2017 Salisbury Mom & Baby Expo

One day, I was chatting with Martha Ogburn, the owner of Barefoot Baby Boutique.  We had this great discussion about how wonderful it was that the Eastern Shore was growing and growing in terms of stores, opportunities, and services for expecting and new parents.  There are doula businesses, fantastic handmade health and beauty products, stellar massage therapists and chiropractors, and some really cool baby boutiques and stores.  We just hated that we weren't all connected and most people weren't even aware of their existence!  We said, "Man! I wish there was an expo on Delmarva specifically targeted toward pregnant and new parents and babies."  

The light bulb turned on above both our heads at exactly the same time.  Well, if no one else is doing it, we certainly will!  

And we started planning right away.  FINALLY new moms and families can come once per year to this annual event and meet EVERYONE that can help to make their pregnancies and postpartum experiences as optimal, joyful, and fulfilling as possible!
