Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY -

The Healthy Preg­nancy, Healthy Baby Con­fer­ence will be pre­sented on Satur­day, April 30, at the UCCU Cen­ter on the Utah Val­ley Univer­sity cam­pus in Orem.

Some of the top birthing ex­perts will be pre­sent­ing at the event with speak­ers rang­ing from mid­wives to nurses, lac­ta­tion con­sul­tants to nu­tri­tion­ists and child­birth ed­u­ca­tors to chi­ro­prac­tors. Six­teen classes on a va­ri­ety of top­ics will be of­fered at the con­fer­ence from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Have you ever won­dered: What should I eat dur­ing preg­nancy or while nurs­ing? How can I heal and avoid acid re­flux or thrush in my baby? What are some nat­u­ral reme­dies in­clud­ing herbs and essen­tial oils that I can use to heal com­mon preg­nancy and baby ail­ments? How can I help pre­vent or re­verse food al­ler­gies in my chil­dren? How can I cre­ate an ef­fec­tive birthing plan and be in charge of my hospital birth? How I can over­come post­par­tum de­pres­sion with­out med­i­ca­tion? These are just a few of the ques­tions that will be an­swered at this full-day con­fer­ence.

“The qual­ity of speak­ers has been more than we ever an­tic­i­pated when we start­ing to put this con­fer­ence to­gether. It has been as­tound­ing and very ex­cit­ing,” said Jana Roberts, co-founder of the con­fer­ence. “This con­fer­ence will of­fer so much wis­dom and knowl­edge for preg­nant women and moth­ers.”

One of the best parts of the con­fer­ence will be the pan­els. There will be two pan­els with mid­wives, doulas, nu­tri­tion­ists, a chi­ro­prac­tor and an herbal­ist where peo­ple can ask their per­sonal and in­di­vid­ual ques­tions. This will be a great op­por­tu­nity to get ques­tions an­swered

“I am de­lighted to be in­volved in an ini­tia­tive that em­pow­ers par­ents and par­ents-to-be with in­for­ma­tion and re­sources,” said Richelle Jol­ley, a mid­wife for more than 15 years. “This con­fer­ence of­fers the pub­lic an op­por­tu­nity to broaden aware­ness in or­der to in­crease ca­pac­ity to make choices and nur­ture con­fi­dence and self-re­liance through­out preg­nancy, child­birth and par­ent­ing.”

“The con­fer­ence cost is low be­cause we want hun­dreds to be able to par­tic­i­pate,” Roberts said. “Ad­di­tion­ally, at­ten­dees will be able to get baby and preg­nancy sup­plies and ser­vices.” Read­ers of this pub­li­ca­tion are of­fered a spe­cial ad­mis­sion price of two at­ten­dees for $10 (a $20 sav­ings) by us­ing the coupon code “servedaily.” If you’re a cur­rent col­lege stu­dent, you can use coupon code “imas­tu­dent” to get in for the in­cred­i­bly low price of two for $7.
