SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – There were great expectations Saturday at the Utah State Fairpark where mothers-to-be learned about options for having their babies at the Pregnancy and Beyond Expo.

Utah has the highest birth rate in the nation and organizers of this event want to support women preparing for the arrival of their first..or second or third or fourth child. Saturday’s expo featured informational booths and giveaways, all with the goal of connecting women with available resources and support.

“We have service providers that are here to answer questions,” Deanna Gordon, the CEO of Genesis Birth Company explained. “Things about pregnancy, having a doula, using lactation support, the struggles that we have for breastfeeding and then post partum supports as well, so mental health issues. We have a lot of mental health providers here supplying education and resources for women so they know how to reach out and where to reach out after they’ve had the baby.”
