Take a Pregnant Pause and join the community supporting expecting mums going alcohol free for their little bubbas-to-be.
Pregnant Pause is a fun and innovative campaign that encourages Australians to go alcohol free during their pregnancy, or the pregnancy of their partner, family member, friend or loved one.
We understand that the seemingly easy task of giving up alcohol can be challenging in a community where alcohol and socialising often goes hand in hand.
Alcohol consumption during pregnancy is associated with a range of adverse consequences including Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). That’s why the current Australian Governmentguidelines state that not drinking alcohol is the safest option during pregnancy.
Pregnant Pause wants to make it easier on mums-to-be, with a campaign that builds a strong support system to help women achieve an alcohol-free pregnancy and raise awareness of this important health message.
Sign up for a Pregnant Pause today and you could also go into the draw to win one of nine Google Home Minis!
Be a hero, take zero!
Pregnant Pause is an initiative developed by the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) and supported by the ACT Government under the Health Promotion Grants Program.
The Valcobaby Team will be onsite during the show providing demonstrations of our latest and exclusive stroller arrivals. We will also have a number of great value deals, VIP offers and a wealth of knowledge and tips.

Tiny babies grow so fast, particularly during their first year - coincidentally, the same period when they're most likely to wear cute little onesies all the time! I found it frustrating that at different times, onesies would fit just right around the middle, only to be too short to button. So I'd have to buy the next size up, which would inevitably look way too big on my little one. Parents using cloth nappies will know the struggle too.
But if you are a bit savvy like me, you will like my little cheat. My handmade onesie extenders add a few centimetres in length--and a few extra months of wearing time. They snap on easily, come in a range of colours and patterns, and they are compatible with all the major brands.
