Reflecting on our first Baby Show!
Last week, the My Expert Midwife team travelled to the capital for our exhibition debut - The Baby Show at Olympia in London!
Celebrating our first birthday at the Show, we were joined by a whole host of celebrities, including our newly appointed brand ambassador, Georgia Jones. Georgia helped us officially mark our first year in business by talking to the media about her experiences of birth and motherhood, but also her thoughts on our product range. #Letsbehonest, she loves them – especially our Spritz for Bits and No Harm Nipple Balm which featured in her recent ‘Top 6 Mummy Buys’ on her You Tube series, Bump!
Along with a very well attended media event – where our joint founders discussed why they launched the brand and the ethos behind it – we also met so many lovely parents-to-be who came to our stand to talk about and purchase our products. We were also delighted to speak to many new mums who came to visit us, just to say ‘thank you’ for creating the range and making their pregnancy and birth experience a more enjoyable one.
As well as exhibiting, co-founder and resident midwife, Lesley Gilchrist, took to the main stage to talk common childbirth concerns. She also shared the stage with other experts as part of a panel discussion around parenting and mental wellbeing.
Whilst Lesley was in the One to One with the Experts area conducting private consultations, joint-founder Claire was treating expectant mums to a hand or foot massage on the My Expert Midwife stand.
We couldn’t be more delighted with how successful our first Baby Show experience was. Bring on the next one!
