Frayser community hosts baby shower for new and expectant moms

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - The Frayser community hosted a baby shower Saturday for mothers and babies in North Memphis.

The Fresh Starts Community Baby Shower educated new and expectant mothers about maintaining a healthy pregnancy and raising children while living a healthy lifestyle.

The event was hosted by A Better Memphis and the Voice of Raleigh and Frayser Community Action Network.

Inside the Breath of Life Christian Center, organizer Antonio Parkinson said education is the key to lowering the region's high infant mortality rate.

"We've almost had to turn people away," he said. "We've had double the amount of people who reserved space. That tells you what we're doing is relevant and needed for the community."
