We have attended less and less of these mum and baby expos as the little man gets bigger. The first ever Mom and Baby Expo by the Perinatal Association of the Philippines {PAP} was an exception, though. Since I wrote about the expo earlier this year, naturally, I would love to check it out. And since I was in SM Megamall that very same weekend, I went and checked the event out with my little one and my sis, Bel.

Entrance to the expo was Php50 and the kids get in for free. Inside, there are a host of different booths, as well as a number of talks and activities lined-up through out the day. The expo ran from 21-23 April where mums and mums-to-be, along with their toddlers and families were treated to an exhibit that showcased different facets of comprehensive perinatal healthcare such as products, services, technology and new methods, all of which were designed to aid Filipina mothers and their babies.

Educational talks from PAP experts are just one of the highlights of the very first Mom And Baby Expo

Organized by the Perinatal Association of the Philippines (PAP), the expo featured not only booths of trusted mum and baby brands like Pigeon, Enfamama, Unilab, Messy Bessy, Safety 1st, and Tiny Buds {our personal fave}, but also a series of talks of medical experts belonging to the PAP which delved into a whole range of topics pertaining to maternal-fetal and newborn topics. Among the topics that drew huge crowds were tips on how to get pregnant; vaccines needed for expecting moms as well as their babies; preconception tests;  macro and micronutrient needs for moms; Sayuntis- exercise during pregnancy; and  skin care for mom and baby.

Perinatal Association Of The Philippines’ Mom & Baby Expo 2017

Pregnancy and being a mum for the first time are both exciting stages in a woman’s life but they can be the most trying and terrifying, too, especially if you have no idea of the challenges that lies prior and ahead of pregnancy. Back in the day, I was overly excited to welcome my little bundle of joy but I was also filled with apprehension as to whether I will be a good mum or if I will be able to care for him the way a mum should. The floods of worry is enough to get a good woman down and not having my Mama {as she has passed on two years before my pregnancy} around did not help. I relied mainly on maternal instincts, the dozen or so pregnant mums that I had the fortune to share the experience with, as well as the online parenting forum I frequent then for tips and trips concerning motherhood.

It is so much easier to be pregnant and be a mum these days given the many resources available online, not to mention the many trade fairs and expos dedicated to motherhood and parenting. In fact, another expo is coming this April ~ the very first Mom & Baby Expo!

PAP President Dra. Belen Velasco enthused that the objective of the expo is “simple yet powerful; to impart advices and traverse new ideas moms and expectant moms can use that will ultimately strengthen their maternal bond with their babies. This is very exciting because this something big, something we have envisioned to happen for the longest time. And now, finally, we are doing it.”

What sets this expo apart from its previous contemporaries is that this time it will be organized by the experts themselves, who are passionate and have decades of proven and justified experience in their fields of expertise, and know everything there is to know about perinatal care. Past PAP President Dr. Diosdado Mariano shares that “the Expo is an opportunity to analyze and seek solutions to existing issues pertaining too maternal-fetal and newborn areas in an engaging and fun way.”
