Video: OCH Regional Hospital Hosts Maternity Fair

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – The arrival of a baby can be exciting, and a bit frightening at the same time. Expectant moms in Oktibbeha County attended a special fair this morning as they prepare for their new bundle of joy.

OCH Regional Medical Center hosted their annual Special Beginnings Maternity and Infant Fair. The event provides valuable information about labor and delivery, infant CPR and car seat safety. Expectant parents watched demonstrations, received brochures and had their questions answered by professionals.

“It’s a good resource for new and expectant moms. There’s a lot of information on breastfeeding and breast pumpers, infant CPR. My baby is due July 21st so we’re trying to soak in all the information we can before the baby comes. >

There were also door prizes that included complimentary prenatal classes, massages and diaper give-aways.
