Celebrating Your New Bundle of Joy: The Smart Parenting Baby Shower

After the success of the two previous legs of Smart Parenting Baby Shower 2016, SmartParenting.com.ph, the most credible parenting online resource backed by experts and a community of moms and dads, in partnership with EQ Dry, concludes this year’s baby shower events with a third installment, an intimate whole day gathering of expectant mommies with informational talks for moms-to-be as they wait for their new bundle of joy. It was a great experience for me since I already have ideas about motherhood.

The experts included Marguax Alampay, who talked about beauty and fashion for pregnant mommies. A former fashion editor at Candy Magazine, Margaux has been a fashion stylist for seven years after studying fashion in New York and Milan and currently styles for various celebrities, print ads, and fashions shows.

Another expert was Sharon Galang, independent certified instructor (ICI) for baby sign language, who helped parents discover the joy of communicating with their babies before they can talk.

And finally, Chiqui Brosas, an experienced childbirth educator and doula since the 1990’s and a
breastfeeding advocate since 1997, shared ways on how you can face the pain and be confident on delivery day. She provided relaxation techniques and exercises through a Lamaze session. Chiqui is known as the guro when it comes to natural childbirth because of her calmness and ability to control during labor and until birth.

Capping off the series of talks is a fun crafting workshop that definitely gave mommies ideas on how to personalize bibs for their babies.

Here are some tips I learned:

  • For fashion, find inspiration but don't compare yourself to others.
  • Love your curves and flaunt them, don't cover the bump. Be proud!
  • Follow your personal style
  • Choose pieces that you can still wear even you're not pregnant or until your 9th month.
  • Go for clean sleak lines
  • Shop for clothing that could fit your growing belly. It must be always breathable and comfy.
  • Moisturize your belly
  • Check your doctor whether products and treatments are suitable for you.
  • Make time for grooming and pampering too
  • Find time to recover after giving birth and don't push yourself in a hurry to get back into shape. 
  • Stay healthy and don't pressure the body
