Parenting: Help for new families

"Any family with a new baby can use a helping hand." That's the motto of Good Beginnings of Central Vermont, a longstanding nonprofit that pairs new families with a trained volunteer. The group's first-ever Good Beginnings Baby & Child Expo Extravaganza will raise funds for services that can include at-home visits, meal prep and support for pregnant women on bed rest. Good Beginnings executive director Alison Lamagna describes the expo as "a place for people to come together and learn about some of the resources and products that are out there for parents." Workshops and special events range from Cloth Diapering 101 to the Baby-Wearing Fashion Show. Little ones can get up to speed at the Crawling Olympics.

Good Beginnings Baby & Child Expo Extravaganza: Saturday, April 13, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at Montpelier High School gymnasium. $5; free for ages 18 and under. Immediately following the expo, Thomas Balmès' documentary Babies screens in the auditorium. Donations accepted. Info, 595-7953, goodbeginningscentralvt.org.
