Every child has a unique personality. For parents of some children, long nights with lengthybedtime routines and demanding children can be draining until you know how to respond and accommodate those children who need more. Local parents and professionals will talk about the characteristics of high-needs babies and children, and how you can meet those needs as a parent or as someone who knows a parent struggling with a high-needs child. You are invited to bring your questions, concerns and ideas to share.

ACOG (The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) recently published that they recommend healthy, low risk mothers to drink protein shakes while in labor to keep their strength up. YOR Health not only has the best shake on the market but it has an ingredient that no other protein shake has, digestive enzyme for easy and complete absorbtion. Come to the meeting for a taste of these great shakes as well as you may take home a sample to try. Can't wait to see you there!
