2013 Pregancy Awareness Month Event in Santa Monica
I have just perused through two bags of baby/pregnancy brochures, coupons and items which I've gathered from the Pregnancy Awareness Event I attended last Sunday. This years' event was held in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica where a lot of people lined up for to get a free gift bag that's limited to the first 200 attendees.
Here's the contents of the gift bag
Below is what I got from the booths.
It's a family event so people not only came with their beautiful pregnant self but also with their kids and supportive husbands. I actually saw so many brands of strollers from families who attended.
I decided to take my cousin who is 10 weeks away from welcoming her beautiful daughter to check out baby products and gears.
We went from booth to booth checking out items, from baby food to baby bottles and more.
There were multiple speakers that day discussing pre & post nutrition for moms and baby; baby sleep solutions; and celebrity dads talking about dad's role and I even got to see Kevin Frazier of Insider hosting one of them... He looks exactly the same in person and on TV.
There was also a kids activity area sponsored by Books and Cookies, and another room for massages. Plus a lounge area for nursing moms sponsored by Medela.
I also saw model McKey Sullivan(in purple), America's Next Top Model Season 11 winner attending the event still looking radiant with her belly bump.
It was all in all a great event under a perfect weather. We finish it off with mediterranean food from one of the 2 food trucks that were there and headed home for some preggy nap.
