*Please Note: This event is geared towards new and expectant moms although spouses are welcome! Due to space constraints, it’s advised that children UNDER one year old should be worn in a carrier or held as there isn’t much room for strollers. Since this event is designed to be a Moms Night Out, we ask that children over the age of ONE not attend as it’s designed for moms rather than families.
Need to nurse? No problem! We’ll be providing attending moms with a space to nurse your little ones during the event!
The evening will kick off sweet treats, light bites, and mocktails (courtesy of La Croix Sparkling Water) for our moms to enjoy and relax with other moms in their life stage. Throughout the events, guests will be encouraged to mingle and learn about amazing local and national businesses that will make your life easier and meet some of our experts in person through brief educational sessions.
We’ll have breakaway times where moms can choose to sit in on for a brief 20 minute discussion on a motherhood topic presented by our sponsors. Experts like Melissa of Newborn Nightingales will be on hand to share important information and answer questions about newborn sleep, Serving Life Chiropractic will be providing ways to be the best you physically while pregnant and post-partum, and even other local experts like My Kids DDS and Emler Swim School will be sharing their tips and tricks!
This is a national event with over 60 fellow sister sites hosting the same event on the same day! Share this event with your friends in other cities by seeing who’s participating. Then, make sure to share the excitement by following along using #CMBNBloom17 and locally with #DallasBloom17.
And of course, one of our favorite local photographers, AKA Photography, will be on hand to capture the whole event and will be sharing photos later!
