Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center’s Family Birthing Center will host the HRRMC Pregnancy and Baby Fair on Saturday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will be held in the hospital’s atrium lobby by the main entrance, 1000 Rush Drive, Salida.

The fair is free and open to everyone. Tours of the HRRMC Family Birthing Center will be available as well as information on breastfeeding, baby care, nutrition and more.

Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a Q & A with local experts as well as a gentle exercise session. Salida Family Medicine’s Vanna Irving, M.D., will also be available to discuss the role of family medicine physicians in our community and the care they provide for every stage of life.

A car seat, breast pump, and other great prizes will be given away at the event.

“This is an excellent opportunity to explore all of the resources available for families,” said Lorrie Hocke, R.N., manager of the HRRMC Family Birthing Center. “Come meet our staff and see how we can help you achieve the birth experience you desire.”

More than 20 exhibitors plan to participate in the fair including Chaffee County Public Health, Salida Early Childhood Center, La Leche League, WIC, Connect for Health Colorado, Planned Parenthood, Nurse-Family Partnership, Monarch Anesthesia and HRRMC Rehabilitation.
