A showcase happening at The Forks on Friday will give new and expectant mothers the opportunity to browse eco-friendly and natural products.
The Naturally Mom & Me Showcase is a full-day event featuring local manufacturers, such as Mama Pacha, Sew Dandee, Colibri Canada, Little Feather Designs, and other. In addition to Manitoba-made products, Generation Green will display several organic Canadian products, including First Food Organics and Earth Mama Angel Baby.
“There’s so much talent right here in Manitoba, so why not showcase it?” said Sherry Sobey, owner and operator of Generation Green. “A lot of these manufacturers are bringing products that are new and that nobody’s seen yet.”
There will be four presentations over the course of the day:
10:30 a.m. — Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness Q & A with Fit 4 Two instructor Natalie Kulczycki
12:30 p.m. — Nutrition during your childbearing years with Tressa Main from Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods
2 p.m. — Find out what a doula can do for you with Birth Roots Doula Collective
3:30 p.m. — Learn the basics of baby-wearing with Winnipeg Babywearers
The showcase runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in The Forks’ tower atrium.
