On Sunday, Jan. 12, Greenwich Hospital welcomed hundreds of parents-to-be to its 8th annual Pregnancy Primer. Each year, the event draws hundreds of visitors from New York and Connecticut, including grandparents and siblings.

This year, the event drew a record crowd of nearly 300. As anyone who’s had a baby knows, there’s that moment when the nurse hands you your baby and wheels you out to your car for the trip home – and all you can think is, “Now what?” Most likely, it’s the same thought you had right after hearing, “Congratulations, you’re pregnant!”

Greenwich Hospital’s Pregnancy Primer is a “one-stop shopping” educational event for parents-to-be and those just thinking about becoming pregnant.

As the name suggests, the event primes parents-to-be for what to expect before, during and after childbirth and in doing so calms the “now whats?” From OBGYNs, fertility specialists, anesthesiologists and pediatricians to breastfeeding consultants, NICU nurses and yoga/meditation instructors, there was someone on hand at the event to answer any questions expectant parents had.

Tours of the Maternity Department birthing center were given every 15 minutes during the course of the Primer.
