Brooklyn Based Non-profit, Don't 4 Get Me Presents Their First Community Baby Shower For Teen Moms
became a resource for homeless, pregnant teen mothers - to provide them with essential items such as bottles, pampers, wipes etc. In addition, there were workshops about labor, delivery, breastfeeding and postpartum. The event was filled with a lot of information from a local OBGYN, Dr. Wade. The two guest speakers, Debre Blakley and Prophetess Nabiha Kelly, shared their experiences and inspiring stories about how they went from a statistic to success.
The donation sponsors included Medela, The Salty Heifer Co., Bella Canvas Beauty and HM Catering BK. The event was also made possible due to the support and partnerships of DJ Mr.Biggs, We Say What They Can't Radio and Tad Aeriel.
Simone Goss, Founder of Don't 4 Get Me, said "I am extremely happy about the turnout of the
Community Baby Shower! Not only did this event allow local teenage mothers to see how compassionate their communal support system is, but they were provided with the important tools to grow from a statistic to success." Plenty of mothers were in attendance to be educated about the complete experience of entering
motherhood. Some of the attendees went on to say how thankful they were for the donated items and the testimonies from the featured guest speakers.
