As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
Whether you are a brand new parent who can’t tell a swaddle from a bottle, or a veteran of the diaper wars, having a community of trusted fellow parents to lean on is invaluable. They share the journey of having children, through the ups and the downs. A Mother’s Haven not only provides that close-knit community, but they also have fantastic classes and products available as well. The LA Baby Show is proud to have them as a partner.
To learn more about A Mother’s Haven, we spoke with the owner, Bianca B.
