What is Mommy Matters?
On August 3, 2019, the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority, on the 5th year of its flagship project MILK MATTERS, and in partnership with the Philippine General Hospital, held MOMMY MATTERS: A Conference Featuring Talks For Mothers, By Mothers.
The one-day momference, held at the Bayview Park Hotel Manila, was organized for the benefit of the renovation of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) breastfeeding room. Featuring several talks about pertinent issues that matter in modern-day motherhood such as nutrition, fitness, infertility, marriage, and schooling, the event aimed to increase awareness on relevant issues in parenting among mothers and healthcare providers.
The heavy rains that poured on this day brought with it excitement, new knowledge, and new friendships for participants, speakers, and organizers alike. Mommies left the conference with not only new knowledge, but with loads of goodies from our sponsors in hand!
