Your Birth Team attends OC Pregnancy & Beyond 2016

OC Pregnancy & Beyond 2016

On May 15th, 2016, pregnant families & birth professionals from Orange County & surrounding areas gathered at the SOCO shopping center in Costa Mesa, CA for the 6th Annual OC Pregnancy & Beyond. Hundreds of expecting mothers, fathers, grandparents, & siblings enjoyed dozens of vendor booths, giveaways, raffles, & demonstrations of products and services available to local families.

Pregnancy can be a time of joy, excitement, fear, concern, overwhelm, & utter confusion depending on who you talk to, what point in pregnancy they're at, & what resources they have found to help guide them through the transition into parenthood. One amazing resource Orange County families planning a baby's arrival have is Giselle Baturay & her boutique in Costa Mesa, Granola Babies. Not only are parents presented with a multitude of shopping options for their growing bellies and babies, they also have access to classes like Mom & Baby Yoga, workshops such as Breastfeeding 101, & fun baby/toddler art playdates! Because the owner of Granola Babies is a doula, childbirth educator, & lactation educator herself, she recognizes that a lot of parents don't necessarily know the options out there for education, resources, & support. Which brings us to the creation of an event dedicated solely to the expecting parents of Orange County!

Hundreds of Orange County families attended

Your Birth Team's members have attended Expos related to parenting and birthing before, and even wrote a blog about our experience at MommyCon last year. For this particular event, though, we decided to partake as vendors! Some of our members had experience sitting behind a booth at an event and handing out info, but this was a whole new ballgame! There really was no sitting to be had by us. A constant stream of pregnant and parenting moms and dads came to see what our business is all about and how we can offer support to their families. We had an absolute blast. We were exhausted and dry-mouthed by the end of the three hours but had educated hundreds of families on placenta encapsulation, belly binding, doula support, & more! So worth the time, energy, and effort.

Here are some images that capture the magic of the day!
