Whether you're an expecting mom whose list of pregnancy questions grows daily with your bump, or you're a new mama who's always in search of the best products and services, Well Rounded NY’s 2nd annual Pregnancy Prep Talk was the place to be as experts guided guests through poignant topics of each trimester.
This year, we partnered up with our lovely friends at Coco-Mat for an informative and fun-filled evening of mingling, noteworthy tips, mocktails and massages. Guests instantly felt relaxed by Coco-Mat’s open, beautiful space, which felt calm and inviting. Their luxurious mattresses, made from all natural materials, made for comfy spots forpregnant mamas to take a seat and rest their feet.
During the intimate gathering, maternity lifestyle maven & doula Latham Thomas offered some tips from her best selling book "Mama Glow: A Hip Guide to a Fabulous and Abundant Pregnancy” and conveyed the importance of moms making time for themselves in order to care and nurture others.
Author, acupuncturist and herbalist Aimee Raupp gave her best beauty and sleep tips, reminding us to go non-toxic with the products in our makeup bag because of the effects it could have on the baby. The pregnancy expert (who’s pregnant--at 40!--with her first babe) also gave expecting moms pointers on how to relax and what positions to try for a good night's rest.
In addition to a roundup of knowledgeable speakers, guests in attendance were able to learn about the latest brands out there to make their lives easier while pregnant and as new parents, with sponsors including The Serhant Team, The Bunky Bag, Weleda, Shari's Little Leaners, LeSportsac, Sun & Sea and Birthday Presence. They sipped pregnancy friendly 9 Months sparkling wine, delicious organic juices from Bundle Organics and refreshing Balance Water, and indulged in lite bites from Pi Bakerie and addictive cookies from FattyCakesNY.
The lovely mamas also snapped some fun photos with Blinkbuggy while adorning beautiful floral crowns from Peartree Flowers and indulged in relaxing massages. One lucky guest left with a New Mom Survival gift-basket from Diapers.com (valued at $250) and everyone took home a gift bag filled with goodies from Greenpoint brands and other great sponsors.
We are so very thankful for our readers and everyone who supported us and stopped by. Hope to see you at our next event!
