  • Mission:
  • This Health Collaboration is conducting a community baby shower in aspiration to improve the birth outcomes of African-American women of Contra Costa County by providing critical health and parenting information; also, linking them to prenatal services and other forms of support. In our county, African-American babies die at twice the rate of other babies before they reach their first birthday and are more likely to suffer from asthma and other illnesses. African-American women are three times as likely to die from labor and delivery complications.

  • Overview:
  • We invite all African-American expectant mothers and their partners, who reside in Contra Costa County, to attend the community baby shower on Saturday, August 2, 2014 from 9:00 am to 3 pm at Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch located at 3415 Oakley Road in Antioch. We are hoping to nurture, support and inform these couples in an attempt to improve their pregnancy outcomes.
    Your donation would be useful in helping to accomplish this goal. All donations will be used for the purpose of raffles, prizes, and give-a-ways such as breast pumps, books, safety kits, cloth baby holders, diapers, and other baby items, as well as, food, gift certificates and drinks. Your tax-deductible contributions should be made out to A More Excellent Way Health Improvement Organization (Tax ID# 14-2011697). If you are interested in contributing to this event, please contact Monique Sims.
