New parents and veteran parents have one thing in common: they are always searching for answers to pressing questions revolving around their child. Often those questions loom heavy during the night, which is when moms and dads scour the Internet searching for support. BabyCenter has been providing support and information to over 45 million parents since 1997.
BabyCenter will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with a member of the BabyCenter team, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the Chicago Baby Show.

What are the most popular and/or newest programs from BabyCenter?
From the same people that brought parents the “My baby is the size of a…” fruit and vegetable comparisons, addictive weekly emails, and an award-winning app, comes My Pregnancy – the first pregnancy skill for Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service, and the newest way for expectant parents to get the best information for their pregnancy.
Powered by BabyCenter, My Pregnancy brings medically reviewed information and real-world tips together to create a unique journey through the most important months of a parent’s life.
