Expecting Parents and Baby Expo:
Expecting Parents and Baby Expos are unique, exciting and educational events designed to enable expectant and new parents to make informed choices for their newborn. Presenting workshops and seminars by industry experts, Expecting Parents and Baby Expos provide knowledge-hungry new parents the opportunity to engage with professionals one-on-one for indispensable advice. Workshops range from delivery methods, feeding methods and choosing a pediatrician to sleep training, infant CPR and more.
