When I was pregnant with each of the kids I soaked up as much information as I could, especially with my first pregnancy. I read books, watched videos, read blogs and attended workshops and events all in an attempt to learn as much as I could.
Of course, knowing what I know now, there are just some things that no amount of education could prepare me for but I was happy to have armed myself with some helpful tips and ideas. Along the way, I also discovered community groups, events and businesses that I would patron and become involved in.
That’s one reason I am especially happy to chat about the return of the Baby Show to Ottawa and Toronto. I know first hand how events like this can be so beneficial to expecting and new parents.
Mark your calendars! The Baby Show in Ottawa will take place March 21 and 22, and The Baby Show Toronto will take place March 28 and 29.
There are plenty of reasons to attend The Baby Show.
The Baby Show carefully creates an experience for new and expecting parents to learn from experts, interact with organizations and businesses and to meet fellow parents.
About The Baby Show Ottawa
Plan to be pampered at the VIP lounge or by signing up at the Anna Belanger & Associates booth for a complimentary massage. Take part in yoga sessions or First Aid lessons on the Health and Wellness Mat, or let the toddlers play in the Tiny Hoppers Fun Zone.
Meanwhile, the entire day is packed with professionals and experts that will help make your parenting journey just a little bit easier. Ann Douglas, renowned parenting author, takes the stage at 11:30 each day to talk about Big Picture Parenting.
In addition, you’ll be able to browse booths and chat with exhibitors over the course of the weekend, many of which are locally owned businesses!
