Be a Part of Mom is Born!

You're invited to participate in the biggest virtual baby shower of the year! The moms at are throwing a baby shower on Wednesday for expectant mom Virginia Kerr of KMOV-TV, and you can watch and participate in the event as it's broadcast live online. The shower benefits the March of Dimes and celebrates the journey into motherhood for Kerr, the anchor of KMOV's early news show Awake.

The two-hour broadcast will focus on every women's transition into motherhood, and we all know that's one of, if not the biggest, milestone in our lives. You'll also hear great parenting tips from experienced moms and learn about new products that make the journey into motherhood easier and more fun. On top of all that, prizes have been donated by the shower sponsors for giveaway that you can win online. Prizes include

a Girl's Weekend Getaway for four to Overlook Farm, bedding from Goodnite Rooms, a Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller from Kolcraft, bears from Build-A-Bear Workshop and a photo session for a family of four by Pixie Posie Photography.

In the spirit of sharing, a special bracelet has been commissioned for the event too. A limited number of Holding Hands bracelets with one-of-a-kind glass beads have been handmade by St. Louis artist Melissa Villadiego of Villa Design. Virtual guests can purchase the bracelets for themselves or for gifts for the special moms in their lives. It's an especially touching gift for an expecting mom to wear during her labor and delivery as a reminder of the support she has from her closest women friends.

You'll also have the opportunity to support a charity very near and dear to so many moms' hearts, the March of Dimes. A portion of the proceeds from each Holding Hands bracelet goes to the March of Dimes, and you can make an online donation directly to the charity during the shower. The shower takes place Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To participate in this very special event, just go to on the day of the shower. Visit the site anytime before the shower to share your mothering tips for Virginia and learn how to win the raffle prizes. See you there!
