So I recently received an invitation to attend an event for first-time moms hosted during the Baby Banda Fair 2019 at the Sarit Center.

Even though I’m not a first-time mom myself, I often like attending mom-related events because there, I get lots of helpful information which I come back here and share with you – because we’re all in this learning journey together. You can never really say you know everything about motherhood, can you?

The moderator, Sharon Mundia

The event was hosted by Bio Oil Kenya and moderated by Sharon Mundia. The panelists who shared their professional expertise included Wambui Wanjau who is a doula, Ciru Ciera of Nurturing Mums, Kitt Nyang’aya who is an infant and child sleep coach, and Hamida Ahmed, a Counseling Psychologist.

Lots of issues were discussed during the event, ranging from pregnancy, breastfeeding, returning to work after maternity leave, involving men before, during and after pregnancy, social media and children, sleep training, pre-natal and post-natal depression, among others.

The moderator shared quite a lot from her own motherhood experiences as she guided the discussions, which was a good thing as it inspired the audience to share their own stories too. The panelists did the same as well – infusing their own personal motherhood experiences with their professional expertise.

See some of those discussions in the videos below.

So those are the conversations that I was able to capture. I hope you have found the information in the videos helpful.

In my opinion, the event was not necessarily for first-time moms only, but also second, third, fourth, fifth… time moms. I too benefited from the information shared by the panelists and fellow moms in the audience. It was basically an event for all moms.

Below are some of the moms who asked questions or shared their motherhood experiences during the event.

I don’t know if the organizers will have a similar event in the future but in case they do and they share the information with me, I’ll keep you updated.

Thanks for reading 🙂
