Richmond County residents can attend the upcoming FirstHealth Richmond Memorial Hospital Pregnancy Fair and get their questions answered.
“It’s important for mothers and the entire family to get a head start when planning for a new baby,” says Jacqueline McKinney, R.N., the hospital’s director of Women and Children’s Services. “The Pregnancy Fair is a great way for people to learn the basics about childbirth and parenting. They will also have a chance to ask experts about more detailed questions or concerns that they may have.”
The July 28, program will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Richmond Memorial Hospital Auditorium. Experts on breastfeeding, car seat safety, pain management and childbirth, and when to call a pediatrician will be on hand to answer questions. Vendors from throughout the Sandhills will also be present with a variety of giveaways to share.
New and expectant parents are invited to participate, and there is no cost to attend. Registration is not necessary.
