Bloom 2019 {Recap}


Our second annual Bloom event is in the books and we couldn’t be more thrilled about how it went down or more grateful to you all for showing up! 150 local moms took a day for themselves- an accomplishment in and of itself! We talked about weighty, important things like maternal mental health, and purely awesome things like car seat cleaning services!?!  We handed out tons of swag and prizes and freebies. We ate donuts, technically donut holes, cupcakes, and bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts.  But best of all we got to meet some of you and breath the same air. With the help of our sponsors, we were able to connect local parents with resources to build them up, lighten their load, and encourage them on the beautiful, winding path of parenthood. We are so grateful to be part of this beautiful community and we can’t wait to watch it grow, one Bloom at a time.

We want to say a particular word of thanks to our Title and Gold Level Sponsors. Without the support of The Advanced Baby Imaging Lab, Amica, College Bound Saver, and Women and Infants Hospital, this event would not be possible. We are grateful for their support of Bloom and the resources and support they provide to our community. 

Missed Bloom? Here’s the scoop on the event: 

The Venue: 

Hope Artiste Village was the perfect spot to spread our 30+ tables loaded with info and freebies and still have enough room for countless strollers and pregnant bellies to make their way through our sea of resources!

Cravings Bar:

Whether your craving was sweet, salty, or sour, Bj’s Market had us covered. Candy?  Chips?  Pickles?  Fruit Snacks? Check. Check. Check. Check. (Ok, we didn’t eat them all at once…but no judgment if you did. Pregnancy gets weird.)

Oh, and did we mention there was bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts from Black Pear? And some Knead Donuts? Yeah, we did. ‘Cause they were delicious and we are totally re-craving them right now. 


An Amazing Panel of Moms:

Our panel of experts gave us the 411 on maternal mental health, what to expect during the postpartum period and (so importantly) where to go when we need help. 

Self Care and A Spot to Take Care of the Babes:

An extra special thank you to Twenty Stories and Inspeiors, who allowed us to use their space for our Mama Self Care Station and Family Lounge.
