For 30 years, expectant – and new – parents, grandparents and friends have gathered annually for CoxHealth’s annual Baby Affair. This year’s event, scheduled for April 7 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Cox South, promises to be ­­­­more fun, educational and informative than ever. 

The free event, which is come-and-go, is designed with all things baby and parenting in mind. It’s perfect for anyone planning a pregnancy, expecting a baby, or is a new parent. For the convenience of attendees, valet parking will be offered at the West Tower entrance.

Participants can enjoy a variety of vendor displays, demonstrations, and door prizes. Scheduled classes feature topics including grandparenting, breastfeeding while heading back to work, and physical changes and fitness strategies for new mothers.

Those planning to attend are welcome to bring cloth or disposable diapers – of any brand or size – for the CoxHealth Diaper Drive. All donations collected during the Baby Affair benefit Diaper Bank of the Ozarks.

Attendees seeking class times or more information about the event should contact The Women’s Center at 417-269-LADY or click here.
