Dutchess County Healthy Families (DCHF) of the Institute for Family health is a non-profit organization that works with pregnant and parenting families in Poughkeepsie, Hyde Park and Beacon. We provide free support to all our families throughout their journey of becoming a parent. Some of our services include, but are not limited to, techniques for managing labor and delivery, newborn and infant care, child development, activities to encourage learning, and breastfeeding information and support. We also connect our families to community agencies and events.
This year, DCHF is working with the Lower Hudson Valley Perinatal Network to coordinate a Community Baby Shower here in Poughkeepsie. This is a great opportunity to help pregnant women in our community receive baby items and learn about agencies that may help them along in parenthood. The Community Baby Shower will be held at St. Johnâ€™s Evangelical Church located at 31 Willow Street Beacon, NY 12508. The event will take place on June 4, 2013 from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
