While we are not certain about the baby items and supplies, we do have agencies you can call. You will need to call around and see if they have those baby items, diapers, etc that your daughter needs. Find information on Arrostook assistance programs.
There are also some nation programs that offer free diapers. Once again, not sure if you will qualify or if they serve Maine, but that information is found here. Read about free diapers. Just continue to explore the main site of needhelppayingbills for many other programs, charities, and other programs.

I've never had to search for help before, I've always taking care of my family. I'm a mother of 2 and 4 months pregnant. Been with my husband for 6 years married 5. Guess times getting hard he felt as if he wasn't providing enough I'm not sure but he just up and left, so now behind. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and I'm a high risk pregnancy. Had a great job but because my job requires me being on my feet 10 hours a day I was admitted into the hospital due to contractions. I've been put on bed rest now. And I'm unable to return to work till after delivery due to the risk of my unborn baby and insurance risk of the company. I have a car but I walk my kids to school, me to doctor's appointments, grocery store things are very difficult right now, and now behind on car payments too. I two kids and Christmas is around the corner and they r excellent kids they deserve a Christmas. Also I have my baby coming and nothing for him. And its out of my hands because I can't go back to work till After my baby is born. I'm hoping there is anyone that may be financially able to offer any assistance and help towards bills, Christmas, and baby needs. I'm gracious for anything. God bless. And this is very difficult when I've always been able to take care of my family myself.

If it is more Christmas gifts and baby items and thinks like that, then call your local Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, or churches. Many of them may have these items for you, or advice or tips on where you can go or stop by for baby supplies and programs like Toys for Tots. Angel Trees is another good option/program that is run too. Look into all of those options. Find more information on assistance from charities and find both local and national non-profit charity organizations and details on the services and programs they run.

Indiana. I am pregnant and was currently put on bed rest by my doctor and need baby items. I have 2 weeks until my due date. My bills are already past due.
I have a disconnect on my electric and behind on rent by a month. The income I have for the month of July is only 1400 which I had to pay rent 2 times with because I'm behind. I have no way of paying my other bills or getting baby items. Work is going to pay me 200 a week maternity leave starting a week from now. But it’s not going to make ends meet. I have tried applying for loans, but I have been denied. If there is any way I can get financial assistance for baby items. My garbage bill is also past due and when my propane runs out I will need to come up with 700 and it’s in my contract that I pay the taxes due on the home in renting. Rent is 600 and I am overdrawn 530. I hope I can get a loan threw you guys or some type of assistance. Any bit of help for baby items or bills would be appreciated.
