The USO and What to Expect have partnered for a seventh year to host free baby showers for military parents-to-be around the globe. Heidi Murkoff, the best-selling author of the “What to Expect” book series and founder of What to Expect, hosts each event in conjunction with a local USO center.

Combining traditional baby shower games with a one-of-a-kind 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 continues to support the Special Delivery program, contributing to every attendee gift bag, which includes items for parent and baby. Also, each attendee receives a personally signed book donated by Heidi and the opportunity for hugs and photos together.

Over 12,000 military spouses and expectant active-duty parents have been served through this program since it was launched in 2013. In 2019, Special Delivery hosted 51 events across three continents – 32 showers, 14 reunions and five showers for expecting fathers.
