Moms-to-be are luckier nowadays because of workshops and seminars they can attend to be better prepared when they meet their bundle of joy. Of course, only us moms will know our babies more than anybody else but it will also be helpful to have guidance and support from the experts.
Velvet Escario-Roxas, a 2014 finalist for Bayaning Pilipino and a Pinay Doula, will be conducting a hands-on seminar “The Fourth Trimester: From Me to We” as part of the Gentle Birth, Gentle Parenting movement. No more pamahiin, just gentle mothering for your newborn.
This seminar will help you mommies (and daddies, too!) to be more confident to face, carry and care for your newborn baby. Gusto ko na nga mag baby #2! Lol!
