ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Having your first child can be exciting and overwhelming, and a lot of new and expecting moms might not even know where to start. That’s why the Children, Youth and Families Department is hosting a “PullTogether Baby Shower.”

The event takes place Saturday, April 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn at 1771 Rio Rancho Blvd SE in Rio Rancho. Moms can RSVP by emailing may.jaramilla@state.nm.us or texting 5054123823. RSVPs are appreciated but not required.

The event is for expecting families and caregivers with infants up to the age of one and will include information on low-cost resources for parents across the state, a free diaper bag starter kit for every family and caregiver, and baby shower games. It’s also a chance for new parents to meet other “parent friends.”

“I think first of all just knowing that it's ok that it's hard,” said CYFD Secretary Monique Jacobson. “And having people to talk [to], whether it’s to text in the middle of the night when you're both up or to call the next day or when your baby won't stop crying, to tell you, it’s okay, put the baby down and walk around in another room and call me if you need to talk.”

CYFD hopes helping families create that support system and build relationships with other loving parents will help them be the moms, dads and caregivers they want to be.
