Nationwide Baby Shower

To honor and support Veterans welcoming new babies into their families in 2018, VA is hosting the very first Nationwide Baby Shower for Veterans in May 2018!  This event will take place at 60 VA Medical across the country from May 5-16, 2018, the weeks surrounding Mother’s Day (May 13).  Over 2,400 new Veteran parents and new Veteran parents-to-be will participate.

We are proud to partner with the following national organizations, each provided a valuable and generous contribution to the success of the baby showers:

We’d also like to thank the dozens of community partners who joined their local VAMC baby shower teams (Maternity Care Coordinators, Women Veteran Program Managers, Voluntary Services chiefs, and Public Affairs staff) in ensuring every shower is well-resourced – thank you for serving those who served!
