You asked. We delivered. Following our successful first #TalkingMotherhood Event in May, we hosted another intimate gathering in New York City late September with beautiful, hardworking, inspirational women and moms to share stories about maternal wellness and self-care. The event was the second in Mitera's event series called the 'Talking Motherhood', focused on redefining motherhood for the modern mother. Four highly-regarded wellness experts who are moms themselves shared their own experiences and tips under the topic Maternal Wellness: Art of Self-Care. The panelists included nationally recognized experts ALISA VITTI, Integrative Nutritionist, Hormone Expert, and Author, ASHLY YASHCHIN, Founder of Barley + Oats, KRISTIN MCGEE, Celebrity Yoga + Pilates Instructor and REBECCA SINN, Entertainment & Special Projects Director at SELF Magazine. Yoko, Mitera's founder opened the night's discussion by sharing her experience working in the field of maternal and child health in the developing world and how she feels incredibly fortunate and at the same time responsible to live her own life to the fullest while uplifting others along the way. Throughout the evening, the panelists were generous in sharing honest and often hilarious anecdotal stories from their own lives and wellness tips and philosophy with the audience. Many from the audience also shared their own struggles and inspirational stories about wellness and the importance of self-care with others. The mood of the event was incredibly supportive, empowering and inspirational where people shed tears, shared laughter and hugs and gained new friends.
Guests enjoyed amazing and nutritious food courtesy of Barley + Oats, some raspberry and mint infused water and sweets. Before and after the enlightened discussion, all those in attendance shopped our collection, tried on samples with some walking away with their new Mitera purchases.
Thanks to our amazing partner, SELF Magazine, all those in attendance was treated with a free copy of the October issue which features our fearless Founder, Yoko. We definitely felt the love and power of the motherhood community at this event again and people lingered long after the event to chat. We want to thank the amazing panelists and audience for our successful second Talking Motherhood event which was again educational, inspirational and empowering all at the same time. We can hardly wait for the next event. Stay tuned.
