Duluth, MN (Northland’s NewsCenter) --- Hundreds of parents and expecting parents learned more about birthing resources and support systems in the Northland.

The bi-annual Birth and Baby Fair at Duluth's Copper Top church this afternoon featured about 50 exhibits related to parenting.

From cloth diapers, to knit hats and whole organic foods, venders sold handmade and eco-friendly products.

Birthing professionals hosted free workshops ranging in topics from attachment to breast feeding and natural birth.

Organizers say the Northland has a widespread birthing community and the fair is a one stop shot to learn more about your birthing options.

"You have lots of choices when it comes to wear you birth, how you birth, who you birth with,” Stacy Holden of Women Circling Women said. “It's not just about birth. It's about the early years so there is things on parenting, and how to be with your kids and attachment and how to wear your kids."

The next Birth and Baby Fair will take place in April.
