By Lynn Turpin – The Magnolia Project “Community Baby Shower,” hosted by Florida House of Representative District 13 Rep. Tracie Davis was held last weekend at the Magnolia East Clinic on Merrill Rd. The annual baby shower aids parents of babies under two months old living in zip codes 32208, 32209, 32211 and 32277.
Now in its 10th year, the day begins with yoga, baby shower activities, breastfeeding do’s and don’ts, safe sleeping habits and nutritional information for mothers and babies. Duval County has the highest rate of infant mortality in the State of Florida. Shown is Rep Traci Davis (l), Vera Floyd (r) assisting baby shower recipient Denise Long with donated items she received.
