2019 TVAMC Baby Shower
Wednesday, May 1, 2019To honor and support Veterans welcoming a new addition to their families in 2019, TVAMC is hosting its baby shower on May 14th, from 2-4 P.M. in the Serenity Garden, BLDG 137. VA’s nationwide baby shower event will have all the trappings of a traditional baby shower—from baby-themed games to baby care packages—but behind the celebration is a bigger purpose.
VA’s nationwide baby shower plays a critical role in connecting Veterans with VA benefits, information and resources as they begin their journey into parenthood. This gathering also extends the opportunity for Veterans to make meaningful connections with other new parents in their local community, as well as providing awareness of vital information like sudden infant death syndrome, women, infants and children programs, and postpartum depression signs and symptoms.
Nearly half of all women Veterans receiving health care from VA are of reproductive age. In stepping up to meet the demands of this ever-growing population, VA offers a full range of gynecological, reproductive and maternity benefits including prenatal and preconception care, maternity care services and the first seven days of newborn care.
