So glad that in this day and age being informed and knowing the latest news about how to take care of your family is easily available. Luckily for the modern moms like me there are bazaars such as Expo Mom 2012, which offers us everything we need from products to services all for the mommies as well as for daddies who are eager to be updated with the latest trends & ways in taking care of their families.
Entrance fee is 25 php and 100% of which goes to Mommy Mundo’s Momshare outreach projects.
The Best of Modern Motherhood
Are you a Babywearing Mom, who holds her child close to her heart in the hopes of raising a secure and confident individual? Maybe you’re a Tech Mom, who uses all these cool gadgets to manage her daily schedule and stay connected with everyone else’s? Or perhaps you’re a Mompreneur, who juggles the many demands of building a business and raising her children?
Expo Mom 2012 : The Best of Modern Motherhood, happening on May 5 and 6 Saturday and Sunday at the Rockwell Tent,celebrates the many faces of modern motherhood—Fit Mom, Tech Mom, Babywearing Mom, Belly Blessed Mom, Breastfeeding Mom, Earth Loving Mom, and Mompreneur—by putting the spotlight on the latest products and services designed to provide solutions to their many concerns. Expo Mom 2012 is the only lifestyle event of its kind created especially for mothers.
“Being a mom today is so different from what it was before. For starters, we have access to all this information. We now know that caring for our children starts from Day 1 of our pregnancy. We now know that the best way to take care of our family is to take care of ourselves first. We also know that technology, while allowing us to make full use of our time, is a double-edged sword as it has exposed our children to materials that they may not yet be ready to see,” observes Janice Villanueva-Crisostomo, founder of Mommy Mundo, a dynamic organization devoted to empowering and engaging mothers through unique concept events and publications. Mommy Mundo has been organizing Expo Mom since 2008.
She adds, “These are some of the issues that the modern mom faces every day. Expo Mom hopes to answer some of these concerns by showcasing the latest tools that can help us save time and make tasks easier, so that we can devote more of our efforts into becoming better moms.”
Complementing the trademark mom bazaar of products and services is a barrage of interactive sessions addressing the concerns of the various modern mom personas. There will be talks on green living, parenting with technology, mompreneur tips and babywearing. There will also be interesting demos like a fun Zumba demo, quick cooking by Samsung Digital appliances, and so much more. Mommy Matters will also be launching its newest campaign, celebrating the beauty of real moms.

We celebrate the BEST of MODERN MOTHERHOOD at Expo Mom 2012!
What is modern motherhood? Or more interestingly, what is a modern mom? What defines her? What does she value? What sets her apart from mothers that came before her?
Modern moms are active, empowered parents, We’ve come up with a list of modern mom personas as we try to encapsulate in simplified terms what a modern mom is. Do you see yourself in any of these modern mom personas?
Fit Mom wants to be in her best shape, so she can take care of her family in the best possible way.
The Tech Mom uses technology to fulfill her multiple roles with the least time and effort.
The Belly Blessed Mom knows that nurturing her child starts from Day One of her pregnancy.
The Mompreneur makes full use of her passion and talents to run a business while managing a household.
The Breastfeeding Mom knows that breastmilk is her own “superpower” and is committed to nursing despite its many challenges.
The Earth Loving Mom believes in living simply, opting for natural, toxic-free products, in the hopes of lessening her family’s carbon footprint.
The hands-on mom wants to be intimately involved in every facet of her child’s life. She is an active, ever-present parent.
So what type of modern mom are you? Actually there’s probably a bit of each modern mom persona in each of us, and no matter what it’s just great (and fun!) to know what type we are and realize that in the end, we are all just trying to be the best moms we can possibly be for our kids!
I am a belly blessed mom! Although I’m also a hands on mom and tech mom, but the best title that suits me now is being a belly blessed mom! I’m quite excited to visit Expo Mom 2012 mainly because I’m pregnant, I want to check out on the products made by momprenuers and learn a thing or two from the talk & activities.
