Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy Partners with POGS for a Special "Run For Mom" Event

Many of us are very fortunate to have been able to afford prenatal care and give birth in a hospital attended by doctors and nurses. Unfortunately, not all women have access to good maternal care

advocates for moms: POGS and Mederma officials
It is this reason why Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy established MederMom, an advocacy campaign that aims to build a community in support of moms where mothers support and care for other mothers.

Those who have already given birth know how challenging it is to go through a pregnancy. And yet, expectant moms would always put the care of their families first. Thus, MederMom wants to give them the care they need during this delicate period so that their journey towards motherhood could be a Belly Beautiful one.

As part of this advocacy, Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, together with the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society (POGS), dedicated a special run for MederMoms last November 21 at Camp Aguinaldo. The event had runners from the very young to energetic seniors and we all had fun running for a good cause. It's also my first time to run in this venue and I liked how the streets are nicely paved and lined with trees. Plus, the gentle wind blowing around us made running there a very pleasant experience.

It was evident how the organizers take the concept of care seriously because this was the only run, so far, where runners were pampered so much! We were handed treats like candies, pastillas, and even frozen pops from the various water stations along the race route and we appreciated those thoughtful gestures so much!

According to Mederma® and POGS officials, they will continue to work hand in hand in introducing workshops and programs that will support access to maternal care in the country. It's good to know that there are organizations like them that advocate for this cause. There is indeed beauty in moms caring for fellow moms.
