During these critical times, these mothers need your help. Reach out to these women and comfort them through your support of the MomCare Project created for the University of Virginia Hospital by AlbemarleFamily and join the MomCare Walk at 9am on Saturday, May 12. The walk will be followed by the first ever Mom Expo! Guests will be welcome to peruse the dozens of vendors in attendance, have lunch in the courtyard accompanied by live harp music, get a massage, a free flower and more delightful treats. There will be lectures scheduled throughout the day featuring keynote speaker Jennifer Niesslein author of “Practically Perfect In Every Way” and editor of Brain, Child Magazine.
