There is a special event coming up this weekend in Fresno, aimed at providing information to parents about keeping their kids healthy from birth through the teen years. This event,entitled "Healthy Kids...Happy Moms," is being offered by Wellness Connections, and will be held at The Center: Bridging Mind, Body, and Spirit, which is located at 1233 W. Shaw Avenue. Participation is free, and there will be many valuable door prizes being given away to those who attend. The seminar will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 22, 2010.
In addition to several educational talks ranging from nutrition in childhood to the developing immune system of the child, there will also be several tables set up featuring local services that focus on the well-being of children and their mothers. One of these tables will include information about lactation consulting and what role breastfeeding plays in the development of the child's immune system. Another table will focus on what type of nurturing a mother needs after giving birth, and how a Postpartum Doula can assist a mom in the transition to confident motherhood.
With this event being free of charge to the public, and filled with beneficial information as well as valuable prizes, it is sure to be appreciated by those who attend. The organizers also note that although the title indicates that the information is geared to mothers, fathers are welcome at the event also.
