9OYS' Katie Banks to host the 'Making Pitt's Babies Fit' Maternity Fair

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The 22nd Annual Making Pitt's Babies Fit Maternity Fair will raise awareness about premature births this Sunday at the Greenville Convention Center.

9 On Your Side’s Katie Banks will be the host the event from 2-5 p.m.

It’s a fun experience for expecting moms, new parents and grandparents with a purpose: to improve the health of babies in the East.

"Historically North Carolina has a higher infant death rate than the rest of the country,” says Jennifer Hardee, the coordinator of the Women’s and Children’s Health Education Programs with the Pitt County Health Department.

“Unfortunately, Pitt County's rate is even higher than North Carolina’s rate. So we put this event on every year to link families of child-bearing age and other community members to resources to help with improving birth outcomes."

The event is free and open to anyone. There will also be door prizes, a prenatal yoga demonstration, a child safety seat clinic and a maternity fashion show.
