I have to admit it has only been recently that I’ve started attending events that focused on featuring products and activities for the family. When I was pregnant with Gabbie, I barely went out and was stuck at home. When Gabbie was a year old there were bazaars and other events that are appropriate for her but still we seldom went because well, we find that it’s not necessary to go. But now that I’m a mum of two, I find events for families, for mums and even for women in general more interesting. A friend of mine even noticed that I have been going to more events lately. Weird as it may seem but I’m more excited to be part of a mom community this time around maybe because I’m more confident and more knowledgable as to when I was a mum the first time.
So when I learned about Mommy Mundo’s event called Moms On The Floor, I signed up and freed one Saturday afternoon to attend.
Mommy Mundo, the country’s go-to resource for active, modern moms is hosted the third MOMS ON THE FLOOR. Moms on the Floor is a one-day floor-based learning and bonding event for the whole family. The event offered prenatal yin yoga by Dona Esteban, labor and breathing exercises by Rome Kanapi for pregnant moms; infant massage by Rome Kanapi, mom and baby exercises by Gymboree for moms with infants and YogaKids by Michelle Aventajado and Zumba fun by Slimmers World for moms with kids 1 to 6 years old.
During the event, Mommy Mundo also released a new page in it’s website called Best Shot at Life.
For many years now, Mommy Mundo has been advocating child vaccination. Since 2010 they have partnered with GlaxoSmithKline in promoting free vaccination programs. To deepen that commitment, Mommy Mundo has designated a page in their website for this cause.
The page aptly entitled Best Shot at Life offers information on how parents can ensure the wellness of their kids through vaccination and healthy living. It also has disease prevention tools such as a guide on diseases, an immunization schedule calculator and a clinic finder. In addition, you can also ask “Tita Doc” for vaccination-related questions.
“With Mommy Mundo, as you know, we have many advocacies we are passionate about- healthy pregnancy, breastfeeding, mompreneurship, active parenting- and part of our active parenting advocacy is our passion to promote vaccination awareness to our community of moms and moms to be. We are so thankful to be supported by GSK in our advocacies and it was such a blessing for this project to have gotten support from GSK- our vaccination portal that will be the source of information for the general public on news on vaccination, diseases information.”-Janice Crisostomo-Villanueva, the founder of Mommy Mundo

It was an afternoon filled with fun activities divided into three parts. Part one was for the pregnant women, part two for infants and part three is for toddlers and moms. Gabbie, Juro and I attended parts two and three. Here’s a look at what happened that fun-filled Saturday.
So many mums & dads attended together with their lil’ ones, all game to have fun.
