The Babies & Bumps event for new and expectant parents and their families will be held April 14 at the Pittsburgh Marriott North. Shown is an earlier event, where numerous organizations offer families information and education as they prepare and care for their newborns.

New and expectant parents may want to check out the Babies & Bumps event, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 14, at the Pittsburgh Marriott North, Cranberry.

Experts will lead seminars on subjects related to pregnancy, childbirth and the transition to parenthood. How-to demonstrations will include comfort measures and labor positions and selecting a breast pump, according to a news release.

Photo opportunities and handmade products from local artisans will be available, along with representatives from organizations including the Pediatric Alliance, Pediatric Therapy Professionals, Inc., MOMS Club of Allison Park/Glenshaw, Cribs for Kids, Tender Care Learning Centers and Doodle Bugs! Children's Learning Academy.

Raffle ticket sale proceeds will benefit Mid-Atlantic Mothers' Milk Bank , a local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing safe breast milk to babies in need.

A second event will be held at Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South on Aug. 4.

“While last year marked growth and expansion into new cities to successfully serve more parents at our signature events, this year's priority is about further nurturing our event attendees and online audience to truly feel a part of the Babies & Bumps family,” co-founder and event organizer Monica Infante says in the release.

“There will be more in-person opportunities to connect with local resources and the online Ask the Expert sessions (beginning monthly on April 25 via Facebook Live) will continue to provide support and connectivity throughout the year,” she adds

Tickets are $25, $35 for pairs; attendees must pre-register.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
