Local Sponsors Present Eighth Annual Mid-South Baby Expo

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The eighth annual Mid-South Baby Expo will be held on Saturday, April 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bellevue Baptist Church, 2000 Appling Road in Cordova, in the Fellowship Hall.

This is the first year the event is being held at Bellevue.

The event will feature pregnancy, childbirth and baby experts; products; services; and community resources. Mini-presentations on a variety of pregnancy, childbirth and infant care topics will be offered throughout the day. In addition, car seat and home safety demonstrations will be provided in the Infant Safety Corner.

Babytime, a Baby Expo sponsor, donated a nursery makeover to a deserving couple, identified by the staff at Christ Community Clinic. The couple received nursery furniture, equipment and all needed accessories. A video of the nursery before and after the makeover will be shown at the event.

The Mid-South Baby Expo also will offer fun activities for the family, including Pickles & Ice Cream for Mom, a daddy diaper derby, a grandparents stroller relay and maternity and childrens fashion shows. Plus, local food vendors will be on hand with refreshments available for purchase and a grand prize--a $500 gift certificate to decorate a nursery--will be given away at the event.
