Prana Prenatal & Newborn Exp

  • ​When you’re expecting or newly postpartum, it can be overwhelming figuring out what you need to prepare for your new life as a family.

There are so many services out there ready to help you out and many of them are right in your backyard!
  • Our expo is for the local business so you get that personal connection. The vast majority of our vendors are small business owners and moms themselves so you’ll be supporting local entrepreneurs and getting advice from those that have been there!
