Erlanger East Campus Has “Spring Training” Baby Fair April 23

Saturday, April 23, 2005

“Spring Training” – A Baby Fair at Erlanger’s Women’s East Campus - will be Sunday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The fair will feature the latest information on breastfeeding, pre-natal classes, nutrition and more as well as booths showcasing the newest trends in nursery décor, clothing and toys. In addition, area professionals will conduct lectures on everything from signs of labor to how to provide a loving and nurturing environment for your child.

“Spring Training” will also offer an added bonus for dads to be. Not only can expectant dads gather the latest health information and fashion trends for their baby, they can brush up on their putting skills by taking a few putts on the putting green, officials said.

Dads attending the “Give Your Child the Home Team Advantage” lecture will also have an opportunity to win a gift certificate to Lowe’s.

In addition, tours of the maternity floors, including the birthing suites, special care nursery and holding nursery will be available throughout the day. Moms will also have the opportunity to register for a Chattanooga Lookouts Skybox Baby Shower, a $250 shopping spree at Babies R Us, as well as other door prizes and giveaways.

Admission and shuttle service from the parking lot is free. Please register by calling 778-LINK (5465) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
