I haven’t been pregnant for over a year, but regardless I am so excited to be a PAM Blogger for this year’s celebration. Pregnancy Awareness Month is celebrating its 5th anniversary in a major way.
What is PAM you ask? Well it’s an organization dedicated to inspiring women during pregnancy with educational initiatives spotlighting nutrition, wellness, and all around nurturing. On the social front, P.A.M. encourages women to engage with fellow pregnantistas and form supportive “communities” via vibrant social media outreach and live events across the country. The month-long campaign focus on four key initiatives: Education, Exercise, Nutrition & Wellness, and Nurture.
The kick-off event is Sunday, May 6 from Noon-4pm at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles. I so wish I could go. I was fortunate enough to be at the first EVER PAM event and it was fabulous. I can’t imagine what all they’ve done to step it up. This year’s event is hosted by Lisa Loeb, Catherine McCord, Josie Maran, and Anna Getty.
Even if you can’t attend the L.A. event, they’ll be streaming the expert panel sessions on Ustream. Tune in to my Facebook page for details. Or you can check out some of their other events around CA, Chicago and Atlanta.
If you are pregnant or thinking about trying to conceive, this a great campaign to tune into. To learn more about PAM, follow the hashtag #MayPAM on Twitter, check out their Facebook page or follow their Pinterest boards.
