Mommy & Baby Fair
The annual Mommy & Baby Fair was created to support new mothers and answer any questions regarding pregnancy or the development of their newborn baby. The Mommy & Baby Fair 2013 was not only a first for our hospital, but for Clay County as well.
Mommy & Baby Fair 2017 will be scheduled soon. Health information, free health screenings, Question & Answer sessions, refreshments, photo sessions, free massages, give-aways and shopping are just a few of the attractions for this year's fair!
An Information Area will include several booths from community resources such as Wellcare, WIC, and the HANDS Programs, Helping Hand Adoption Agency, the Willowbrook Women’s Center and many others.
The Mission in Motion mobile health unit will be on-site conducting free health screenings and answering any questions you may have about health and wellness during your pregnancy or regarding your baby.
Willowbrook Women's Center providers, Dr. James Dawson and Kristina Burchfield, APRN, will provide information about free childbirth classes, Kangaroo Care, newborn gift packages and other programs available at Willowbrook Women’s Center. Manchester Pediatrics staff will be in attendance as well to help with any questions you might have about the development of your newborn.
Question & Answer sessions are to be held periodically during the fair. Randy Craft will provide information regarding the guiding principles of Creation Health. Megan Kunkel, Memorial Hospital Diabetes Educator, will explain gestational diabetes, and Kellie Gray, Dietician, will be leading a discussion concerning diet changes that promote better health in expectant mothers and newborns.
Give-aways include baby gift baskets, car seats, and a travel system graciously donated by
Dobson & Keith, Willowbrook Women’s Center, and Walmart. Memorial Hospital Gift Gallery will also have a booth featuring baby accessories, stuffed toys, and Mud Pie brand clothing.
