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.
MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. Our focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. Our seminars and workshops include; babywearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, child-proofing and more.
MommyCon Returns to DC
MommyCon, a first-of-its-kind natural parenting convention, returns to DC with a larger than ever event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, July 23rd, 2016.

The 2016 MommyCon builds on the success of the 2015 MommyCon, which reached an audience of 9,000 parents from 45 different states at nine sold-out conferences across the country. This year, MommyCon’s goals are even bigger. Xza Higgins, The company’s CEO and Program Director says: “In 2016 we aim to grow with our audience, just as their children have grown up with them. We will continue to offer sessions for new and expectant parents, but our goal is to provide offerings for every stage of early childhood. Our theme is aptly entitled ‘Growing Together.’”
