Reynoso seeks to ‘close the gaps in maternal healthcare’ with Brownsville community baby shower

More than 100 new and expectant parents were “showered” with gifts, resources, and good tidings at a community baby shower hosted by Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso on Saturday. 

The shower, hosted in the Van Dyke Community Center in Brownsville, featured all the usual conventions of a baby shower — games, gifts, arts and crafts — as well as educational workshops and the opportunity to talk with experts from across the fields maternal healthcare and baby care.
