Hubby and I had a blast at the Pregnancy Awareness Month (PAM) kick-off event held at Tree People in Beverly Hills on May 2, 2010. Many thanks to Anna Getty and Alisa Donner, co-founders of PAM, for hosting such an informative event!
"PAM is aimed to empower pregnant women and new parents with information, “how to” ideas and inspiration to incorporate PAM’s four key initiatives – education, exercise, nutrition & wellness and nurture – into their life routines and to show how easy it can be to make healthy changes in their lives, for themselves, and their children."
We gained a lot of insights from visiting each vendor's booths and listening to the panel discussion, which included Anna Getty, Ricki Lake, Ricki's doula, and Joely Fisher. The panel discussion included topics from giving birth in a hospital, birthing center, or right at your own home. To name a few, we were able to gain information from EcoMom, Hot Mom's Club, ERGObaby, Aden + Anais, Moby Wrap, Born Free, Belly Buds, gDiapers and many more. Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay for the entire event. I was so bummed that we had to miss Scott Stapp's (from Creed) performance. They are one of my all-time favorite bands. Also, Trista Sutter and Jessica Denay were there to sign their book The Hot Mom to Be Handbook. But, we were both happy campers to leave the event with some awesome raffle prizes and a PAM gift bag!
Thank you sponsors for the wonderful goodies in the PAM gift bag!!!
