The education event, had so much for families to do, games, a scavenger hunt, prizes, exhibitors and give aways. The education that a new, or even not so new parent can get from this event is priceless. Not only can the things you learn make you and your babies life easier but it can actually save lives too. Fathers were also encouraged to attend this fun and interactive baby shower, and the Dads were there enjoying their families and showing off their beautiful bundles.
