BABIES

Because of the professional nature of this offering, quiet infants under the age of 6 months are welcome. However, restless infants will require immediate attention outside the meeting room as a courtesy to other participants and for the comfort of the baby.  Some mothers bring a support person to provide baby care outside the meeting rooms to fully participate in the education sessions.
