The new issue of Columbus Parent starts arriving on Monday! The theme for October is "Having a Baby" and we tried some new things that we hope you'll enjoy. Instead of the kids, we "well-dressed" the expectant mom. We've also amassed a very comprehensive directory of the Central Ohio hospitals where people give birth (with useful data on each) plus listings for the kinds of services and products that expectant families need (prenatal massage, anyone?). And the centerpiece/showpiece of our issue and our website is the in-depth experience we enjoyed following Maddy Bumgarner, a truly extraordinary labor and delivery nurse, during a day in her life (and met a new life who arrived that day).

As always you can use our zip-code searchable database http://www.columbusparent.com/content/pages/locations.html to find a pick-up location near you!
