Women’s Health Associates is proud to sponsor the Hello Baby Expo, held in Columbia MO. Designed for new parents, expectant parents and babies, this family event will keep both parents and baby entertained while providing lots of valuable information and resources. If you’re not sure what to expect when you’re expecting, the Hello Baby Expo is a must for everything parenting.
The event started in 2013 as a joint effort between the Columbia Daily Tribune and Boone Hospital Center. Boone Hospital Center Media Relations Specialist Jacob Luecke explained the importance of the event to KOMU saying, “Whenever you are pregnant and having a baby it is one of the most exciting times of life but it is also a time where you have a lot of questions that you need answered.” The event began as a resource for the parents of more than 4,000 babies born in Boone County every year. This will be the fifth year that the expo has been held.
There are numerous activities being held throughout the day that are sure to be fun, exciting, and informational. Some of these activities include a baby fashion show, a “momma lounge” pampering station, play-to-learn stations, a diaper derby crawling race, and selfie contest. Prizes will be available throughout the day including a jogging stroller, a $200 Columbia Mall gift card, and a St. Louis family weekend getaway. Dozens of vendors from the area will be attending to hand out free samples and give information on services available. Women’s Health Associates, in addition to sponsoring the event, will be holding a Q & A booth with Boone Hospital Center, answering any and all questions you may have about pregnancy, delivery, and parenthood.
The event will be held on Saturday June 17th, 2017 at the Holiday Inn Expo Center in Columbia, MO and will go from 8 AM to 1 PM. Tickets are $5 at the door and are free for children under 10 years old. Proceeds go to benefit the Boone Health Foundation and the Neonatal Unit Fund.
