Being a mom for the first time is fearful yet exciting. It is the time wherein a woman is going to handle greater responsibilities. To get ready and be prepared for the arrival of my little angel is one of the task that I’m doing right now. It’s such a good thing that I was invited by Ms. Grace Enriquez, Media Relations Manager of Summit Media, to attend the Smart parenting Baby Shower Event that was held at Drake and Columbus Function Room, Discovery Suites Ortigas last April 03, 2016.
As you all may know, Smart Parenting is the largest parenting news and lifestyle brand in the country, and they just held their annual baby shower in which expectant moms celebrates the joy and thrills of being a mother. The event includes speakers who will help and guide us with our pregnancy journey, fun activities, raffle and prizes.
Through Smart Parenting’s partnership with Downy Baby Gentle, mothers were given first-hand information about the importance of choosing baby-friendly products that are tested by dermatologists and certified safe for baby’s sensitive skin. An expert from the Philippines Pediatric Society, Dr. Jaime Isip-Cumpas, shared the significance of gentle softness on baby’s skin.
Series of talk were also conducted by Sharon Agoncillo-Galang, an Independent Certified Instructor of the Baby Signs Program. She taught us how to do sign languages for our baby. Another talk tackled breastfeeding, which was discussed by Zenaida Feliciano, an executive turned Breastfeeding Coach who helped set-up the first Prenatal Lactation Clinic in the Philippines at the Asian Hospital.
Betty San Luis was also there to shed some light on the different options of giving birth with your birth of choice: Natural, Medicated, C-Section, or Water Birth. Betty is the main Childbirth Mentor of Birthing is a Blessing; certified Doula with Childhood International.
Writer, stylist, and travel blogger, Coni Tejada, conducted a fun activity with Scribble Onesies, while other guests learned about and experienced Pre-natal Yoga with Urban Ashram.
Okay, so that is me on the very right side. The only picture including me haha. I wasn’t able to bring my husband in the venue to take pictures of me.
One of the guest speakers was TV host-author and first time mother, Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, who describes herself as a hands-on mother despite her busy schedule. Bianca shared her experiences as a first time mom to her 5-month daughter Lucia Martine.
