10th Annual Contra Costa African American Community Baby Shower Zoom Celebration and Drive-Thru Health Fair

The 10th Annual Contra Costa African American Community Baby Shower is scheduled annually during Black Breastfeeding week to emphasize the importance of breastfeeding to the health of African American families. The shower is scheduled for Saturday, August 27th from 10 to 2:30 pm (PST). At the shower we not only provide essential baby items to support the families but have a table of IBClCs and doulas to provide breastfeeding education, support and referrals. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers are given breastfeeding supplies, information and resources.  Families also receive a healthy meal and a photograph. The Zoom celebration from 10 to 12 pm (PST) includes presentations from physicians, doulas and lactation educators as well as games and prizes. The drive thru health fair is from 12:30 – 2:30 (PST) and features programming celebrating life and the African American culture at John Buckley Square Park in the amphitheater.
