Our First Ever Mommy Mundo World: A Huge Success!
Mommy Mundo World: The Ultimate Mom Resource Destination
As the first multi-platform resource for moms in the Philippines, Mommy Mundo put out all the stops as we launched our new major offering to our mommy community last February 16-17, at The Fifth, Rockwell R5, Powerplant Mall.
Way beyond being just a bazaar, Mommy Mundo World was the place to be for expectant parents and young moms and dads looking for the right information and support to guide them through intentional parenthood.
With over 100 vendors, parenting support and services, the weekend was jam-packed with the best mom and baby finds and family essentials, relevant talks and parent-focused enterprises, especially homegrown mompreneurships that Mommy Mundo World made sure to shine the light on.
