We’ve had separate Mom and Baby expos in the past but this will be a first for both in one giant expo this coming April! The Mom and Baby Expo Philippines will be a much-awaited event for mommies and expectant moms! Expect a lot of shopping but this time, there will be series of talks, workshops, raffle draws, and so much more!
Last January 24th, we met the organizers, the Perinatal Association of the Philippines (PAP) to gather more information on the upcoming Mom and Baby Expo. The press including the mommy bloggers present got excited and asked questions after questions. It was an interesting topic and event and we would like to spread the news to mommies out there!
The exhibit showcases all facets of comprehensive perinatal healthcare such as products, services, technology and new methods, all of which are intended in aiding Filipina mothers and their infants.
“Our objective is simple yet powerful: to impart bits of advices and traverse new ideas moms and expectant moms can use that will ultimately strengthen their maternal bond with their babies,” says PAP President Dra. Belen Velasco. “This is very exciting because this is something big, something we have envisioned to happen for the longest time. And now, finally, we are doing it.”
The Mom and Baby Expo 2017 will showcase a series of talks from perinatal experts, pocket workshops, fun and informative activities, selling booths, food stalls and much more. “In the past, we have mounted a number of interesting, fun and successful assemblies in the aim of improving the health of both mothers and infants. This year, we are very proud our passionate members with decades of proven and justified experience in their fields of expertise, led by Dra. Velasco thought of this exhibition” shares Dr. Diosdado Mariano, past PAP President. “The Expo is an opportunity to analyze and seek solutions to existing issues pertaining to maternal-fetal and newborn areas in an engaging and fun way.”
