I arrived as early as 2PM which I thought was the start of the event, but then it's fine with me as I was able to take some photos of the store with less people in it.

Looking from the outside you'll never imagine

Ms. Rain Buensuceso from New Beginnings and Frisomum (sponsor)
New Beginnings is a support group for pregnant moms and already-mothers as well. This progressive group aims to ease what moms-to-be undergo during pregnancy. They give advises and tips as well as provide useful information on how-to-be and what-to-do before and during pregnancy. They also offer this new milk for pregnant and lactating mothers called Frisomum.
The attendees of the event were able to have a taste of this milk that can only be purchased on-line. I love how Frisomum tasted, it's like your drinking a melted vanilla ice cream that is not too sweet, I liked it but then I'm not in the stage to take it as I'm not pregnant. (",)
Frisomum is the first pregnant and lactating milk that contains an advance formula with both Prebiotics and Probiotics that aids in a healthy digestive system.
Ms. Rain gave me a 900mg Frisomum can, I'll give this
to my cousin, Joan, who just gave birth and is now a breastfeeding mom.
Dra. Mae Skyi-Young from the Makati Medical Center
OB-Gyne doctor Mae Skyi-Young discussed the stages and important information on Prenatal and Postnatal care. It was so informative that almost everybody wanted to ask questions after her presentation. It was a very clear and concise discussion and all questions were answered in a very understandable non-medical terms. She supports cord blood banking.
Ms. Mariel Bartolome sharing her pregnancy experience
and how Mothercare can help expectant moms with their needs.
In between presentations, there were some raffle prizes from Mothercare and Palmer's that made the crowd much more alive.
Raffle Prizes from Mothercare
Philips Avent giveaway includes Avent breast pads,
Avent nipple cream, Avent cup and Germ killer disinfectant
1st batch of winners c/o Mothercare Philippines
2nd Batch of winners c/o Mothercare and Palmer's Philippines
Most of the raffle winners were pregnant, they really are the lucky ones (",) But I am hoping next time I would win some too.
The last speaker was from Stemcord Philippines, Ms. Phoebe Te. She discussed the importance and procedure of cord blood banking and how investing in this system would benefit your children big time.

Frisomum Cupcake. Indeed a super yummy treat.
I loved it. Hope I could eat one again soon.
I get to take home both Korean and Japanese foodie because I have no more time to eat at the venue. My husband and I enjoyed the delicious and healthy meals from The Sexy Chef. It was a successful and a great event that would make Moms and Moms-to-be craving for more.
A full packed lively audience, of course mostly pregnant women and their supportive husbands seem to enjoy the event. I will be more likely to attend again any upcoming Baby & me Club, Mothercare events.
