When did you first find out that you were going to be a mother? Was it when you realized that you’ve missed your period? Was it when you started feeling full even though you haven’t eaten a thing? Or was it when the smell of your husband’s cologne, which you once found so adorable, became downright unpleasant?
The joy and excitement of discovering that you have a life growing inside you is just the first step in your journey to motherhood. In the next few weeks, months, and years, you’ll encounter many other milestones, bringing you moments of happiness and sorrow, surprise and frustration, disappointment and fulfillment. Luckily, you can always count on the support, assistance, and encouragement of the mompreneurs, partners, experts, and your fellow moms of Mommy Mundo’s Expo Mom community.
The Motherhood Community
On its ninth year, Expo Mom remains faithful to its vision of being the source of parenting trends and information, the wellspring of modern mommy products and services, and the launch pad for exciting campaigns, inspiring advocacies, and groundbreaking ideas. It’s no wonder then that it is the longest running event of its kind, consistently bringing the biggest gathering of moms year after year.
By being conscious of the different stages of motherhood and supporting the needs of moms at every turn, Expo Mom remains fresh and relevant.
Expo Mom was first launched in 2008 with the vision of becoming the ultimate trade expo of mom and baby products in Manila. It proved to be more than a shopping event as it featured interactive exhibits and onstage activities which gave life to the essence of motherhood.
In 2009, it celebrated a mother’s multi-faceted life by staging Expo Mom 2009: A Day in the Life of a Mom. Visitors were not only treated to a series of enlightening talks and workshops, they also took home the Expo Mom Daily Planner Pad to put order to their hectic days.
In 2010, it recognized the growing mompreneur movement in the country by running with the theme, The Mompreneur Market. As word of the valuable knowledge and practical finds to be found in Expo Mom grew in the mom community, mothers from other parts of the country asked when they’ll get to experience this exhilarating event. So in 2011, Expo Mom went nationwide, taking the leap to Davao and Cebu after its stint in Manila.
Expo Mom then shifted gears as it attempted to explore the mommy mindset. In 2012, it showcased the best of modern motherhood as it paid tribute to the hands-on mom, tech mom, fit mom, Earth-loving mom, babywearing mom, breastfeeding mom, belly blessed mom, and mompreneur.
In 2013, Expo Mom recognized what everyone knew in their hearts to be true, Momtuition and in 2014, it affirmed the awesome things that moms do every single day with its theme, “You The Mom!”
Last year, Expo Mom gave birth to another groundbreaking intiative when it facilitated an online workshop that encouraged moms to formulate their mision in life. Expo Mom’s Mom Manifesto campaign was like a breath of fresh air for moms who were caught up in the busyness of their everyday lives. The initiative encouraged moms to live more meaningfully by living mindfully.
This year, Expo Mom celebrates every stage of mommyhood with The Motherhood Journey.
