Mommy and Me Shared Medical Appointment Baby Shower
Each year, the Women's Health Program hosts 'Mommy and Me' shared medical appointment baby showers for maternity Veterans who are pregnant or recently delivered.
Maternity Veterans are provided with a variety of baby gifts and educational information from healthcare professionals regarding breastfeeding, safe sleeping, nutrition, medications and recognition of the warning signs of pregnancy and postpartum complications. This event takes place at the Birmingham VA Clinic and the Huntsville VA Clinic each year for VA enrolled women Veterans.

Veteran Cherise Carlisle said, “The Mommy and me drive through shower the Birmingham VA Women’s Clinic put on today was fantastic! The information was helpful and relevant, and I hope this continues. I cannot believe they handed out pack n’ plays, diapers and wipes. All those who participated did an awesome job and I just want to say THANK YOU!”
Veteran Dawn White said, "Thank you to the BVAHCS for the Mommy and Me baby shower! In addition to all the thoughtful goodies for my newest bundle of love, they sent me home with packets of information and resources... The Birmingham VA has supported me in so many ways through both of my pregnancies! They've sent me breast pumps, maternity support band, lanolin, nursing bras, and more. If you are a pregnant Veteran, reach out to your local VA women's health group."
