Bump, Baby, & Beyond Dallas :: A City Moms Blog & TheBump.com Event {Registration Now Open!}

Entering into motherhood is such an exciting time, but often we are left with many questions too. What should I expect? Which products do I need? Who do I turn to for help? While we at Dallas Moms Blog strive to bring you up to date content right here on our locally focused parenting website and social media outlets, we also know that connecting offline with fellow moms and well known businesses and brands is invaluable too.

So on Wednesday, October 22nd, we have decided to partner together with The Bump and our network site City Moms Blog to bring you an event unlike anything we have ever done before! We hope you will join us for an exclusive evening tailored specifically to all of you new, expecting, and soon-to-be moms with sponsors, giveaways, and swag hand picked just for you.

Ticket holders will be treated to appetizers, dessert, pampering, breakaway sessions, and a Q&A with our panel of experts.

Please read below for all of the amazing details, and purchase your tickets HERE to join us for this special event.

Our Panel of Guest Speakers (& Moms)

headshot (1)Dana White is a mom to three and full-time writer. She started her blog, A Slob Comes Clean, as a way to focus on getting her own home under control. Through her website, podcasts, and e-books, she shares cleaning and organizing strategies that actually work in real life for real people. When she started her own deslobification journey, she had no idea that so many other women struggled the way she did. Dana now leads a community of more than 100,000 women who seek to improve their homes and provide a loving, functional environment for their families. And she’s funny.

During her single years, Heather spent more than a decade working in politics and non-profit management. She much prefers being a stay-at-home and homeschooling mom (but thinks its more difficult!). Follow her blog about body image, motherhood, and faith or connect with her via Facebook or Twitter.
