The 18th Annual Solano County African American Community Baby Shower

A More Excellent Way Health Organization and community partners are inviting African-American pregnant and breastfeeding women and expectant fathers to the Virtual and Drive-Thru “More Excellent Way Community Baby Shower” on February  25, 2023.

The Zoom celebration is from 10:00 AM to 12 PM, followed by the Drive-Thru Health Fair at location to be announced.

This event has received funding from Solano First Five Children’s and Families Commission. It is free of charge and will include Zoom health and education workshops and a drive-thru health and resource fair that will include incentives and free food. The baby shower will assist the couples in accessing prenatal, safety, and other health care services and essential supplies.

Black babies die twice the rate of other babies before they reach their first birthday. African-American women die three times the rate of any other race from preventable labor and delivery complications.

Improving the pregnancy and birth outcomes of African–American women continues to be a goal of A More Excellent Way Health and several collaborating agencies. We provide assistance to Solano County families by promoting the importance of early and culturally humble prenatal care, safety, and community support to improve their pregnancy outcomes.

The event will be socially distanced and in compliance with all the CDC Covid-19 guidelines.

A More Excellent Way Health Community Baby Shower will be held free of charge on Saturday, February 25th, 2023. Zoom celebration from 10:00 AM to 12 PM and Shower Drive-thru Health Fair from 12 until 2 PM at a location to be announced.
