The USO and What to Expect are partnering for a sixth year to host baby showers for military moms-to-be around the globe. Heidi Murkoff, the best-selling author of the “What to Expect” book series and founder of the What to Expect Foundation, hosts each event in partnership with a local USO center. Combining traditional baby shower games with a Q&A session with Heidi, the showers provide a touch of home for moms-to-be who are often away from their families, friends and support networks during their pregnancies.

Target joined the Special Delivery team in 2017, contributing gift cards to every attendee gift bag, which includes items for parent and baby. Also, each attendee receives a book from the What to Expect series and the opportunity for a book signing and personalized advice from Heidi Murkoff, compliments of What to Expect. Nearly 10,000 military spouses and expectant active-duty mothers have been served through this program since it was launched in 2013. In 2018, the Special Delivery Program hosted 58 events across three continents – 35 showers, 17 reunions and six showers for expecting fathers.
