“Becoming a parent is life changing, and although the transition is never truly seamless, our goal is to help make it as seamless as possible,” says Lanny Dowell, Parent Education and Doula Coordinator. “From breast- and bottle-feeding supplies to helpful parenting books and DVDs like The Happiest Baby on the Block, we serve as a resource for all mothers alike.”

Ms. Dowell elaborates on another passion held by the staff of the Parent Education Department and Parent Connection Store: “We want women to feel good about themselves during their transitions into motherhood, and the products we carry reflect that priority,” she says. “By offering a large selection of sleek and sophisticated products, we aim to help women embrace the body changes associated with pregnancy and keep their confidence levels high.”

The Parent Connection store is located on the second floor of GBMC’s main hospital, past the Harvey Institute for Human Genetics. Store hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
