It’s All About the Babies

The third annual Nurture RVA Birth and Baby Fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 21, at the Science Museum of Virginia. This event brings together prospective, expecting and new parents with more than 50 exhibitors representing local hospital systems, midwifery and pediatric practices, doulas, childbirth educators, perinatal mental health providers, childcare facilities, photographers, retail businesses, nonprofits and government agencies.

       The fair provides an opportunity to interact with multiple providers under one roof. Participants receive a swag bag full of information and goodies, as well as opportunities to win raffle prizes and participate in informative demonstrations.

       Leslie Lytle, executive director of Nurture, a nonprofit focused on improving the health and well-being of childbearing families, states, “The fair is an opportunity to speed date local providers and learn about birth and early parenting options available in the Richmond metro area. We especially recommend the fair for people who are contemplating a pregnancy. The festival-like atmosphere encourages communication that is more relaxed than in clinical settings.”

Admission and parking is free. Location: 2500 W. Broad St. For more information, visit
