GREENVILLE, S.C. (February 6, 2017)—Baby showers provide exciting moments for families and the Greenville Health System Nurse-Family Partnership is planning one that will bring expectant moms across the Upstate together for games, prizes and a concert with a Grammy-nominated singer.
The Community Baby Shower will be held Saturday, Feb. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the TD Convention Center in Greenville. Ruben Studdard, winner of the second season of “American Idol” will perform, as well as artists Nick Gaggero and Tp9.
“Nurse-Family Partnership empowers women during their first pregnancies and we are looking forward to doing that through our Community Baby Shower,” said Elena Huston, nurse manager of GHS Nurse-Family Partnership. “Our community partners will share great information that will benefit new moms and it’s going to be special for women to meet others who are currently sharing many of the experiences that they are having.”
The event is free, but registration is required and seating will be limited. First-time moms and a guest will receive priority seating. Tickets are required to enter. Ticket locations are provided when registered at ghs.org/healthevents or calling 1-877-GHS-INFO (447-4636).
Various community agencies will be on-site to provide helpful information to assist expectant moms while sharing tips to better understand appropriate child development. The BlueChoice HealthPlan is a sponsor for the baby shower.
Studdard, who is known as “The Velvet Teddy Bear,” has recorded five albums since winning “American Idol.” Nick Gaggero, an up and coming Latin performer, just released his first single “Libertad.” Tp9 is a high-energy performer who appeared on “America’s Got Talent.” She will perform her debut single, “I Be Like,” which is available on ITunes.
Nurse-Family Partnership pairs first-time moms with specially-trained nurses who make prenatal visits while continuing to check-in on women until their baby is 2 years old. The services are free and intended to help women have healthy pregnancies. The nurses provide expert advice and coaching on child development that often empowers new mothers.
