Labor Day: Third Annual Rally To Improve Birth

improvingbirthKentucky moms can head downtown on Monday, Sept. 7 for the third annual Rally to Improve Birth and learn about all the pregnancy and childbirth options Lexington has to offer.
The rally will run from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Cheapside Park Pavilion. Vendor tables will be set up so parents can visit with various care providers, photographers, doulas, maternity businesses and more.
Rally Coordinator Chante Perryman said the event is about providing evidence-based information for women.
“We believe that women can make safer, more informed decisions about their care and that of their babies when they are given full and accurate information about their care options, including the potential harms, benefits and alternatives,” she said.
The rally is family-friendly, with children’s activities, giveaways and a nursing area.
Perryman said all parents can benefit from the rally, whether they are expecting their first, second or third child or still trying to conceive.
“I would say to a new or expectant mom that she will receive evidenced-based information that she can review and better equip her for the remainder of her pregnancy as well as her labor,” Perryman said.
“For second time parents, if they are looking to have a different outcome from their first pregnancy, this is where they can get that information.”
