We partnered with KMOV to co-host A Mom Is Born: The Virtual Baby Shower Celebrating a Woman’s Journey into Motherhood to benefit theMarch of Dimes and to show how women can transition into motherhood with the support of friends and family.
Our 2010 celebrant is expecting mom Virginia Kerr, the anchor on Channel 4’s early news show, Awake.
We hosted a Holding Hands Ceremony (featured in the video above) in which we personalized a Holding Hands bracelet for Virginia. Villa Design created a signature bead and bracelet for us as a symbol of the connectedness between all mothers and the strength moms can source from each other. The bracelet is an especially touching gift for an expecting mom to wear during her labor and delivery, as a reminder of the support she has from her closest women friends — who were invited to add their own Pandora-style bead and an accompanying wish.
A limited number of Holding Hands bracelets with one-of-a-kind glass beads were handmade by artist, Melissa Villadiego for this event for guests to buy for a special mom or mom-to-be. Through August 31, a portion of the proceeds will go to the March of Dimes.
Top tips for new moms were shared, which are being collected in exchange for an entry in the Mom is Born giveaway raffle. Raffle prizes have been generously donated by the shower sponsors.
