Guide to Maternity and Infant Care

Staff Writer
Columbus Parent

Whether you're expecting your first baby or your fifth, parenthood is a whirlwind adventure.

To help central Ohio families navigate all the choices, Columbus Parent has again compiled a guide to local maternity and baby-care options.

From fertility specialists to pediatricians and breast-feeding services to specialized support groups, you'll find resources in numerous areas both before and after baby arrives.

When it comes to retailers, for the sake of space we've limited our list to independent entities rather than trying to list all the big-box stores and major chains.

This guide also is available online at To submit an item from your organization or business for consideration, send an e-mail to
