“Motherhood Begins Now” – FREE FAMILY EVENT
Sunday May 1st at Writer’s Boot Camp at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica
Time: 12 Noon to 4 PM
The 4th Annual Educational Campaign founded by Anna Getty & co-founded by Alisa Donner officially “kicked-off” in Los Angeles. With celebrity Hosts: Ali Larter, Amy Smart, Anna Getty, and honorary Host Brenda Strong.
A line of pregnant women, new parents, those planning to start families, infants and children wrapped around the building as the event officially launched with a rallying welcome from P.A.M. Advisor and Stroller Strides founder, Lisa Druxman. The standing room only crowd were inspired and educated by Expert Panelists, including pediatricians Alan Greene, MD, FAAP, Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, and Jay Gordon, MD, FAAP, leading doula Ana P. Markel, Renee Sharp of the EWG, and Alyssa Berlin, PsyD, Upstairs the quiet soothing Holistic mommy spa pampering services were provided by GreenBliss EcoSpa and Freshology. Whether inside or outside, children were heard laughing and enjoying arts & crafts, potting plant, getting face painting and non-toxic mani/pedis courtesy of Lady Bug Jane. Energy filled the main stage when the exotic high summer excursion maternity fashion show MC’d by style expert and Bump It Up author Amy Tara Koch, produced by Expecting Models, and presented by A Pea in the Pod, highlighted the ecofashions of designer Elizabeth Shane Quinn. Amy also brought down the house with her Bump it Up Style lounge, featuring the yummiest cupcakes EVER!!! She style the pregnant fashionista but good. Jessica Denay launched her new book with a signing at PAM this year, “The Hot Mom’s Handbook.” And the appetites of all attending was happily satiated by award winning food trucks The Border Grill, Vesuvio, and Sno-Con Amor. Did we mention the mommy & baby shopping area? It filled the entire courtyard and spilled inside all the way to the main stage. Tons of sampling, advice and education made possible by all our sponsors and partners
A fabulous day of FREE family fun!
