{You’re Invited} Bloom 2019 :: An Event for New and Expecting Moms in Birmingham

0

Birmingham Moms Blog is thrilled to announce that we are bringing Bloom back to our city for the 2nd year! We are linking arms with the City Moms Blog Network {our parent site} as well as 60+ other Sister Sites across the nation to celebrate moms as they enter into motherhood for the first, second, third, or more time!!!

This exclusive event is geared towards moms {and dads and grandmothers!} who are planning to grow their family, currently expecting, in their first year of motherhood, or fostering/adopting little ones. This year, like last year, we will be holding the event at the beautiful UAB Women & Infants Center to provide an evening of pampering, delicious food, informational resources, and of course — plenty of swag and giveaways, too.

***To stay up-to-date on all of the details of Bloom, we encourage you to officially join the Facebook event page, share with any new and expecting moms you may know, and get ready for a wonderful evening celebrating motherhood. And be sure to subscribe to our newsletter because there may be a special offer related to Bl??m when tickets are about to go on sale **wink wink, nudge nudge***

NURSING ROOM

Our partners at Children’s of Alabama are sponsoring a room for nursing mothers for the 2nd year (or those of us who just like a little quiet when we whip out a bottle). This will be a calm, quiet space for those who need it, and there will even be extra refreshments because you deserve them! Babies one year and under who can be worn are absolutely invited to Bloom with their mamas, and Children’s of Alabama is making it even easier for that to happen!
