Baby Showers: USO And What To Expect Present Special Delivery
Expecting a child, whether the first or the fourth, is a special time to be shared with family and friends. In the military community, however, it’s not uncommon for expectant moms to live far away from these special people who form a support network, offer their love and host baby showers.
Still, these things are important to moms-to-be, which is why the USO and the What to Expect Foundation teamed up in 2013 to host baby showers for military moms. Heidi Murkoff, who established the What to Expect Foundation in 1997, serves as the host for each shower, answering questions, signing copies of her best-selling book, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” and posing for photos with expectant mothers. But it is a baby shower and it wouldn’t be complete without games, food and gifts. Each shower offers guests a chance to get to know each other through tried-and-true baby shower games and lunch. For the USO and the What to Expect Foundation, the goal of each Special Delivery shower is the same: Educate and empower military moms and foster a sense of community where it might be needed most – far from home and family.
