Sunday 29th January | 10.30am to 4pm | Free Entry
If you are pregnant, have young children or are even contemplating parenthood, this is one not to miss. The Love Baby Festival will be opening its doors at Paintworks in Bristol once again, promising to be even more fun than last year with a huge collection of all things regarding pregnancy, birth and young families around the Bristol area and beyond.
The Love Food Festival team have joined with Born and Relaxed Birth and Parenting to bring you a mecca of exhibitors, professionals available to offer advice and also the chance to experience some of the lovely treatments to help you relax! All following the ethos of natural birthing and parenting. With practical toys, lovely clothes and delicious healthy food there seems to be something for everyone (there is even going to be a birthing pool that you might like to try out – so don’t forget your swimming costume!)
The treatments on offer include baby yoga, reflexology, baby massage and treatments for mum - both ante and postnatal. Receive a lovely manicure or pedicure (important not to forget those little piggies that you haven’t seen for some time under the burgeoning bump!). There is even the chance to have your bump painted by Art Tart Rose Popay.
For those of you who will be accompanied by little ones the organisers have requested that buggies are not brought into the show – we know that sounds a bit strange but Lorna explained that in previous events it has just got too crowded and in their experience everyone has enjoyed their day far more with babies in slings. For those of you who have walked to Paintworks there will be a buggy park provided. The Love Baby Festival offers a great opportunity to network with other expectant parents or families with babies, find out what is going on in your area, find new friends and enjoy new experiences! Your little ones can enjoy the wonderful Baby Sensory Palace exploring and making new friends. You can relax and enjoy your day as the Love Baby fairies spread their magic!
There is plenty to do to fill the whole day with music, hot and cold food and great facilities for the whole family. We know this one is going to be a really gorgeous day and should be popped down in your diary in capitals!
