A good day to be ‘Born in Brooklyn’: Beep launches free postpartum and baby supply program


Some new parents in Brooklyn will soon be headed home from the hospital with a box full of baby supplies and resources, courtesy of Borough President Antonio Reynoso and the Met Council’s new initiative “Born in Brooklyn.”

Reynoso has pledged to make Brooklyn the safest place in the city to give birth — and, as part of that promise, he wants to make taking the baby home a little easier, too. His office granted $100,000 to the Met Council, who will facilitate the construction and distribution of a number of “Born in Brooklyn” baby boxes this month.
