Delivery and Newborn Care Workshop + Giveaway

If I were a pregnant mom, I would be so excited to attend workshops that could help me prepare the coming of my baby especially if it was my first. And that is exactly how I was before. But even though it would be for my second pregnancy, I might be attending these all over again hoping to learn few more things, brush up my knowledge, listen to stories of other moms and meet new friends.

Parents nowadays are so lucky to have easy access to various kinds of parenting workshops. And we must thank Manila Workshops and Medela Moms on this for passionately and continuously serving and catering to our needs.

Presenting to you the third installment of Manila Workshops' First Time Parents (FTP) Series of workshops entitled Delivery and Newborn Care. This event will take place on February 22, 2014 (Saturday) from 1pm to 5pm, to be held at Medela House.

Topics to be discussed:
1. Baby Milestones
2. Newborn Baby Care
3. All About Breastfeeding
4. Safe Sleep

I highly encourage pregnant mommies that they be accompanied by their husbands especially on this topic about breastfeeding because they will be the one to support and back you up when the time comes that you badly need encouragement and moral support.
