This event is free and open to everyone with an interest in learning how best to prepare for having a Screen Shot 03-02-15 at 09.48 AMbaby, 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 share tips and answer questions about how to safely buckle up baby, a massage therapist demonstrates infant massage techniques, a chiropractor recommends ways to prevent back pain in pregnancy and hospital staff  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 will enjoy a refreshment and might even win the door prize!

The Prenatal Health Fair is hosted by the Peterborough County City Health Unit with partner agencies and local services.
