Pregnancy and infant care

As a midwife and women’s health professional who previously worked at Women’s Excellence in Birmingham, Rhonda Sobh saw firsthand the needs of pregnant women. In response, she opened The Pregnancy Bar in Birmingham’s 555 Building, which she describes as “a spa for pregnant women.” The Pregnancy Bar offers ultrasounds, IV therapies, gender reveals, booster shots, hormone testing for non-pregnant women, blood work for egg counts, prenatal massages and belly facials, among other services. “Our vision is to create a haven where expectant mothers can indulge in a range of premium services designed to enhance both their physical well-being and emotional connection with their growing baby,” Sobh said. In the beginning of March, she expanded her offerings by opening The Baby Bar, 244 E. Maple Road in downtown Birmingham in the former EGG location, offering high quality luxury maternity and baby clothes. Sobh said she had started a podcast, and through her patients, many who follow her on Instagram, she learned how difficult it was to find clothing and spaces to embody pregnancy. “When presented with this space, I signed. I knew I wanted to offer modern and elevated maternity clothing. I wanted it to be affordable for whoever my followers are, to also be comfortable for postpartum wear,” Sobh said. The Baby Bar also offers a selection of infant clothing, from newborn to 2T. She said a lot of the clothing for mothers and babies are 100 percent organic cotton, to be both comfortable and fashionable. Another factor is her Lebanese heritage, which she wanted to introduce through a few Lebanese designers. “The store is very fashion-forward.” A tailor is available in-store for custom pieces for baptisms, baby shoots and clothing for baby showers.
