What better way to celebrate our moms and dads than to play silly games with them?

Our History

 At the Bakersfield Pregnancy Center our hope from the moment a mom and dad step into our office is that they would feel that they are in a safe space. We want them to feel at ease when the female volunteer or male coach calls them back. Whether coming for a pregnancy test or parenting classes, every client is invited to attend a baby shower when she is in her final months of pregnancy. In October 2018 we started the baby showers with little more than some baby and mommy gifts, a lunch and Costco cake. What started with a sign up list of 5 women ended up being 8 clients and adding! The first baby shower was such a hit that we continued throwing baby showers and donors caught wind of it. We began receiving phone calls from churches and ministry leaders, donors and volunteers, asking how they could help, and what to donate.

What We Do

In 2020 we have celebrated 78 clients, that includes mostly mothers but some fathers! At every baby shower our moms and dads get a gift, and we load them up with diapers and baby items they can begin using immediately. We know babies grow fast so we also give them gifts that their baby will fit into at 6 months, 9 months, and sometimes even 12 months. We want to make sure they have a little bit of everything! Since the Covid-19 pandemic, we have changed our baby showers up a little bit. We are still celebrating moms and dads, but doing so at a distance, with masks, and allowing moms and dads to stay in their cars. Yet even with the changes, our message and mission remains the same: to empower individuals to make life-affirming choices regarding their pregnancy and sexual health. Often we add small invitation cards from a local church, a devotional, or Christian book that the moms and dads can read to themselves or with their children. Newborn gift bags many times come with a small children’s book containing a Bible story. While we might not see these couples, single moms, and newborns ever again, we know that they experienced through our gifts, smiles, applause and attention the love of Jesus.

How You Can Help

If you want to join us at our baby showers (currently drive-thru), you can do so in two different ways. You can volunteer to hand out gift bags and treats to our clients that drive by, or you can become a sponsor. Typically groups of 5-8 people have sponsored our baby showers, being women’s ministry groups, a congregation, or businesses. Friends are also welcome to be the sponsors. In addition, we gladly accept donations of gently used or new items during our office hours. To sponsor a baby shower you can contact Julie Sepulveda at (661) 326-1915 or email her at outreach@wehelpyou.org .

Your sponsorship will include providing the decorations for the baby shower as well as the gifts for the moms and dads. We have a list of items that we recommend our sponsors look at to see what they would like to gift our clients with, but if you have specific gift you’d like to provide we can accomdate for that as well.
