Go you and thanks for supporting them :)
