The Yale School of Nursing Alumni Association’s mission of supporting the school’s mission of “Better health for all people” inspires this event of providing basic baby care items to new mothers at St. Raphael’s Hospital in New Haven. Partnering with the Yale Department of Pediatrics, Yale Child Study Group, and Working Women at Yale; the Newborns In Need event is a successful event that brings together alumni, students, family members, faculty, and other Yale departments to fill bags of goods for newborns of mothers who deliver at the Hospital of St. Raphael’s with Yale’s nurse-midwives. 
Over the coming months we will work together to collect items essential to mothers and their newborns. Then, as a community, we gather to assemble newborn bags to be presented to new mothers at St. Raphael’s Hospital (SRH). Many of us at YSN worked in maternal-child health while students or on faculty at YSN, so many of us have direct ties to this program. Additionally, Yale Nurse-Midwives deliver babies at SRH.
A collection box for items will be placed at YSN, or donations may be mailed to:

You can also participate by donating items to the project through our online registry: registered.at/YaleNewbornsInNeed
A signed note of congratulations and support to mothers in English, Spanish and Arabic is included with the donation bags. These letters emphasize loving and reading. The bags include baby care items, clothes, and a gender and culturally neutral board book in Spanish or English. All items are donated. 
Join us for YSN’s Day of Service, Newborns in Need, on May 12 2018 from 9:00 - 11:00 am to assemble the bags.  Breakfast will be provided. YSN is located at Yale’s West Campus. Free parking. 
If you come, we appreciate you bringing an item for our clothing/diaper drive. Please contact Brenda Penner for details: brendaspenner@gmail.com
