A Look Back at Bloom: A New & Expectant Mom Event

We had so much fun planning a special morning for new and expectant moms to come relax, get a few tips for their new adventure in motherhood, and win some amazing prizes. Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children was our venue for the morning, and they did an excellent job of welcoming our group! 

JI2A4996Bloom was part of a national event with over 40 fellow City Moms Blog Network sister sites hosting the same event! Being part of such a huge event taking place all over the country added another level of excitement! Many of the women in attendance took to social media to share pictures using the hashtags #CMBNBloom16 and locally with #BloomDallas16.JI2A4850

My Kids DDS, Costco Wholesale, and Babies R Us partnered with us to make this event possible. Upon arriving the women were greeted with a stylish canvas tote stuffed to the brim with goodies and samples perfect for any new or expectant mom. Thanks to all our swag bag sponsors who helped us to make each attendee feel extra special!

The women also enjoyed a lovely breakfast courtesy of Costco Wholesale, Susie Cakes, and Berry Naked. Yum!

JI2A4785These mamas were armed with tips from the pros thanks to our speakers from Newborn Nightingales, Gymboree Play & Learn, and North Dallas Doula Associates. Melissa O’Neill, owner of Newborn Nightingales spoke on the topic of newborn sleep and the importance of getting your baby on a schedule. Gymboree Play & Learn offered excellent suggestions on age appropriate activities for babies 0-12 months, and Melissa Espey-Mueller, of North Dallas Doula Associates spoke on everything from birth plans to nursing your baby postpartum. 

JI2A4980We also had wall to wall tables of vendors handing out samples and doing product demonstrations. We want to give a special thanks to Crane, bugaboo, Brett Nicole Interiors, Happy Family, PediaQ, and BirthPointe for providing valuable information for our attendees and even doing their own giveaways! Speaking of giveaways, if you attended the event, you had a pretty good shot at walking away with a fabulous prize from one of our sponsors. Thank you to all who participated and made the event such a success!JI2A5001
