Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey in Cagayan de Oro

Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey in Cagayan de Oro

As the ultimate mommy event of the season takes a second trip to Mindanao, expect to be inspired by the different faces of mommyhood on October 15, 2016 at Centrio Mall, from 10AM to 9PM. Whether you’re an expectant mom, a new mom, or a mom of three or four, you’re going to find something to love at Expo Mom Cagayan de Oro.


Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey features a fun and fulfilling all-day program. In the morning The Modern Nanays of Mindanao, a community of moms who promote breastfeeding, babywearing, and cloth diapering, lead the celebration of motherhood with a Mamba session—a Zumba class made especially for moms with slings! Dr. Raissa Paje Bayawa, founder of Happy Heart Kids Yoga, takes the stage next to enlighten moms about the benefits of prenatal yoga and to share some helpful moves as well.

Two sessions delve deep into the amazing journey that all moms share. The first one focuses on pregnancy and breastfeeding with Dr. Jess Sareno, neonatologist, and Nadine Casino, founder of Modern Nanays of Mindanao. The second touches on baby care with discussions on the right way to wear baby and age-appropriate toys to help with a child’s development.

The other exciting activities scheduled include a bento-making session specifically devoted to picky eaters by the pioneering Bento Mommas, who have actually been with us all over the country this year! You can sign up to participate at for Php900, inclusive of basic bento tool kit, bento box and food ingredients for the workshop plus freebies from sponsors, all of which you can take home afterward.

A makeup on the go demonstration for busy mothers by the Kikay Mommy follows in the afternoon, and a craft workshop with a homegrown moms and kids crafts group. In between, many prizes will be given away care of our generous exhibitors and sponsors Caltrate, and Belo Baby.

Topping the motherhood celebration is a fashion show devoted to babywearing, showing one and all that it is possible to look positively trendy with a baby in tow.

A year from its tenth anniversary, Expo Mom continues to be a source of information and inspiration among modern parents and a wellspring of modern products and services for the whole family.

Expo Mom 2016: The Motherhood Journey is co-presented by Caltrate Plus, and Belo Baby with Centrio Mall and Ayala Malls as its venue partner. Creative Juice Communications is its logistics partner. Entrance to Expo Mom is free.

Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey Goes to Cebu and Negros

The motherhood journey is different for every mom. Some find taking care of their children an easy task. They are perhaps blessed with the ability to adapt quickly to different types of situations. Others need a little more time to get used to the rhythms of motherhood, and make sure to arm themselves with advice from family and information from books and the internet.

But whether you’re a mama in Manila, a nanay in Cebu, or an iloy in Negros, you are one in loving your children unconditionally and wishing for them only the best. More so, you may find solace, support, and inspiration from the mompreneurs, partners, experts, and your fellow moms of Mommy Mundo’s Expo Mom community.


On its ninth year, Expo Mom shines the spotlight on the joys and challenges of every stage of mommyhood with The Motherhood Journey. By bringing it to different destinations, from Manila, Cebu, and Negros to Alabang, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro, Expo Mom hopes to reach out to more mothers across the country.

At Expo Mom, moms will be delighted to discover practical solutions as well as relevant propositions to their most pressing problems and issues. Aside from bringing in expert resource persons to facilitate workshops and group discussions, Expo Mom will also be showcasing the latest mom-, baby-, and child-oriented products in the market.

Flying in from Manila to Cebu are Michele S. Alignay, MA, Registered Family Psychologist, who will lead a discussion on the joys and challenges of the motherhood journey, and the moms behind the highly popular group, Bento Mommas, who will teach moms how to prepare delicious bento meals for their children. Cebu’s all-day program also includes a fitness activity and cooking demonstration sponsored by Caltrate Plus, a finance management workshop by Sun Life, a product showcase by Downy Babt Gentle, and a skin care talk by Belo Baby. The Negros leg will feature the same program

The lineup of exhibitors in Cebu include ClearAScar, Cycles and Cradle, Sanicare, Babyzone, Modern Mama, Baby Mum Mum, Vpharma, Boba Philippines, Halo Sleepsack, and The Nest.
