Expectant mothers were showered Wednesday with information to help them prepare for motherhood.
Dozens of new moms and moms-to-be attended the sixth annual "Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby Shower" at the Charleston Civic Center. Unicare Health Plan of West Virginia hosted the free event, which was open to the Charleston community.
Attendees were provided with lunch, they listened to public speakers and learned how to prepare for the arrival of their new bundles of joy.
"It's just like a typical baby shower but without the games," said Billie Moore, senior health promotion consultant for Unicare. "They have the education. Things that they can really use when they go home."
Unicare hosts baby showers in different West Virginia cities each month.
