This year’s World’s Greatest Baby Shower was held in Central Brevard at the Viera Regional Community Center located at 2300 Judge Fran Jamieson Way in Viera, FL. We invited all Brevard County pregnant women and new parents who have had a baby in the last two years to join us for the Worlds Greatest Baby Shower! The event was a great success and we were able to reach out to many women and families in Brevard County. Many thanks to Rockledge Regional Medical Center for being the Title Sponsor of this event and helping make this event happen. A special thank you to all of our medical professionals and Doctors that attended to provide these valuable classes to our attendees. The knowledge passed on was very appreciated to all those that attended.
