MommyCon Memphis will take place on April 29, 2017. MommyCon is a nationwide convention series dedicated to creating and nurturing a community of parents and parents-to-be in celebration of natural parenting. MommyCon takes a gentle and positive approach to educating parents about the emotional and physical benefits of natural birthing, breastfeeding and babywearing. We advocate values of holistic health, eco-friendly diapering, child safety standards and procedures, and female self-care and wellness. Our mission is to create a community of support, acceptance and non-judgement for parents journeying through parenthood.

How registration works:
Show us your ticket on your phone, or as a print out, and we will get you your badge at registration. You can come and go as you please once you have your attendee badge.
Who should attend:
New and expectant parents and those that have toddlers. Our sessions focus on the first five years of a child’s life and advice for parents of every stage.
Strollers are welcome at the event. However, we will ask for strollers to be folded if crowding becomes an issue.
We have teamed up with Share the Love for cloth diaper donations and The Carrying On Project for baby carrier donations. Both of these organizations take new and used items to give to families in need. Share the Love provides cloth diapers to families who could not otherwise afford them, and the Carrying On Project provides baby carriers to military families.
ASL Interpretation Services:
As of 4/21/17, we have not received any requests for ASL interpretation services or any other accessibility accommodations, so these services will not be available at this event.
Please remember that you will be receiving emails leading up to the event with more details and please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates! You can find us on Twitter, on Instagram, and on Facebook.
Tickets are non-refundable, but can be transferred at any time by emailing your e-ticket to the new attendee.
