Having a happy, healthy baby and a good birth experience can’t be left to chance. It’s something that takes planning.

To help educate aspiring parents, Hudson Valley Hospital Center held its annual “Art of Having a Baby” Maternity Fair on May 5 to give couples practical advice on the road to parenthood even if they are not yet expecting, but just considering having a baby.

“People spend months and years planning for their wedding,’’ said Sabrina Nitkowski-Keever, Director of Maternal/Child Health at Hudson Valley Hospital Center. “It’s important that couples understand that the decisions they make leading up to the birth of their child can make all the difference, not only for the health of their baby, but for the quality of their birth experience.’’
