We get asked a lot, who exactly is the Virginia Birth Expo for?
Answer, you. More specifically the Virginia Birth Expo focuses on the whole family and their needs.
So you've had your first baby and things went well, yorue expecting again and wondering if the Virginia Birth Expo is a good investment for you? It is, because just as each baby is different, each pregnancy, delivery, recovery and parenting journey will be different.
Your second baby may not be as quiet or laid back as your fist, Nursing might be different this time around and you'll need resources and support and tools to reach your goals. Perhaps breastfeeding will be out of the question and resources for transitioning into a new plan might require an extra set of hands for support. Even if you have had an amazing breastfeeding journey, our breastfeeding workshop might be the perfect place to sit in and listen. Learn some new things and encourage the women who are there learning for the first time.
Perhaps you want this baby to sleep better. You know, doesn't wake up every hour or is sleeping in a crib by 6 months, our Sleep Expert Sasha from THRIVE SLEEP solutions will be giving a workshop on getting baby to sleep, and tips to establish healthy sleep habits from the start. For your entrance ticket price, you have access to a workshop with a highly recommended sleep expert that may make your next parenting journey completely different this time around.
Parenting resources for all desired parenting journeys. Whether you are a planner, goal setter or just go with the flow kind of parent, you will find valued and vetted resources for you and your partner.
Bring the older siblings so they can have some fun and prepare to meet their new baby sibling in the next few months at our diaper change and bottle feeding activity center. Bring the whole family no matter the size and enjoy a day of workshops, swag, fabulous raffle items and connecting with the community.
The goal of the Virginia Birth Expo is to connect. Connect you with community. Connect resources to new families. And to connect families. So bring your conceptions plans, bring your belly or bring your babies, there is something for you here.

The consequences of not being changed often enough range from mild to severe, however, no parent should have to feel the need to stretch a diaper use out! We present to you the Virginia Birth Expo Diaper Drive!
Giving back to our community feels amazing. Our goal is to collect 8,000 diapers for our fist diaper drive! We are thankful for your support in helping us reach our goals. We will have donation boxes set up around Winchester and Leesburg, with a location blog coming soon!
