The layette program for Norwalk Hospital by the Woman’s Board has been in operation for over forty years. It assists new moms in need with a colorful bag filled with new baby clothing for the baby’s first few days at home.
It consists of:
- two sleeper outfits
- a bib
- five undershirts
- a terry cloth towel
- homemade, knitted blanket and hat
The Woman’s Board layette program also assists new moms to be at the Norwalk Community Health Center on Water Street in South Norwalk. Following a six week baby and mom wellness program, the families gather for a celebration, are awarded a certificate of completion for their efforts, and are treated to a layette, compliments of the Woman’s Board.
It is a wonderful pleasure for us to provide this service for our hospital.
