Who can attend MOABS?

MOABS is an inclusive event, designed to celebrate pregnancy and parenthood. We invite those who are planning to get pregnant, expectant parents, parents of newborns through preschool-aged children, caretakers, and other families and friends of parents who are looking to learn to join us. That said, MOABS is an adults-only event, with the exception of children in baby carriers who must be worn in carriers throughout the duration of the event.
