This Mother’s Day, Don’t Forget Moms-to-Be!

Groundbreaking DVD for Black and Latina Expectant Moms Debuts at Walmart and walmart.com on April 15th


Long Island NY March 31, 2008—Shon Gables Productions LLC and The Mocha Manual Company, Inc. announce the Mother’s Day release of The Mocha Manual to a Fabulous Pregnancy DVD sold exclusively at Walmart and walmart.com on April 15th.

The Mocha Manual to a Fabulous Pregnancy DVD is the first-of-it’s-kind, hip, and informative guide that turns your television into the girlfriend every pregnant Black and Latina woman needs in maternity and beyond—chock full of straight talking expert advice and mom-to-mom words of wisdom.

Based on the top-selling and NAACP Image Award nominated book The Mocha Manual to a Fabulous Pregnancy (Amistad/HarperCollins) by Kimberly Seals Allers, the instructional video features segments on fitness, medical matters, healthy eating, style, mental and spiritual wellness, family finances, and newborn care. It is hosted by nationally syndicated television host, Shon Gables.

With a team of experts and help from celebrity moms like Spike Lee’s wife Tonya Lewis Lee – a best selling author, award winning producer and accomplished attorney, Grammy-winning gospel artist Deleon Sheffield, and Rene Syler, television personality and author, moms-to-be have everything they need to be fabulous in pregnancy and motherhood. Like a true girlfriend, expectant women don’t want to pregnant without one.

“The DVD is down-to-earth, funny and chock full of information that speaks directly to women of color,” says Gables.

“I’m proud to team up with Shon Gables to produce this groundbreaking DVD to help reverse the tide of poor statistical outcomes for births to Black and Latina women of all socioeconomic levels,” says Allers, author and most recently former senior editor of Essence magazine. According to the March of Dimes, black women are nearly twice as likely to have a premature birth than white women. African American women also have the highest rate of low birth weight babies, according to the CDC.

The groundbreaking DVD is prepackaged with a special Mother’s Day coupon to receive one free 100% cotton infant Onesie and a discount on the new mocha-flavored maternity collection at www.mochamanual.com. This makes the DVD the perfect gift that keeps on giving to mom and baby.

Retail price: $9.96
