Texas County Memorial Hospital’s obstetrics department and local area businesses are sponsoring a Baby Quest Adventure from 8 a.m. until noon Friday, Aug. 5, in the Jayson Gentry Community Safe Room on campus.

The Baby Quest Adventure is a no-cost educational community event for expecting and new parents, grandparents, babysitters and anyone interested in learning more about pregnancy and parenting.  

Nursing staff from TCMH labor and delivery will offer education on breastfeeding, infant CPR, water and home safety, nutrition and hydration, diapering and bathing station, healthy pregnancy tips and babysitting.
