A Mother’s Day Celebration for mothers-to-be AND current mommas!

In Association with Urban Babywearing, I’m doing a FREE Goody Bag giveaway on Sunday morning, May 12th, Mother’s Day, 10-12:30, at the new Dichter’s Pharmacy & Soda Fountain!
Located near the corner of 207 & Broadway (past the plywood scaffolding).

This is not just to spread babywearing love & info, and not just for the coupon for a free scoop of ice cream Manny is letting us make & pass out exclusively for caregivers with kiddos in tow. … But while I’m there …

So bring in your belly, your baby, your carriers and strollers! Check out Manny’s new place, while feeling free to ask me questions about anything: babywearing, Breastfeeding, doulas, etc. Or simply grab & go. Either way, its FREE!

– BirthFocus postcard, to help find a doula
Milkin’ Mamas Breast Milk Donation brochure & convenient refrigerator magnet outlining breast milk storage guidelines
