ABU DHABI Mums in Abu Dhabi are in for a treat beyond their imagination! They can look forward to a perfect day of pampering and fun at the Yummy Mummy Show on May 13 at The Grand Millennium, Al Wahda.

Live entertainment, freebies, expert medical advice and much more are in the offing for mums who want to get out of the house and mingle with fellow parents.

Making its debut in the capital, the show is conducted by ExpatWoman.com (based in Dubai) which is claimed to be the largest and most popular female and family focused expat website in the world.

“Whether you are a millennial mum, working mum, stay-at-home parent or those whose kids have flown the nest…this is your perfect retreat to enjoy and unwind,” says Rebecca Roberts, editor of ExpatWoman.

A virtual best friend

Established in 2002, ExpatWoman is a free information website that helps expatriate women across the globe set up and begin their lives in a new country.

“Not only do we have an online forum that is free to use for women, we have important information, free classifieds, deals, jobs listings as well as events for our readers to enjoy,” says Roberts. Since its inception, its content and information were written by women, focusing on the needs and interests of women on the move; by themselves or with their families.

Today, the website has become an indispensable resource for expats living or moving to the Middle East and has even gone global with Azerbaijan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam in the list. “We host seven dedicated sites for ME countries, and four in Asia, with over 200 global pages for expats worldwide,” says Roberts.

Not to be missed

She says she is excited about bringing the Yummy Mummy Show to the capital.

“It’s proven hugely successful in Dubai and now we want to provide the same platform to our readers and mums in Abu Dhabi,” she says.

The ExpatWoman team aims to bring the website to life and work closely with well-known brands and companies in the UAE to provide visitors a rewarding experience.

“Over the years we’ve worked closely with regional crafters and boutiques to provide a platform for them to share their work to individuals living here. Be prepared to find some unique, bespoke and handcrafted items during our YMS. Plus there’ll be free activities and refreshment for all to enjoy,” she says.
