Pregnancy Awareness Month, co-Founded by Anna Getty and Alisa Donner, kicked off its 5th Anniversary at a fabulous event in Los Angeles where expectant Moms could hear from experts, get style makeovers, a little pampering, and see loads of options for how to care for their babies – and themselves.
Sunday, May 6th, 2012 was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon at the Skirball Cultrual Center, organized by MomsLA Contributor and event planner Jeannine Chanin-Penn of xoj9. Expectant Mom and singer Lisa Loeb sang and played the guitar while expectant parents walked around getting information about pregnancy.
Pregnancy Awareness Month aims to celebrate a vulnerable and magical time in a woman’s life, according to co-Founder Anna Getty, and so the event was filled with supportive and informative women (and men).
This being Los Angeles, there were of course celebrities in attendance – and even the bloggers got a Red Carpet photo!
MomsLA co-Founders Yvonne Condes and Sarah Auerswald had a booth at the event to promote the launch of our newsletter (sign up on the right had side of the page, por favor) and to help support the expectant Moms in attendance. We’re always available to share our advice on Motherhood. Just ask.
We also were interviewed by the lovely and talented Momz In The Mix for their great wrap-up video of the event, so check that out as well.
There are events happening all over the country, so check the Pregnancy Awareness website for events in your area.
Sarah Auerswald is a co-Founder of MomsLA, a Community of over 100 of the Top Mom Bloggers in Los Angeles and Orange County.
