GOL Educates Community at Babypalooza

Mona Davis - Monday, April 03, 2017

 

OH BABY! Gift of Life was excited to participate in Babypalooza, a premiere baby and maternity expo where expectant moms and families came to connect to community maternity resources on April 1 from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. at the Cramton Bowl Multiplex. We had the opportunity to connect with more than 75 women and educate them to safe sleep infant practices. These expectant moms watched a one-minute  education video, answered the quiz and took turns placing Gift of Life's Baby Marcus to sleep properly in his pack-n-play. Big thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth to learn more about safe sleep and how practicing it with your baby or a baby you know could save their life.  Participants received a free sleep sack while supplies lasted and five lucky families won a brand new Graco Pack-N-Play!
