Over 300 area mothers-to-be and their friends and family attended the first Mommy to Bee New York Expo held this past Sun., Mar. 10th.

As sponsored by Marketing & Advertising Solutions Inc., together with sponsors and partners, The Mommy to Bee Expo brought together expectant moms, new moms and moms of toddlers as they learned about products and services from newborn care, childcare, fitness and healthcare representatives.

Attendees also sampled baby feeding, gear, giftware, nursery, pregnancy and maternity products and more, all while learning how to prepare for their growing families.

“I wanted to touch and see everything. All of the vendors were so amazing and had beautiful displays, with so much information,” said Veronica González. “My sister who’s also expecting invited me. It looked like a great family event. I was glad to see all of the mommies-to-be, the grandmas-to-be, and dads-to-be there too.”
