The First Support Group for Moms with Multiples in the Philippines

For several years now, MedelaMoms has remained true to its commitment of providing moms with trusted brands of breastfeeding products and supporting them in their breastfeeding journey.  Through the years, they have organized various learning events advocating the importance of breastfeeding.   They also provide breastfeeding counselling and help coordinate breast milk donations.

Knowing how breastfeeding can be doubly challenging for moms with multiples, MedelaMoms Maricel Cua and Beng Feliciano have formed the first ever support group for moms with multiples in the Philippines.  “Seeing Doubles” Multiples Support Group will be launched at the Medela House at 9a.m. on February 8, Saturday.

All couples expecting multiples are invited to attend the launch and meet other parents of multiples who will share their own personal experiences carrying, giving birth to, breastfeeding, and raising multiples.  I myself carried twins in my first pregnancy which was exciting and terrifying at the same time.  During that time, there was no one I could personally talk to who has gone through the same experience and I had to make do with reading books to cope with my anxieties.  So to those who are expecting multiples now,  you are soooo blessed to have a support group to go to!  Now don’t miss this chance to be able to ask questions and be inspired by other moms who have been through the same “doubly challenging” pregnancy.  MedelaMom Beng, a mother of twins, will be sharing her experience raising twins. Celebrity Moms Amanda Jacob and Marilen Faustino-Montenegro will be sharing their own breastfeeding experiences too.

Parents attending the launch can also look forward to a fashion show by SweetPea, a cocktail/formal nursing wear company.  Children in the fashion show will be wearing shoes from Walnut Melbourne PH.   Project Mom, a book written by Amanda Jacob and Bianca Araneta-Elizalde, will also be on sale during the event.  Do get one and have it personally signed by Amada herself.

The event is free of charge but you are required to pre-register by texting or calling MedelaMoms at 0917-8110821 or by sending an email to [email protected]. Sign up now to experience the first support group for mommies of multiples in the country! Giveaways, special promos, a candy buffet, and other treats are in store for participating mommies.
