It all started when....
MummyCon organisers, Mim Dart and Dominique Ben, met through their local Australian Breastfeeding Association group in 2015. They quickly formed a close friendship, bonding over their uncertainty of how to be kind in parenting their energetic, emotional and fiercely passionate 2 year old sons.
At the time, both mums were part of a broader online community; gathered together, sharing 5 core values of breastfeeding, babywearing, co-sleeping, baby led weaning and modern cloth nappies. This community is the inspiration for MummyCon.
Over the last 2 years, we have watched the Facebook group grow to over 6,000 members and a very active "in real life" community of parents predominately based in South Eastern Melbourne.
We dreamt about the possibility of gathering together our community's favourite parenting experts and favourite brands into one epic expo day. A day when we didn't have to fight the formula company promotion minefield, hear about making our babies cry it out or stress about breastfeeding our 2 year old in public. And so was born the idea of MummyCon 2018.
We are so excited to share our dream with you.
Dominique is proud Mummy to Sebastian, 2 years and Emmanuel, 4 years.
Mim is proud Mummy to Ava, 2 years, and Elijah, 4 years.
