“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” 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 many 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 of 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.”
Gladly that PAP organized this kind of expo, the first ever mom and baby combined expo. Not just for the welfare of baby but for mommy as well. Knowing that in reality, many cases of early pregnancy is on the teenage years. This will be a sort of awareness to tap those who are not yet ready to have a baby, for them to properly take care their babies and to have a healthy life between mommy and the baby.
I will definitely let other mommies and my mommy friends know this invitation. I will encourage them to attend this expo to help them learn more about mommy and baby things. Since I have kids and one of them whom I still consider as my baby, we will be attending this event. It will be a bonding moment for us.
The Mom and Baby Expo 2017 will be held on April 21-23 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 2 and 3. 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).
