“We want new and expecting parents to be empowered with knowledge and resources to help their babies thrive through their first birthday, setting them up for a lifetime of health and happiness,” said David Covell, RS, MPH, health commissioner at Lorain County Public Health.

Baby shower attendees can expect to learn from baby safety experts about breastfeeding, car seat safety, safe sleep practices, vaccines, lead poisoning, and more. Local organizations and businesses will be at the event to answer questions and to provide chances to win baby supplies and safety gear.
