To promote the good health and well-being of mothers and their unborn child through safe pregnancy and delivery, the SM Cares Program on Women and Breastfeeding Mothers, hosted an event titled “Mama’s Lullaby, A Musical Event for Expecting Mothers”. This is in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal on good health and well-being.
Held at the Event Center in SM Megamall, the event featured discussions with medical experts wherein attendees picked up useful tips on a safe and healthy pregnancy.
“Looking after yourself during pregnancy is very important, which is why we at SM Cares remain committed to providing awareness to all women and future mothers about proper ways on how to care for both you and your baby,” said Bernadette Velasco, SM Cares Program Director for Women and Breastfeeding Mothers.
Guest speaker Dr. Bianca Katrina Villanueva of the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society, the premier organization of Obstetrician-Gynecologists, discussed the stages of pregnancy and shared tips for better intellectual and emotional development of the baby. Meanwhile, Medical Nutrition Physician Dr. Mariana Sioson, talked about breastfeeding and food that will boost nutrition for both mother and baby.
The highlight of the event was a symphony performance of String Fusion, which serenaded the mommies and their babies, as it is believed that music can have a potential positive impact on the baby’s mental and emotional development.
