Who can be a presenter at the Birth and Baby Fest?
This event was created to specifically cater to pregnant and parenting people. It was created with the goal of being approachable, relevant, and supportive. That being said, all vendors and presenters must adhere to CIMS’ Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative and WHO’s International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes. The organizer reserves the right to not enter into a vendor or presenter agreement with businesses or agencies that do not meet these standards or are not relevant to the overall theme and goals of the event.

All applications must be submitted by September 15, 2023 in order to be considered. You will be notified prior to October 1, 2023 if you have approval to conduct your presentation or activity at this year's event.
Presentations must be relevant to pregnant people and/or families with a baby or small child. Interactive activities can be applicable to either adults or small children (pre-school-aged or below).
