Community Baby Showers
Lucinda's House collaborates with local doulas, lactation consultants, and community organizations to host Community Baby Showers throughout Connecticut to celebrate pregnant women of color. We had Community Baby Showers in Waterbury, Bridgeport, New London, New Haven and Hartford. We plan to have several in 2023.

The Kitchen Table
The Kitchen Table is where we meet to have honest conversations about health care issues that are important to us.
Support, Educate, Provide guidance, Talk about challenges Develop solutions
The Kitchen Table is a concept created by Lucinda where women are invited to share their experiences, wisdom and knowledge. We are going to talk unfiltered about the issues. We will educate and support each other in this space. We will discuss issues that we do not often talk about in our community. Not only are we going to expose structures that cause us harm, but we will show our strength and resilience. Then we are going to identify solutions based on what we feel we need.
If there is a topic you want discussed on the Kitchen Table, please let us know.
If you would like to host a Kitchen Table in your community, please let us know.
