PREGNANCY AWARENESS MONTH
Did you know that May is Pregnancy Awareness Month? Pregnancy is a wonderful thing to celebrate and deserves a month of its own.
Expectant moms in Chicago have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming weeks. May is Pregnancy Awareness Month and Chicago is celebrating in a big way thanks to the efforts of Bump Club Chicago and Fit Pregnancy.

Goodies and Prizes will be available from several other pregnancy and baby related businesses.
