FAQ

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.

I can no longer attend the event, can I get a refund or transfer my ticket?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds or exchanges, but tickets are always transferable to another ticket holder. Since our recent ticketing system upgrade, the transfer process has been incredibly simplified, so if you’ve transferred in the past, you may want to note the changes. We’re excited about this simplification because it’s much faster and easier for all of our attendees to transfer tickets!
