EXPECTANT parents and new mums and dads can discover some top tips at a free pregnancy and baby fair.

The Birthability fair will see local midwives and therapists share everything they know about pregnancy, birth and life with a young baby.

At the event – which is being held between 11am and 2pm on Sunday October 18 at Chase Meadow Community Centre in Warwick – new parents can bring along their baby and learn how to safely use a sling, learn about local classes and create keepsake hand prints.

There will also be talks about home and hospital births.

Organisers are also asking for donations of second hand baby slings, blankets and unused packs of nappies to support young families through charity Helping Hands.

Sarah Cossey, who helps run the Birthability planning classes, said: “Slings in particular can really help a new mum get out daily despite challenges such as living in first floor accommodations or not wanting to get on public transport with a buggy.

“We hope to make a difference without asking people to put their hands in their pockets by recycling unused and outgrown items.”
