Military families are amazing. They quietly shoulder the burden of separation from loved ones in support/service of our country. Children go months without seeing a loved one/parent. Parents anxiously await the return of their grown children as they proudly serve. Spouses keep the homefires burning and family business in order. But perhaps the truest heroes on the homefront are the new and expecting mommies with their husbands deployed.
Imagine the joy, the excitement, the anxiety and the hormones of pregnancy and add to that the stress related to having a loved one deployed. Our military's warrior mommies-to-be often endure the ups and downs of pregnancy alone, and miles away from family. This is precisely why OHH Baby Showers work to unite new and expecting mommies during deployment. An afternoon of pampering, a catered lunch, fun games, photography opportunities, access to labor/delivery professionals, and unbelievable raffle prizes are just a part of the day planned to celebrate and thank these warrior mommies-to-be. In the end, these mommies will not only walk away with gifts, full bellies, photos for daddy and larger baby items to lighten the financial burden of raising a baby, they will also walk away with a support system.
Our next baby shower: October 21st for 15th MEU and 1/5
