Smart Parenting Magazine, the parenting authority for Filipino parents, recently held its annual baby shower last September 20, Sunday, at Discovery Suites Hotel in Ortigas.  I was one lucky Mommy Blogger who got the invite even though I’m not (yet) pregnant again. (praying for another healthy baby. ) ^_^

Fulfilling Smart Parenting’s goal to help Filipino moms to be the best parents that they can be, Smart Parenting Magazine together with sponsors Biogenic, Lactacyd, Elica, EQ Dry, and Nursy Baby Wipes treated expectant mothers to be an inspiring and informative afternoon.

The event enabled guests to partake in pre-natal yoga facilitated by Urban Ashram, a succulent workshop by Smarty Plants PH and other activities tailor-fit for pregnant women, while enjoying sumptuous healthy meals.

“The Smart Parenting Baby Shower is our way of indulging our loyal readers who are expecting parents,” says Lei Dimarucut-Sison, Managing Editor. “It has become a venue for more interactive and hands-on learning and fruitful discussions among mothers about the journey of pregnancy.”

One of the guest speakers was Aya Laraya, an investment advocate, who talked about being financially ready for growing family.
Another guest speaker, relationship expert, Aiza Tabayoyong of L.O.V. E. Institute, discussed the Languages of Love.

Providing Filipino moms and dads with excellent and credible information via print and online over 11 years, and with over one million unique users and two million visits monthly, Smart Parenting has become the most trusted local source of child-rearing information for Filipino parents with kids aged zero to eight years, in keeping  with the times and to allow more moms access to vital parenting information and relevant content 24/7, Smart Parenting will be solely web-based starting October 2015.

Smart Parenting September issue is available in newstands, bookstores, convinience stores, and supermarkets nationwide. A digital edition of Smart Parenting is also available for download through Apple newsstand, Buqo, Zinio and Magzter.

Thank you Smart Parenting for the invite. Me and my fellow mommy bloggers had fun! ^_^
