The Babies & Bumps event for new and expectant parents and their families will be held April 14 at the Pittsburgh Marriott North. Shown is an earlier event, where numerous organizations offer families information and education as they prepare and care for their newborns.

New and expectant parents may want to check out the Babies & Bumps event, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 14, at the Pittsburgh Marriott North, Cranberry.

Experts will lead seminars on subjects related to pregnancy, childbirth and the transition to parenthood. How-to demonstrations will include comfort measures and labor positions and selecting a breast pump, according to a news release.

Photo opportunities and handmade products from local artisans will be available, along with representatives from organizations including the Pediatric Alliance, Pediatric Therapy Professionals, Inc., MOMS Club of Allison Park/Glenshaw, Cribs for Kids, Tender Care Learning Centers and Doodle Bugs! Children’s Learning Academy.

Raffle ticket sale proceeds will benefit Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank , a local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing safe breast milk to babies in need.

A second event will be held at Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South on Aug. 4.

“While last year marked growth and expansion into new cities to successfully serve more parents at our signature events, this year’s priority is about further nurturing our event attendees and online audience to truly feel a part of the Babies & Bumps family,” co-founder and event organizer Monica Infante says in the release.

“There will be more in-person opportunities to connect with local resources and the online Ask the Expert sessions (beginning monthly on April 25 via Facebook Live) will continue to provide support and connectivity throughout the year,” she adds

Tickets are $25, $35 for pairs; attendees must pre-register.
