Yesterday, hubby and I attended a whole-day workshop on What to Know Before Giving Birth. We were supposed to register as paying attendees, but then, some few days into the workshop date, Mommy Ginger of Manila Workshops, posted a contest in her Facebook account, where they choose 3 lucky couples after posting the answers. As I badly wanted to cross this out from my Parental and Baby Prep list, I joined the contest. Three days later, Mommy Ginger emailed me to inform me that I won two free seats in the workshop! 🙂
It was a whole day affair at the Medela House with great and very hands-on mommies who taught me and hubby so much from What to Expect During OB Check-Ups, Pain Management, Pregnancy Nutrition, and What to Know Before Hiring a Yaya.
I especially loved the Birthing Plan which Dra. Diana Sarmiento layed-out for us. They also had a speaker from StemCord Philippines, which hubby and I had decided to avail.
This is the first of four series and I am glad that these were all scheduled before my estimated date of delivery.
I look forward to Delivery and New Born Care, the second series. This will be held on June 29, 2013 from 9AM to 5PM at the Medela House. So, first time parents out there (and mommies who would want to know more about Baby Care), you may want to check this out 🙂 I believe that learning ahead and educating ourselves as parents will definitely pave way for better parenting skills and parent-child relationships.
Thank you Manila Workshops, Medela Moms, Inc., and The Learning Basket for this wonderful opportunity of learning! 🙂
