At the event:

Two workshops: Parent participants signed up for the workshops will leave the main hall to go to the upstairs room.

Professional Interaction/Demo Areas: The main hall will be set up with four focus areas where professionals will have an opportunity for interaction with parent participants around specific topics. When registering, please indentify yourself with one of these areas listed below. You will not be required to remain at this "home" Demo area for the event, but you may wish to collaborate on the set up of the areas - Labor Tips area might need a couple of birth balls and rebozos. Supporting Your Body area does not need 3 hanging spines, but might want to have a massage table, pelvic model, etc for demonstrations. Each area will need to be set up communally with appropriate props.

Demo Areas: Baby's Here! - Labor Tips - Birth at Home - Supporting Your Body - Community Resources - Babywearing (in the Studio)

Marketing your business or service: Registered providers are encouraged to participate in informal and ongoing interactions throughout the event in various Demo Areas. There will be one communal marketing table in each Demo Area where your Business cards and brochure may be placed. You are welcome to bring a brochure holder and/or business card holder for your materials; however, you may also want to keep cards with you to hand to people as they interact with you. There is no individual table/space for personal marketing displays.
