Welcome to LABOR Fest: Learning About Birth Options in Rockford!
Join us for an afternoon of chatting with each other and with local vendors related to birth, babies, and moms! We'll have a silent auction, raffle, prizes, and all you can eat pizza and pasta!!! Most importantly, we're raising awareness for birth options in the Rockford area, including our ICAN chapter. We need more options, evidence based care, and informed consent. Come out for a great afternoon and help support a wonderful cause!
This event is open to everyone: those wanting to learn about birth, those wanting to support, men, women, children, birth professionals, service providers, vendors, and consumers. Welcome!
