Safe and Healthy Living For Mothers and Children
During the award giving ceremony, two brands stood out as the honorary winners of Motherhood Choice Awards 2022. Insurance brand, Manulife Malaysia, won the award for the Best Child Coverage Plan Award for their prenatal product, Manulife Precious Gift. The Best Child Coverage Plan award recognises the brand’s outstanding commitment to providing children with all-around protection, both physically and financially.
Through Manulife Precious Gift, which provides essential protection as early as 13 weeks of pregnancy and continues until the child grows up, parents can fully focus on their parenthood journey.
“It is an honour that Manulife Precious Gift has gained the trust of parents. Receiving the award for Best Child Coverage Plan is an honour for us. Here at Manulife, we would like to give the most precious gift to all mothers so that both she and her baby are protected from the negatives that come with life.
Being a first-time mother can be both exciting and overwhelming all at once, but as mothers, we understand that it will all be worthwhile in the end. The journey of parenthood begins with the most beautiful adventure a person can take, which is being pregnant. Every significant developmental milestone may cause parents to wonder if their child is growing properly and getting the right protection.
Thanks to Manulife Precious Gift, both mothers and babies’ livelihood will be how we make every day better for mom and baby!” said Rosalynn Lai, Vice President of Marketing at Manulife Malaysia, upon receiving this award.
Pregnancy diagnostic brand, Clearblue was awarded the honour of Best Pregnancy Kit for their advanced product, Clearblue’s Digital Pregnancy Kit. As a well known name among women and mothers, the pregnancy test brand easily won the title for its exceptional technology in pregnancy testing. Its Digital Pregnancy Kit provides efficient and reliable results with a new conception indicator and smart dual sensor, helping mothers-to-be in determining their pregnancy more accurately.
Ellaine Lee, Senior Product Manager of Germax Sdn Bhd shares, “Having to win this award goes to show that our product is positively effective among women and mothers across the nation. As a brand that works towards perfecting the technology of pregnancy diagnostics, it is an honour to be recognised by the public through this category at the Motherhood Choice Awards 2022.
We hope to continue pursuing this goal in ensuring all women have access to safe, accurate and easy pregnancy testing.”
Life is A Journey with The Parenting SuperApp by Motherhood
Guests and attendees of this year’s Mother Choice Awards also had the chance to experience the soft launch of Nuren Group’s upcoming offering, The Parenting SuperApp by Motherhood. Carefully planned out and designed with the intention to democratise information on parenting and motherhood life, the application is the latest innovation by the company.
The Parenting SuperApp by Motherhood hopes to bring mothers closer to information and content relating to pregnancy, motherhood, childcare and more.
The SuperApp is also set to showcase more unique features including an Ovulation & Due Date Calculator, Pregnancy Tracker, and frequent Community Programs for mothers to join and connect with other women within the Motherhood community.
The Parenting SuperApp by Motherhood has been in development for 6 months – perfecting its designs and features to make it user friendly for all parents and expecting mothers. The SuperApp has acquired close to 5,000 downloads in the beta testing round in the past few months.
Kelvin Leow, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Nuren Group expounds, “In this constantly advancing society, we understand and believe that it is crucial to go digital. The parenting industry is a relatively niche market but that doesn’t mean attention should not be given to it. So far, we’ve acquired over five thousand downloads of the app with our Beta Testing feature.
With The Parenting SuperApp by Motherhood, we hope to provide mothers, parents and even caregivers the accessibility to information, solutions and creative content on all the aspects of parenting. Hence, I believe that this creation is not just an ambitious goal but also a noble one.”
The application is set to be officially launched in Q2 2023 and Motherhood is hoping to continue its efforts to further strengthen the motherhood community through the app.
