    Agency: Iowa State University Extension and Outreach

    The Healthy Baby Shower is an interactive, virtual prenatal nutrition lesson, combined with a discussion of community resources of interest to parents-to-be and parents of young children. Participants in the virtual class receive a sturdy “Healthy Baby” backpack filled with gifts, delivered to their doors by volunteers from Nutrition 4 Young Children.  These gifts include a dozen newborn diapers, an electronic infant ear thermometer, a onesie, a baby bath kit, a Haakaa breast milk collector, a handmade cloth doll, a crocheted baby hat, infant nail clippers, hand sanitizer, and a child development guide.

    If it is past the deadline to register for a current shower, parents-to-be may contact Cassie Odland, or 515-414-9865 (call or text option) to be put on a waiting list for the next shower. 

    To register for the Spanish speaking Health Baby Shower, please reach out to: Rosa Gonzalez, 515-490-2298 (call or text option),
