Mangaluru, Feb 8, 2016: MoM - Moms of Mangalore, a Facebook group of 9000 strong and growing likeminded mothers from the region, organised their inaugural meet up of fellow member mommies and their kids at Cherry square at 4.30 pm on the 7th of February, 2016, sponsored by Tinystep, India’s largest parenting network.
The idea behind the event was to get Mangalorean mothers off the virtual world of Facebook and encourage them to meet in real, so that moms from Mangalore can have a meaningful and personal connection.
The guest speaker was Mrs. Irol Pais, wife of renowned doctor Dr. Christopher Pais who shared her views on motherhood and parenting with the audience. MOM also encouraged other mommies to meet up and carry on the vision of the group of a more integrated and united Mangalore. The meet up also included a session on mommies getting to know each other, followed by fun games for the kids. Gifts for the children were sponsored by Octaplus medical app, Ortho1 speciality clinic and Baby Choice.
MOM is a non profit, non religious and non political group. As a part of the group’s initiative, they have a panel of doctors who are selflessly responding to queries from the members. A Nutritionist, health support groups, lactation specialist, baby food recipes from experienced chefs, contests, mass child immunization reminders, daily parenting tips, women health tips published by our doctors, Mompreneur Mondays (forum for Mothers to display their entrepreneurial skills via posts on their businesses) are some other initiatives of the group.
Further, through their thoughtful members, they have contributed Rs 29,500 to the Chennai flood relief funds. With many more initiatives in the works, their effort is to only make Mangalore a haven for the future through it’s people, mostly through its mothers.
