#RGV Great Expectations Maternity Fair *Event*

Afternoon mamas! I have a great event to share with ya'll. It's happening tomorrow in McAllen, Texas!

It's the GREAT EXPECTATIONS MATERNITY FAIR! I'm excited because I have never been to an event like this, best part (hubby says) it's FREE!

South Texas Health System says...
We invite the community to take part in this free event aimed at providing parents with information about the entire birthing process. The event is family-centric. Children, fathers, mothers and partners are invited, because bringing a child into this world is accomplished better together. This event is about listening to one another and learning from one another. There's not only presentations and tours, but the chance to ask questions and talk to doctors and staff that play such a significant role in a family's life.
Hope to see you there if you plan on attending. There will be many vendors and door prizes and even a silent auction! All proceeds raised will benefit the March of Dimes.
