A huge thank you to our title sponsor, Once Upon a Child. Once Upon A Child buys and sells gently used kids’ clothing, shoes, toys and baby gear offering you the opportunity to recycle your children’s nearly new items and get paid on the spot. You can rest assured that products found in your neighborhood store meet current safety standards and have not been recalled. Once Upon a Child has two Charleston locations in West Ashley and North Charleston.
We are thrilled to welcome these professionals to speak and teach about all things pregnancy, childbirth, infant care, postpartum issues, fitness, and so much more. Regardless of how many children you have, there’s always something to ask or something new to learn. Here are the experts serving on our panel.
