2019 is a buzzing year for the FHMOMS community especially to the team behind each mileage.

FHMOMS was blessed with the unwavering support from the growing number of its members; the Facebook Page Group has over 165,000 members across the globe while the Facebook Community Page has more than 75,000 followers. With the tireless effort of its Founder, MK Bertulfo, FHMOMS achieved remarkable advancement in the following:

  • Media Mileage – recently, FHMOMS is being featured in various radio shows, podcasts, blogs and magazines, and TV shows. 
  • Networks and Collaborations – 2019 has brought the community opportunities to widen connections. Invites from different events and collaborations out-poured.
  • Engagement Activities – it was also observed that FHMOMS went an extra mile on engaging its community members to various nationwide events and activities. This includes but not limited to online training, face-to-face training, expos, conferences, talks, exhibits, charity works, meet-ups, online raffles, online polls, and many more. 
  • Technology – this year, FHMOMS also explored the possibility of developing apps and using tools to make our programs easier and better. This still on the process, it is good that we already have begun.
  • Funding and Business Partnerships – with the effort of our Founder, MK Bertulfo, FHMOMS participated in renowned competitions that support startup businesses. All these competitions, FHMOMS was a finalist.
  • Endorsements – with various products reaching out for endorsements, FHMOMS learned to screen the products that would reflect the community’s culture and perspective.

Having said all these achievements, Founder MK Bertulfo planned to culminate FHMOMS’ prosperous year with a productive yet fun event. With the help of volunteer mombers, FHMOMS’ core team, and the sponsors the party was a success!

The celebration was held in Max’s Restaurant in Sucat, Parañaque City. It was attended by an overwhelming more than 700 people, which almost doubled the expected number of guests.

“No event is perfect.”

While the program included panel discussions, talks, games, raffles, exhibits, and activities for kids, FHMOMS encountered major mishaps. It seems impossible to accommodate all the attendees who conquered the terrible traffic that day just to share the celebration with the community. There were issues with registration, loot bags, seats, food, venue space, parking, etc. Despite all these, the organizing team carried on with the event and made everything even more fun with the appearance of Elsa and Anna, numerous raffle prizes, crazy games, informative talks, and inspiring panel discussions.

It was such an exhausting day, yet it did not change the happiness and fun experience everyone has shared on that event. It is a celebration of effort, determination, love, and support, everyone has invested throughout the year. Sure it was not perfect, we learn from this event, and we promise to have a much bigger and better celebration next year!

FHMOMS is sending virtual hugs to the organizing team, to the sponsors, to the guests, to the attendees, and of course to our community Founder, MK Bertulfo. Let us wrap-up this year with a happy smile and a hopeful heart.

Watsons gathers winners across the Philippines for a special trip to Boracay

Event , Uncategorized

Watsons, one of Asia’s top health and beauty retailers, just gave away a 3-DAY / 2-NIGHT TRIP FOR 2 TO BORACAY to a total of 40 loyal card members!

As one of the most exciting highlights of the Share the Sun campaign last March, this promo had the simplest mechanics: all card members had to do was shop for their sun essentials at Watsons. Every P500 single-receipt purchase they made from one of Watsons’ participating products automatically got them e-raffle entries that qualified them for the promo!

This promo is aligned with Watsons’ effort to reward loyalty card members for trusting the retail chain for their health and beauty needs. Out of thousands of Watsons’ loyalty cardholders, twenty (20) lucky winners were drawn to share the sun with family and friends in no less than Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa, one of the most breathtaking getaways in the world.  It definitely was a luxurious way to reward shoppers’ loyalty.

The winners had an incredible stay in Boracay from October 25 – 27, 2019. Watsons gave away loot bags filled with island essentials which included, among others: a micellar cleanser for a smooth base, face masks for a glowing complexion, sunblock to keep skin protected, plus an after-sun spray to stay refreshed all day. 

While the winners were given ample time to explore the islands while being sun-protected from head to toe, the ultimate highlight of the entire experience was the thanksgiving dinner during the first night. To express their appreciation for the winners’ continuous loyalty, Watsons hosted an intimate buffet at Shangri-La’s magical Cielo Arena. Everyone had fun over good conversation and great food.

Want to get the chance to win exciting prizes too?

It’s easy! Just shop at Watsons with your Watsons Card.  The perks are awesome: lifetime membership, exclusive discounts, 2x more points on Watsons-branded products, 5x points on your first transaction during your birthday month, plus exclusive access to member events!

Babywearing Philippines honors ancient Filipino babywearing practices in International Babywearing Week 2019 celeb

Event , Parenting

Manila, Philippines – On October 13, Babywearing Philippines will lead at least 200 Filipino babywearing families nationwide to honor and celebrate the ancient practice of babywearing in the Philippines.

Babywearing Philippines is the 60,000-strong not-for-profit online support community on Facebook that advocates safe and proper babywearing among Filipino families all over the world.

Following the global theme, “Continuing the Tradition”, Babywearing Philippines is joining theworldwide babywearing community in celebrating International Babywearing Week in a one-day event at the Atrium of Eastwood Mall in Quezon City.

Babywearing is essentially carrying babies and small children in slings or carriers. Wearing a baby is actually a centuries-old practice in various cultures worldwide. Historical accounts and artifacts show that families of yore naturally incorporated babywearing in their daily lives as they kept their children literally close to them even as they searched for food, moved their shelter or worked in the fields.

In the Philippines, different indigenous groups still practice babywearing as it allows them to tend to household chores and in their livelihood activities while still being able to care for their children.

The Indigenous Peoples of the Cordillera refer to using a cloth, usually a blanket, tied to make a baby sling as “ubba” while the T’bolis in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato call it “s’libay.”

One of the highlights of the day-long event organized by Babywearing Philippines is a visual presentation of babywearing as it was practiced by Filipino ancestors featuring the different types of baby carriers used in the olden days.

At the event, modern-day babywearing Filipino families will be guided on how to properly wear babies in various carriers and will be taught techniques for special cases like newborns, preemies and multiple babies. 

There will be talks and discussions on making DIY carriers, natural parenting, effects of babywearing on mental health and physiological benefits of babywearing to health and fitness.

Attendees can also purchase limited edition IBW 2019 merchandise as well as imported and locally-produced baby carriers at discounted costs from participating retailers at the event. A lot of fun activities and raffle prizes are in store for both parents and children. Registration fee is at P350 per family via

FHMoms joins Hakab Na 2019!


Hakab Na! is the biggest gathering of breastfeeding communities in the Philippines. Families and breastfeeding advocates come together each year with the aim to promote not just the health and practical benefits of breastfeeding, but also to share the importance of providing proper support to breastfeeding mothers, and ultimately, normalize breastfeeding.

It is being held on August each year as part of the Philippines’ National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and International Breastfeeding Week. And also in participation of the yearly global breastfeeding celebration, The Global Big Latch On, where mothers simultaneously breastfeed their children in an effort to set a world record. Volunteers from all over the world from within the community host each location.

And this year, Filipina Homebased Moms (FHMoms), the biggest parenting and freelancing group for Pinay moms in the Philippines is taking part of this significant event! 

Just before the official Hakab Event takes place this year, the FHMOMs community will hold its first-ever PHOTO EXHIBIT and BREASTFEEDING MALL EVENT on August 8-10, 2019 in VISTA MALL TAGUIG CITY.

FHMoms supports mombers who choose to work from home so they can breastfeed their little ones and have more time with them rather than spend hours on the road to and from the office. We envision a Breastfeed and Work Anytime, Anywhere flexible set-up to give other moms a new perspective on how to thrive as parents in a much fulfilling and less draining way, at least. 


Because these moms did already!

 And they commit to giving inspiration to all the mommas out there.

Let’s meet some of these wonder mommas!

And take a sneak peek of the behind the scenes of the photoshoot happened last July 20, 2019, in Dreamland Cafe, Tagaytay.

That was made possible with this awesome Photography and Hair & Make-up crew….
