Kickstarting the Love Month
Last February 2, Saturday at the 2L Atrium of The Podium, we held back to back community events for our mompreneurs and parents-to-be plus a weekend pop-up market of curated mom and baby finds.
Start Within: A Mompreneur Workshop
For our Start Within Mompreneur Workshop, we kicked off with our very own Mommy Mundo CEO and founder, Janice Crisostomo Villanueva, who talked about the importance of starting within and changing your mindset to reach the goals you set for yourself.
She shared, “Keep growing with your minds and practice mindfulness in your very own ways to keep yourself afloat and passionate about what you want to do. Don’t hamper your growth. It’s okay to be uncomfortable but learn how to embrace YOU.”
We also had People Acuity and Strengths Coach Kit Malvar Llamas who reassured moms and dads that it’s okay to be different because our uniqueness is what makes us strong and resilient.
She shared, “Each of us is a unique piece in the puzzle, each of us have the capacity to bring our own unique strengths to create interdependence in every situation.”
Pregnant Pause 22
In the afternoon, we had our much-awaited Pregnant Pause 22 with pioneering childbirth educator and Lamaze expert, Rome Kanapi, who educated our startup parents on tips and techniques they could call up during labor and all the way to childbirth.
One of the best tips we got was how to know when you are in labor.
She shared, “Be mindful of contractions that are closer in frequency and duration, persistent abdominal and lower back pain, water breaks, or when there is brownish or reddish discharge. When you feel any of these symptoms, go to the nearest hospital or where you chose to deliver.”
Baby Dove Care Segment
For our Baby Dove Care segment, we had hardworking and inspirational moms to share their genuine stories with us. Huge thanks to mamas Aliza Apostol @mustlovemom, Bianca Santiago Reinoso @biancassantiago, Vanessa Bernabe @mom.atlast and Marie Field Faith @mariefieldfaith for their generous and heartwarming sharing!
Pop-Up Market Weekend
Our weekend pop-up market had great mom and baby finds with awesome deals and discounts thanks to our vendor partners and exhibitors.
We would also like to thank our partners PLDT, Baby Dove, Cycles and Cradle and our partner venue, The Podium.
