I am excited to announce a new event for our area! We already have the annual Conscious Birth Summit and Baby Talk from the Iowa City Mom’s Blog, which offer primarily birth information. But we don’t have an event for the postpartum period and beyond… until now! What started off as day two of the Birth Summit (which mother nature decided to snow out) has now become the Motherhood Matters: Postpartum & Beyond Expo. I am happy to be at the newly remodeled Coralville Holiday Inn on October 3rd, 2015 from 10a- 4pm.
I plan on having necessary educational topics such as breastfeeding, postpartum mood disorders, child safety and a parenting forum to new families. I look forward to offering sessions but also local exhibitors to pamper moms, provide resources like family photographers, postpartum doulas and child care providers. My goal is to facilitate community support for new families by providing a forum where local resources can network and inform. There will be catered snacks and plenty of prizes for fun! It’s a free event so mark it down on your calendar and share with friends!
