Bloom 2017 :: Recap

moms at Bloom 2017We’re still sad it’s over.

On May 20, 2017, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. we had the BEST time hanging with 150 of our Bloom buddies. That’s right — from attendees to vendors to panelists to workshop presenters — we all gathered together at Bloom 2017 to talk about those very first stages of motherhood: pregnancy through those first two years after bringing home baby. 

A huge thanks to Cook Children’s for hosting Bloom and providing the perfect venue for mingling and learning. The classroom sizes were perfect, the snacks were a hit, and the information and resources provided were . . . AMAZING!

First Spring Doula Bloom 2017The numerous vendors participated because they have a service or product to offer to local moms who are in this stage of parenting. From music exposure to family photography to play spaces and children’s literature, the vendors were a wealth of knowledge and help to Bloom mamas. In addition, all participated in the swag bags and/or giveaways. These vendors included:

To begin and end the Bloom event, local experts in all things motherhood participated in panel discussions. It was certainly a highlight if not a favorite moment from the afternoon. A huge thanks to our experts and local moms!
