Healthy Start’s mission is to ensure that healthy babies are born to healthy mothers. Our hope is that no baby is born too small or too early and we are consistently working to reduce the rate of infant mortality in our community. These issues are important to the long-term wellbeing of our community because the health of our community starts with the health of our babies. Babies born premature or with a low birth weight are at risk of having lasting developmental issues that can have major effects on their life as an adult. Our goal with the World’s Greatest Baby Shower is to bring resources to new parents that will help them and their new child succeed, as well as shower them with love and congratulations.
