DayOne Center for New and Expectant Mothers Opens in Walnut Creek

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- DayOne will open its newest center in Walnut Creek this Saturday in the midst of stagnating retail forecasts and the lowest consumer confidence in 16 years. But the move begs the obvious question: What is it about DayOne that positions the company for growth in today's marketplace?

DayOne is the next generation of retail-integrating information services, health care advice and social networking under one roof. In addition to providing high quality products for new families, DayOne offers health and fitness programs for moms and babies, educational programs for new families, and access to health care professionals to meet the needs of expectant and new mothers.

"At both our San Francisco and Palo Alto locations, we've found that DayOne has fostered a community; quickly becoming a meeting place and network for new and expectant moms in the area," explains Andrew Zenoff, CEO and founder of DayOne Centers. "DayOne is a service business first and foremost. We are a resource center with all of the essentials to save families time and money."

DayOne works in a complimentary fashion with local health care providers to enhance the information, services and products available to women and their families. A team of certified lactation consultants, child development specialists, nurses and other health care professionals staff the centers, providing quality advice to mothers and the experience to recommend products that meet their needs.

"The staff at DayOne have truly helped to assist us in the care of our patients. The families we refer receive individual attention from competent, caring professionals who use their expertise to teach and reassure anxious parents," conveys Dr. Jane Anderson, M.D. and Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF Medical Center.

DayOne has been voted by SF Weekly as the "Best Place to Go" after having a baby and received a 5-star rating from The Lila Guide. DayOne was founded in 2000 when Andrew Zenoff, inventor of the My Brest Friend breastfeeding pillow, and Nancy Held, an expert in perinatal nursing, joined forces to open the first Day One center in San Francisco. DayOne's second center opened in Palo Alto in March 2006.

The DayOne Center in Walnut Creek will open June 7 at 10:00 am. It will be open seven days a week.
