Our seminars are led by local experts and focus on topics related to pregnancy, labor & delivery, newborns & infants, and the transition to parenthood.
Seminars are typically 30-45 minutes long with time for questions at the end. There are three seminars per time slot, and they begin at 10:15AM, 11:15AM, 12:15PM, and 1:15PM. Seating is ample, but available on a first-come, first-served basis. So, if there’s anything that you are committed to seeing, we recommend arriving a few minutes early to get a seat.
We also have 15-minute demonstrations at the top and bottom of the hour throughout the day.
