The Sassy Pregnancy Club and Stork’s Nest Singapore are kicking off 2016 in a big way with a fabulous FREE coffee morning featuring two legendary doulas, plus free giveaways and much more!
We’re giddy with excitement for the first Sassy Pregnancy Club/ Stork’s Nest Pregnancy coffee morning of 2016! In preparation for the arrival of some sweet little monkeys (like what we did there?), we’re inviting all you glowing mamas-to-be to a coffee morning to talk about “Everything You Want to Know About Doulas!”
Two of Singapore’s leading doulas, Tania Grose-Hodge and Johanna Wagner, will give us the lowdown on all there is to know about doulas, including stuff you may have been to afraid to ask! With more than 15 years’ experience between them supporting labouring women in Singapore (not to mention four languages spoken fluently!), they’ll expertly run us through the various options us mamas have for giving birth in Singapore, including choosing a hospital, obstetricians and other birth care providers.
They will also talk about how doulas can play a vital role in helping you get the birth you desire, including useful info on the all-important birth plan. To get a head start, check out Tania’s birth plan advice here, including four free downloadable templates!
We’re not stopping there, mama! Tania and Johanna will be accompanied by our Pregnancy Club friends who will be providing great offers to mamas and answering any questions you have related to their products and programmes:
The founder (and basically fairy godmother) of Stork’s Nest Singapore, Jani Combrink, will sadly be leaving in Singapore in March, and while she will still be available for online questions, this will be your last chance to speak with her in person, mamas! Jani has graciously agreed to speak on all things lactation and breastfeeding — you simply DO NOT want to miss this, mamas!
Folks specialising in family, pediatrics and travel medicine from the International Medical Clinic and the lovely ladies from the New Mothers’ Support Group, the social community connecting new mamas, will be on hand to chat to you about their services for you and your bubs! You can even join the NMSG network for a special price of $30 for the year (usually $35) so be sure to stop by their booth!
Looking to stay fit throughout your pregnancy and beyond? Fitness company Ooberfit will also be there, and they’re offering some major treats for three coffee morning mamas: Up for grabs is a free 45-minute post-natal one-to-one consult with awesome Ooberfit founder Sam Blakey herself (worth $100), plus a voucher for three more post-natal sessions at either East Coast (Siglap) or Botanic Gardens (worth an additional $90). Winners will be picked out of a hat before the end of the coffee morning so don’t forget to enter at the Ooberfit booth. Oh, and every mama can also pick up two free trial sessions just by heading over and saying hello — yay!
It doesn’t hurt to look good while you work out, right mama? Rumi Yoga Wear offers trend forward, eco-friendly activewear and have just launched their colourful maternity line to suit your growing bump, with five gorgeous designs to accommodate your sense of style! There will be a Lucky Draw with a chance to win one pair of Maternity Leggings and a headband if you sign up for their mailing list. The winner will be announced at the end of the event — definite incentive to stick around!
This will also be a good opportunity to plan for the future; learn more about St. James’s Place Wealth Management’s free talks on Wills, Guardianship & Protection for expats in Singapore. They’ll even be ready with Temporary Guardianship forms and can guide you through it right on the spot!
Family fave Tanderra will have a great offer for mamas looking for a relaxing escape within Singapore: buy a two week trial pass to their amazing colonial-inspired family retreat for $25 (usually $100!), which will include a free pre- or post-natal wellness class just so you can see for yourself how awesome this place really is!
A coffee morning wouldn’t be complete without some yummy treats! Expat Kitchen, one of Singapore’s leading cooking schools, will be offering delicious (and free!) muffins, cakes and slices, so do leave a little room in your belly. Tea, coffee, juice and water will also be available, of course!
To capture all the fun, award-winning Littleones Photography will be snapping away and also offering a “photo your bump” photo shoot at no charge, with all prints available on Sassy Mama’s Facebook page after the event! Littleones will be offering a bespoke promotion for Sassy Mama attendees that includes two photo sessions (both a maternity and newborn shoot) for the price of one — either in their boutique studio, at your home or at a location special to you. They will also design you a personalised pregnancy announcement card to share with friends and family!
