The Baby Oasis

Each year in Brattleboro, the first weekend in June is full of festivity, with the Strolling of the Heifers parade and the Slow Living Expo Fair.

Starting in 2015, It Takes a Village has hosted a “Baby Oasis” tent during the fair– a haven for families with babies and small children.  The Baby Oasis is a space for families to take a break from the sun and crowds, to feed their babies, change diapers, relax, and connect with other families.  The service has been gratefully utilized!

Baby Oasis has been generously funded and supported each year by Brattleboro Savings & Loan– thanks BSL!!

Many others have joined the collaboration to make Baby Oasis Possible, including:

Health Care & Rehabilitation Services

The Winston Prouty Center

Vermont Department of Health

Rivertown Church

Visiting Nurse and Hospice of VT & NH

and countless community volunteers!!!

If you’d like to help decorate, staff, or fund Baby Oasis in June 2018, please contact

Thanks a million, Brattleboro, for making the Baby Oasis possible!!!
