Baby fair comes to Greenwood Park Mall

There’s going to be a lot of baby talk going on at Greenwood Park Mall on Aug. 24.

That’s because Franciscan St. Francis Health is hosting “Inspiring You – Mommy, Baby & Beyond, a new and informative fair for mothers and expecting parents. The event, which will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Von Maur (inside mall near Applebee’s), enables participants to meet with staff from the Women and Children’s Center and to learn about programs and services offered to patients and children.

Attendees can experience the soothing effects of aromatherapy, relax in massage chairs, and receive a variety of giveaways and prizes. Parents may also enroll their babies (up to 12 months old) for a Diaper Derby Race — open to the first 10 boy and girl babies to register.

Visitors will be able to learn about Franciscan St. Francis’ plans to renovate and expand the Women and Children’s Center. The 100,000-square-foot project encompasses the first through fourth floors at the Indianapolis campus at 8111 S. Emerson Ave., Indianapolis.

Once the renovations are complete in early 2015, the center will have seven triage rooms and an infusion area for newly admitted patients, 12 expanded labor and delivery rooms, eight large antepartum suites with in-room refrigerators, two operating room suites for caesarean procedures, 30 postpartum suites and a nursery, 24 private neonatal intensive care rooms, and 10 “kid-friendly” pediatric rooms.

More than 45,000 babies have been born since 1995, when obstetric and pediatric services were consolidated at Franciscan St. Francis-Indianapolis. The hospital delivers an average of 2,400 infants annually.
