RMH Family Birthplace
will host a free Family Fair from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.
The Family Fair is open to all ages including families expecting a child. The Family Birthplace will unveil its annual baby collage during the Family Fair, showcasing many of the more than 1,725 babies born at RMH in 2012.
The tradition of creating and displaying the baby collage began in 1991.
“We send a letter out to all moms asking for their baby's picture for the collage,” said Sabrina Shiflett, director, Family Birthplace. “It’s amazing how many women come to see their baby in the collage. When you look at the collage, it just makes you smile and feel warm inside. There is nothing more precious and joyful than a baby’s sweet face. Every face in the collage is unique and every face is absolutely priceless. The collage represents the changing diversity of our community. In these collages are the citizens of the community RMH will continue to serve for many years to come.”
Additional events for the Family Fair include:
- Educational exhibits by RMH programs and services, including the new Emergency Department Pediatrics Pod
- Activities for children
- Room displays in Family Birthplace and Pediatrics
- Door prizes
Refreshments will be provided and no registration is required. For more information, contact Healthsource at 540-564-7200.
