UPDATE: Congrats, Carol! And that's so cool that you're feeling the baby kick. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address. Thanks to everyone who participated, and sorry I'm so late in announcing!
Happy May Day! Not only is today the first day of May, but it's also the kick-off of Pregnancy Awareness Month, a month dedicated to helping women during pregnancy learn more about nutrition, exercise and, as the organization says, "all-around nurturing."
There is also an amazing free event planned for Sunday, May 6, at the Skirball Cultural Center. Held annually since P.A.M. was established in 2008 by author Anna Getty and producer Alisa Donner, the event should be a fun and informative afternoon for pregnant women, new parents, new grandparents and families with young kids. There are also other events scheduled outside of the L.A. area.
In honor of the event, I'm giving away a Britax Accessories Package (value $55.97). See giveaway info below!
