Expectant parents, new parents and their families can get a good feel for the area’s maternity and child care resources from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 16 at Griffin Hospital’s 2015 annual Baby Fair.
Held at The Childbirth Center at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division St. in Derby, this free event features more than 40 exhibitors, door prizes, tours of the Childbirth Center, and information about the center’s classes and support groups for before and after childbirth.
Griffin Hospital offers family-centered maternity care in an environment to best meet individual and family needs with private, family-friendly rooms, expert staff for maternal and newborn care, and lactation consultants.
The Childbirth Center received the Baby-Friendly designation from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). This international honor is given to hospitals that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and help parents make informed choices about feeding and caring for their babies.
