The debate of which is better for expecting mothers, midwives and doulas versus hospitals and doctors, hasn’t lessened. There are arguments for both sides that make sense in order to properly care for mother and child, while also making the birthing process as easy as possible. Now, Village Maternity has sought to combine the best of both worlds. Village Maternity will be at the New York Baby Show on May 14th and 15th, at Pier 92.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
