Expectant mothers, new mothers, their friends and family members are invited to Great Expectations, Sunday, Aug. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m., at Thomas Hospital, Mobile Infirmary and North Baldwin Infirmary.

The premier event with “all things baby” offers attendees the opportunity to visit with OBGYNs, pediatricians, local retail vendors and tour our birth centers. There will also be door prizes and physician and educational booths.
