Planning a pregnancy, currently pregnant or in the early stages of parenting?
The Nurture RVA Birth and Baby Fair brings together expecting and new families with the care providers, businesses, and organizations that serve families during this exciting and challenging life transition.
This year’s Nurture Birth & Baby Fair promised an amazing mix of passionate speakers, fun and informational demonstrations and a wide array of resources and vendors to support pregnancy and parenting! They definitely delivered . . . !
If you were not able to attend this year’s event, here is a little recap for you:
The Science Museum of Virginia partnered with Nurture this year and provided an incredible venue for everyone attending! The setup started around 8AM and by 10AM, people started trickling in with curious and excited faces.
Along with local pregnancy, birth and postpartum resources, there were fabulous raffle prizes, massages, and awesome demonstrators, such as Nurture, CORE Kids Academy, Women’s Health Physical Therapy, CarryBean
Along with being one of the vendors at this year’s Nurture fair, we had the wonderful opportunity to be one of the demonstrators! Our focus was as follows:
U.S. women who have babies deserve musculoskeletal screening like women in Canada, Australia, and France! Come learn to be POSTPARTUM STRONG® by practicing exercises to prevent a “mummy tummy”, leaking, prolapse, and…sexual dysfunction.
Here are Women’s Health Physical Therapy, we love educating our community on the importance of supporting your pelvic floor function, postural alignment, abdominal and deep trunk muscles, coupled with proper breathing. Focusing on the “core 4” helps to prevent incontinence, prolapse, back pain and sexual dysfunction.
