Expectant parents and their families are invited to a fun and informative night out by attending the Prenatal Health Fair hosted by the Peterborough County-City Health Unit at the Holiday Inn on Monday, February 23, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to everyone with an interest in learning how best to prepare for having a baby, and about the supports available in the Peterborough area.  The Prenatal Health Fair features interactive displays and demonstrations on a wide variety of topics such as nutrition for baby and Mom, becoming a parent, baby’s development, and much more.

Car seat experts from the newly-formed Peterborough and Area Car Seat Committee will share tips and answer questions about how to safely buckle up your baby, a massage therapist will demonstrate infant massage techniques, a chiropractor will recommend ways to prevent back pain in pregnancy and hospital staff will share the many ways they provide support to get breastfeeding off to a good start.  Fathers-to-be won’t want to miss trying on the “Empathy Belly” and visiting the fathering display.  You might even win the door prize!

For more details, please call Kris Hazlitt at the Peterborough County-City Health Unit at (705) 743-1000, ext. 254
