Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto, located at 7601 Southcrest Parkway in Southaven, is holding a free Baby Fair on Saturday, May 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The baby fair will be held in the Outdoor Rehabilitation Courtyard and will mark the return of an in-person, outdoor baby fair at the hospital. 

“We are excited to bring back an in-person baby fair for local parents,” said Lori Porter, mother and baby nurse manager at Baptist-DeSoto. “Baptist-DeSoto offers award-winning maternity care for our community close to home and we look forward to sharing our services and experts with new parents.”

During the baby fair, moms, dads and other caregivers can learn about car seat and seat belt safety, get healthy pregnancy tips, receive infant CPR information and learn about breastfeeding and hospital lactation support services. Local vendors, a photo booth, giveaways and a grand prize will be highlights of the day.
