New and expectant parents in Orlando are in for a treat as The Mother of All Baby Showers, presented by Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies, arrives on May 12, offering an adults-only night out packed with must-have baby products, informational sessions and resources, celebrity parenting influencers, free gifts, and even some free parent pampering.
Back after COVID and better than ever, this year’s popular one-stop-new-parent-shop will be hosted at the Orlando Science Center. Beginning at 6PM, parents will be showered with expert advice and resources, exclusive deals, food, refreshments, mini spa treatments, giveaways, and more. A don’t-miss opportunity to learn the basics and prep for the realities of parenting, attendees will hear from and meet with a variety of parenting experts who will answer their most pressing pregnancy and parenting questions (with no judgment!).
This year’s event is sponsored by Orlando Health Winnie Palmer. Nationally recognized as a best hospital for maternity care, the hospital welcomes an average of 13,000 babies every year and cares for the tiniest and most critical patients in one of the nation’s largest neonatal intensive care units. “As one of the largest delivery hospitals in the U.S., our team has the honor of being a part of about 40 birthdays each day,” said Suzanne Worthington, president of Orlando Health Winnie Palmer. “We believe every mother deserves access to the best possible care and resources, and The Mother of All Baby Showers event is an excellent opportunity for us to support and connect with expectant and new parents in our community.”
Educational sessions cover all things pregnancy and parenting, including prenatal health, maternal mental health, sleep safety, pediatrics, and more. Experts on top for this year’s popular one-stop-new-parent-shop include the nation’s top pediatric sleep coach, Courtney Zentz of Tiny Transitions; journalist and host of the We Gotta Talk™ podcast, Sonni Abatta; award-winning author and speaker, Rachel Sobel of @Whineandcheezits; and many more.
Attendees can also speak with representatives from hand-picked local and national maternity, juvenile, and family-focused brands (many created for parents, by parents!) at The Test Before You Invest area.
“I am so proud to partner with presenting sponsor Orlando Health Winnie Palmer, Chicco, Florida Prepaid, and so many other amazing brands and services to provide this invaluable resource to new parents in Orlando,” said Amy Lundy, founder of The Mother of All Baby Showers. “This year’s line-up of parenting experts and baby and child brands promises to be one of the best Mother of All Baby Showers yet and we’re so thrilled to offer this opportunity to educate and celebrate Florida’s new parents.”
