Pregnant women can have all sorts of cravings, and Clark Memorial Hospital's certified nurse midwife, Beth Bary, has examples on how women can stay healthy during their pregnancy. She has an easy recipe for what she calls a "pregnancy smoothie."
Clark Memorial Hospital is hosting the Baby Fair, Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. - noon in the main lobby of the hospital. The free event is open to women and their families who are expecting a baby, or planning to have a baby.
The Baby Fair features more than 35 information booths and vendors providing expecting families the opportunity to visit with pediatricians, obstetricians and community groups. Information at the booths will include birthing options, postpartum depression, early childhood development, breastfeeding and support for siblings. Tours of the Family Birth Place will be offered, and participants can sign up for doorprizes to be given away throughout the event.
Attendees can also participate in a question and answer session with labor and delivery nurses during the "Clark Delivers" session offered at both 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. These sessions provide an open conversation between expecting moms and the nurses who will provide their care during labor.
A special guest speaker at 10:30 a.m. will focus on the "39 Weeks Quality Initiative" with March of Dimes. This national initiative focuses on the importance of fetal development in the womb and the importance of carrying a baby the full 39 to 40 weeks. The guest speaker will be Kara Dietrich Brown with the March of Dimes, Greater Kentucky Chapter.
