Blue Cross Complete Healthy Baby Shower
We attended and supported the Blue Cross Complete Healthy Baby Shower on May 5 at the Durfee Innovation Society in Detroit to help support new and soon-to-be moms and their families with health education, baby item giveaways and resource connections.
At these events, Blue Cross provides access to resources to help mothers get the support they need from all angles both during and after their pregnancy. The program provides education and builds the relationships between expectant mothers and their health plan, as well as connects them with available community resources. The showers have the added benefit of bringing communities together to celebrate the addition of new family members.
Dental, lead and developmental screenings were available for children, as well as health and dental screenings for adults. Lunch was provided, along with healthy snacks from Chef Paul Penney, a familiar face at Blue Cross Complete community events.
Pregnant women and young children make up the majority of Blue Cross Complete’s membership. The Community Baby Shower is one part of a comprehensive effort to support healthy pregnancies and infants. Expectant mothers have access to the Bright Start maternity support program, the Keys to Your Care texting program, and more.
