Fayette County Mom’s Shower Celebrates Child Birth

05/24/2014

 

Mary Jul Phillips, RN at the Family Beginnings Birthing Center (FBBC) at Uniontown Hospital and community liaison for FBBC, said that the Mom’s Shower was coordinated to celebrate new mothers, whether they had already delivered in 2014 prior to Wednesday’s shower, or are expected to deliver later in the year.

Phillips, who has spearheaded Uniontown Hospital’s efforts to maintain the annual event, said that nearly 30 area programs, organizations and outreaches participated in this year’s shower, with booths set up through the main hospital corridors where representatives were on hand to describe services and help for the county’s new moms. 

“We are very pleased with the turnout and with the cooperation from the community for this important celebration,”

Phillips said.

“This is the 17th year that the Mom’s Shower has been held in Fayette County and our second year as organizers of the event and it really is a tremendous opportunity for new area mothers to find what services are available to them and to simply celebrate the miracle of child birth and that special bond between mother and child.” 

The shower included a luncheon for the women as well as tours of the FBBC, support and information from organizations in attendance and a free dental screening exam for those interested.  

Phillips said that the shower could not have been possible without the efforts of Uniontown Hospital, specifically her team from FBBC, and also from hospital support staff.

“Everyone did so much to help make this event another success,”

Phillips said.

“From the staff that helped by setting up and tearing down tables to the nurses who led tours of the birthing center, it was a true team effort.”
