Date: August 12, 2017

Time: 09:30 AM-02:00 PM
Babies & Bumps, a premier convention designed to prepare new and soon-to-be parents for all aspects of having a baby, will return to Pittsburgh to host its second annual events. The 2016 event debuted in South Hills, and to make Babies & Bumps even more accessible to area residents, this year’s events will take place in both South Hills and Cranberry. The fun and educational experiences will bring together local organizations that cater to pregnant women, new parents and their babies.
Attendees can expect expert-led seminars that focus on topics related to pregnancy, labor & delivery, newborns & infants, and the transition to motherhood, plus demonstrations that will teach a variety of skills such as cloth diapering or comforting labor positions that can easily be put into practice in the home. Typical complimentary activities include a Babywearing Test Drive Area, shopping for handmade products in a Mom & Baby Market, Baby & Bump Photos and more. To further support area parents and babies, 100% of raffle ticket sales will once again benefit Three Rivers Mothers’ Milk Bank, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing safe breast milk to babies in need.
Participants will be able to download an event app through babies-and-bumps.com to plan a schedule in advance based on seminars, demonstrations and activities of most interest. A complete listing will be available one week prior to the event date. Tickets range from $10 to $25 for individuals, and guests can attend for $10.
