With just over a week away, moms and moms-to-be are all geared up for the first ever Mom and Baby Expo 2017 happening this April. Organized by the Perinatal Association of the Philippines (PAP), 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 babies.
One of the highlights of the Mom and Baby Expo 2017 will be a series of talks from perinatal experts pertaining to maternal-fetal and newborn topics, including tips on how to get pregnant; vaccines needed for expecting moms as well as their babies; exercise and proper nutrition for a healthy pregnancy; and pre-conception tests and Breastfeeding Pearls Exercise. Other topics include skin care protection for women who are conceiving, the importance of prenatals, and ways to safeguard against diseases like vaginal infection, UTI and STDs.
PAP President Dr. Belen Velasco notes, “Our objective 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”.
For his part, former PAP President Dr. Diosdado Mariano says “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.” It will also showcase pocket workshops, fun and informative activities, selling booths, food stalls, and raffle prizes.
The Mom and Baby Expo 2017 will be held on April 21-23 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 2 and 3. Entrance fee is at P50.
The three-day event is made possible by the PAP, in partnership with its trusted affiliates: the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecology Society (POGS), Philippine Pediatrics Society (PPS), Philippine Society of Newborn Medicine (PSNbM), Mother and Child Nurses Association of the Philippines (MCNAP), and the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines (IMAP).
