Expo Mom is organized by Mommy Mundo and the Philippine Association for Childbirth Education.
These 2 organizations, founded by two mommy friends, Janice Crisostomo Villanueva and Rome Kanapi, have been working together since 2003 to organize events to reach out to moms and moms-to-be.
“After attending Lamaze classes with Juan and delivering Kristina in 1979, I went into a career shift. From Ateneo- Office for Social Concern & Involvement (OSCI) to Mothering. It was one of the best moves of my life.
I trained to be a certified childbirth educator with the Philippine Association for Childbirth Education (PACE). And I have been teaching Preparation for Childbirth Class / Lamaze class since 1981. By September 2000, I attended a trainors training workshop on infant massage from the Philippine Pediatric Society & Johnson & Johnson Asean Consumer Group and started infant massage classes.”

“With my first son Coby came an avalanche of ideas and inspiration for new parenting-related projects and businesses that I wanted to pursue.
First I set up a clothing brand with my cousin called Mommy Matters, a line of breastfeeding apparel which is now sold in Rustans, Havin’ a Baby, Landmark, through our Fit-at-home delivery service, and abroad. (We now also distribute innovative products for moms such as Sensible Lines Milk Trays, Trumpettes socks, Momease Diaper Bag Converters and the Belly Belt.
Then I published Mommy Pages, a directory of products and services for moms and kids distributed for free in ob and pedia clinics, retail shops, preschools, and through childbirth classes and other events.
Eventually I started organizing events to complement our advocacy for breastfeeding, healthy pregnancy and active parenting through my events company Creative Juice, which I now run together with my husband Gary.”
Last year, the ultimate go-to portal for moms was launched in MOMMY MUNDO. This is now the home of well thought out initiatives to service every moms’ needs and wants. Through Mommy Mundo we strive to continue on with our advocacy: to provide Filipino moms and moms-to-be with unique experiences, vital information and relevant activities that would help enhance their motherhood and parenting experience.
