BLOOM 2020: An Event for New and Expecting Moms


We are thrilled to be planning our fifth annual BLOOM – a national event for new and expecting moms! This event is geared towards moms who are currently expecting a baby, had a baby within the last year, or are planning on growing their family soon.

Check out last year’s BLOOM– see what all the fuss is about! Know that we are working our booties off to make this year bigger and better and more bountiful than ever!

We will be hosting it online in an exclusive Facebook group. It will be 7-9. We want to make sure that every one is safe as we go forward. 

At this exclusive night out:

  • ask questions of our panels of experts
  • learn about the newest must-have baby products
  • learn tips and tricks from other moms
  • glean a wealth of knowledge from healthcare professionals
  • experience the offerings of many locally owned businesses
  • get swag galore
  • enter to win spectacular giveaways
  • revel in a fabulous evening with friends, from the comfort of your own home!

Last year, there were 53 host cities and over 5000 moms in attendance! This year we hosted virtual events all across the country and it was even bigger and better than ever!
