Best Baby Shower and Breastfeeding Presentation

Saturday September 29th

9:00am-1:30pm

Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena

Event is Free but registration is required at www.juliesvillage.org

Gaia Birth & Bodywork will be offering FREE massages to pregnant and postpartum women this Saturday, Sept 29th at the Best Baby Shower. This Free public event is hosted by Julie’s Village which is a new local Nashville Non-profit that educates pregnant moms on breastfeeding preparedness and helps women reach their breastfeeding goals. They are unique in that they are passionate about reaching out to pregnant women. Learning about breastfeeding prenatally enables women to ask questions, gather information about the health benefits for both mother and baby, and helps women feel more prepared before they begin their journey of breastfeeding. Julie’s Village not only offers educational presentations they also advocate for better breastfeeding policy in the public, hospital, and in the work environment. They offer direction to local resources, phone support for breastfeeding preparedness, legal consultations, and are working on a variety of programs such as a radio-show and a hospital data base to rank breastfeeding friendliness. For more information visit their website at www.juliesvillage.org.

This event is open to both pregnant and postpartum women, family, and friends.  There will be goodie bags, great big giveaways, breastfeeding information, and a variety of local vendors who cater to women of childbearing years. Registration is required and there is an optional $30 lunch and breastfeeding class that will be well worth it! We will be raffling off a massage gift certificate as well as offering table massage to pregnant and postpartum women. Come out, bring a friend and stop by our booth, we would love to see you!
