Learn from and chat with industry experts, providers and trendsetters
Whether you’re trying, expecting, or postpartum, new mums and mums-to-be obviously want to know the best, most up-to-date advice and information on all things pregnancy and baby, but with so much conflicting advice, intergenerational experience and best-intentioned suggestions offered to us, it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why events like Healthy Matters’ Hong Kong Maternity & Baby Event are so important to new and expecting parents. If you’re not already familiar, Healthy Matters is Hong Kong’s leading source of health information for women and families and organises the most informative and experience-focused events in town. This will be the fourth edition of HK’s most empowering event on pregnancy and babies.
This year you can learn from over 20 reputable doctors and experts who will discuss topics such as how to prepare for a natural birth or C-section, having a baby after 35, postpartum mental wellbeing and everything you need to know about your baby’s health in their first year. There will be “How to Read to Your Baby” workshops hosted by charity partner, Bring Me A Book, fun and creative baby activities from Baumhaus, and the event’s ever-popular sessions specifically for dads, are set to be a huge hit once again. Plus, for the first time, this year’s event will hold special sessions for grandparents – so feel free to bring the whole fam.
There will be an expertly curated selection of exhibitors showcasing the best practitioners (Urban Hatch, the Round Clinic, Physiomotion, UpHealth and more), baby products (BabyBjorn, Babyzen, Malabar and more) and healthcare providers (including Annerley, Gleneagles Hospital and Matilda Hospital). Get lactation advice and baby massages from Gleneagles Hospital, inquire about services provided by Matilda Hospital, specific to the local Japanese community, take part in pre and postnatal exercise sessions from Barre 2 Barre and even partake in some well-deserved pampering courtesy of emmanuel F.
As you would expect, this event has been designed to be as family-friendly as possible. No need to worry about you or bubs getting hangry at this event as there will be specially designated feeding spaces and a diaper changing area, along with the F&B Lounge for parents to take a breather. And the best part? It’s FREE! Yep, the admission to the event is entirely free, but registration is an absolute must as no walk-ins will be accepted. Remember to get there nice and early, too, as the first 200 attendees will receive a free Premium Goodie Bag packed with quality items. But, let’s be honest, what new parents aren’t already up at the crack of dawn?
