DC Birth and Babies Fair

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital

This is a great fair for expectant families to learn about all the resources available to support you. I will be presenting on a panel about recent ACOG guidelines to prevent unnecessary cesarean section. Here is a letter from the organizers about the event:

It’s a pleasure to  announce that registration for the 2014 DC Birth and Babies Fair sponsored by the Midwives of Medstar is now open! You can register with the Early Bird rates here. Remember, the Fair is Saturday May 3rd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital near Eastern Market.
Early Bird admission for one adult is $10 and for two is $15.  Children are free. The goody bag alone is worth way more than the price of admission, not to mention the value of the 23 programs, 40+ exhibitors and the 20+ fantastic raffle prizes. So don’t wait to secure your spot, sign up today.
The Fair is a “must-do” introduction for first-timers and a valuable chance to advance your skills and knowledge as a veteran. There’s no other opportunity to meet and learn from so many birth and baby professionals under one roof. Whether it’s new skills for parenting or looking ahead for your next baby, with so many classes and exhibitors even the most seasoned parent will have something to gain.
There’s also a comfy Children’s Play Area (thanks to Urban Sitter) for you and your little one to take a break. Light snacks will be available and don’t forgot to bring a little cash for your chance to win in the fantastic raffle featuring free photo sessions, baby carriers, massage and more!
What better way to prepare for Mother’s Day the next week than by spending the afternoon at the Birth Fair educating, empowering and connecting yourself to be the happiest, healthiest and most confident parents you can be!
Register for the Fair today by clicking here and make sure your friends know about it too. Meet as a group for brunch in Eastern Market and then you can all come together.  You’ll need to split up and compare notes to take advantage of so many classes and exhibitors in one space.
We owe a great thanks to Midwives of Medstar, Tiny Touch Photography and Advantage Rehabilitation & Wellness Center for helping make this special event possible for the families of DC.
It’s going to be a great time and we can’t wait to see you May 3rd!
