Natural Parenting Fair Memories

La Leche League Leader Caryn, who has attended all 6 previous Natural Parenting Fairs, shares some memories:

In the middle of 2012, I was 12 weeks pregnant and attended the Natural Parenting Fair, my first parenting-related event. I was nervous going somewhere new alone, and felt a bit out of place at first, especially since I didn’t even look pregnant yet.  But I felt really welcomed and enjoyed being able to discover so many resources our area has available.

I also loved having the opportunity to meet with the representatives of the companies that intrigued me. I have been to all 6 fairs and have really enjoyed being a part of this community, eventually through volunteering at the fair as a member and then as a Leader of Space Coast La Leche League.

I hope you come out this year and have a good time!
