It will be our Baby Z’s second month birthday tomorrow. It just seems like yesterday when we held her in our arms for the first time. Ej and I are First Time Parents. We are parents who want the best for our little one. I remember that before I gave birth, during the 9 months of pregnancy, we did a lot of things to prepare.
We attended a lot of workshops and seminars (by Medela Moms, LATCH, etc.). We attended the Birthing Class of Rome Kanapi. We read books — I think I have three different kinds of pregnancy books here with me. We read articles in the internet and I think I may be one of the frequent visitors of babycenter.com.ph.
There are a lot of things that we needed to learn. I think as parents, even if we strive to be perfect, we cannot be perfect. We’re only human. BUT (emphasis on BUT!), we can continuously educate ourselves so that we can make the best decision for our babies.
There were a lot of things on my mind back then that I wish someone would have given me the answers to. I wish I got to know more people who could help me early on and who would be my support group. These led me to create this workshop series in cooperation with Medela Moms, Inc. and The Learning Basket.
I designed the series to be a four part workshop on topics that deals with (1)pregnancy, (2)post labor and new born care, (3) toddler years and (4) child development and education. The workshop titles are as follows (just to give you an idea):
First Time Parents Workshop: What To Know Before Giving Birth

First Time Parents Workshop: Delivery and New Born Care
Date: June 29, 2013
First Time Parents Workshop: Toddler Care

We have already launched and announced the first of the four workshops.
