Talk & Trade Free

Children have a lot of stuff. Clothes, shoes, books, toys, bedding, feeding supplies, decorations, ect. . . They collect this stuff through family and friends buying it, hand me downs, and sometimes what seems like magic. Then they outgrow this stuff and the adults are left to figure out what to do with it while working on getting new age appropriate stuff.

Well, that's where the idea for this event came from. We wanted to pass along the stuff our children outgrew that still had life in it and collect a couple new to us age appropriate items. We were so thankful for all the gifts and hand me downs our children had received that we wanted to continue with the giving spirit.

Photos With The Easter Bunny! Free

Come bring your little one to our weekly Open Play and have a special opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny! Free of charge, feel free to take your own pictures (donations will be happily accepted).

Sign Making Party Free

Join us for a sign making party for the March For Mom's Rally to Improve Birth.

While consumers, health care professionals and diverse stakeholders gather in the nation’s capital for the March for Moms, the annual Rally to Improve Birth will take place simultaneously in states and communities across the country.

One in every three Americans is born through major surgery and we have the highest rates of maternal death and injury, the lowest birth weights, and the widest disparities in the entire developed world.

We believe that birth can be better and that it matters for the lifelong mental health and well-being of the entire family.

We believe that women are the ultimate decisions makers in childbirth, and they have the right to be treated with dignity and compassion.

We believe that the U.S. maternity care system is decades behind what we know is best for mothers and babies and that there is no real motivation for the system to change.

But most importantly, we believe that when consumers and health care professionals have the tools to inspire change, they will take action.

For more information on the birth please go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/1296020110500941/

Why Not Home Movie Screening & Discussion Free

Join us to see ALL the options for birth in Reno and to watch and discuss the film.

"Why Not Home?"

The documentary that tells the stories of doctors, nurses, and midwives who have attended hundreds of hospital births, yet chose to have their children at home. How did these women with inside knowledge of birth evaluate the evidence and make their decisions? Through the experiences of these women, both at home and in the hospital, we gain unique insights into risk, safety, and the experience of childbirth in America.
