What is MommyCon?
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.
Who will be speaking at MommyCon in my city?
We announce each city’s preview schedule at least 60 days prior to the event date. For a list of some of our current and past speakers, you can view our speakers page.
Do you have event ambassadors, if so how do I become one?
How many people will be attending MommyCon?
MommyCon attendance varies in each city but a typical event has a minimum of 750 attendees.
Can I bring my stroller to MommyCon?
Strollers are welcome at the event. However, we will ask for strollers to be folded if crowding becomes an issue.
What is your infant feeding policy?
We believe that parents have the right to feed their child wherever they please. The infant feeding lounge is also available as a private women only area.
Who will be exhibiting at MommyCon?
We will release exhibitor information approximately 30 days before each event.
Registration, Gift Bags, and Giveaways.
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. These badges have space on the front to write in your name and a little bit of info about yourself. We’ve found this is a great way to break the ice and meet other attendees. If you have a ticket type that includes a gift bag, you will be given a wrist band that you will then trade in when you pick up your bag. And let’s not forget the giveaways! Make sure to check the back of your attendee badge. If it says “You’re a Winner!” head back to registration later in the day to claim your prize.
My company would love to exhibit, sponsor or present at MommyCon, are you still accepting applications?
Yes, please send an email to us at email@example.com with information about your company.
Can MommyCon come to my town?
Possibly! If you would like MommyCon to come to your town or big city, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can see what we can do.
Do you offer ASL interpreters?
If you are in need of an ASL interpreter, please register for the event a minimum of 60 days in advance indicating your need for an ASL interpreter. Upon registering please email us at email@example.com indicating the city in which interpreting services are being requested.

I can no longer attend the event or would like to downgrade my ticket. Can I get a full or partial refund or can my gift bag be shipped to me? Can I transfer my ticket to another event?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds (full or partial) or exchanges between events. Gift bags cannot be shipped and must be picked up at the event.
However, tickets are always transferable to another ticket holder. You should have an email with a button marked “download tickets”. Click that button to be taken to your ticket(s). When you click download, it will open a .pdf file with your ticket(s) and give you the option to print. You could also save it to a mobile device. We can scan you in at the event with the bar code of the ticket either as an image on a mobile device or as a paper ticket. To transfer your ticket(s), you simply need to send the appropriate ticket or tickets to the new ticket holder. You do not need to confirm a name change or transfer with MommyCon staff. If you do not have your e-ticket(s) and need them to be resent to you, please simply email email@example.com with the first and last name you used when you purchased tickets, and the city of the event your tickets are for, and we will re-send your tickets to you so you can transfer them as you please!
