The First Ever Mom & Baby Expo (and Why It Really Is the First Ever!)

Yes, we've all seen so many mom & baby expos before.

But you've never seen anything like this one.

This is the first ever Mom & Baby Expo from no less than the Perinatal Association of the Philippines (PAP).

Who are they? They're the very same doctors who
  • are managing/will manage your prenatal care, 
  • will be delivering your baby, and 
  • will be managing your care again until you and your baby go home.
So this expo is bound to be the most health-oriented and medically sound mom & baby expo we've ever seen.

When, Where, What

It's going to be at the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 2&3, from April 21 (Friday, 2–10 PM) to April 23 (Sunday, 10 AM–10 PM).

The entrance fee is P50 per head.

There will be raffle draws and partner promotions every 2 to 2.5 hours. (Of course they have industry partners. If they didn't, we wouldn't have freebies!).

On Saturday, at 4:00 PM, they'll be holding children's games, so that's probably the best time for us non-pregnant moms with kids and toddlers to be there.

Of course, there will be stalls filled with pretty things to buy (or, in my case, gawk over) and yummy things to eat.

But the main attraction would be the doctors' lectures. Here's the schedule of talks and speakers:
