Inaugural Kentucky Moms Day helps recent moms find resources in the community
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Soon-to-be moms and recent moms gathered at Chaney’s Dairy Barn for Kentucky Moms Day on Saturday, May 21.
The event is helped put together by LifeSkills Regional Prevention Center.
Soon-to-be moms and recent moms were able to pre-register and win prizes such as toys, diapers and other baby items.
Amber Sikes who helped organize the event was able to host a baby shower for the moms while also helping them understand what happens during pregnancy and guide them to the necessary resources.
“We want to connect all these moms to these resources, make sure they’re signed up for making sure they have everything they possibly could need after the baby is born or while they’re pregnant,” said Sikes. “This part is just kind of educate them on all things pregnancy, also to provide them with some fun stuff and some gifts and let them know as well like Kentucky Moms and LifeSkills is here for them if they need anything.”
She also spoke on the baby formula shortage.
“We do have to come together. I have a huge email thread, if I have a mom that reaches out there that is needing formula I’ll reach out to all of them to see if they have some,” Sikes said. “If they don’t have it and we just try to keep finding it, it’s, it’s a, it’s an ordeal. And that’s for sure but we all try to work together to figure it out for everybody.”
