Bloom 2018: An Event for New and Expecting Moms

bloom facebook

We are thrilled to bring Bloom, a national event for New and Expecting Moms, to Providence for the first time. What is Bloom? Bloom is an afternoon dedicated to help you learn about all things mom and baby. You will have the opportunity to  connect with one another and learn about products and services that make life easier, as well as listen to some AMAZING local moms dish on their best advice for early motherhood. We’ll have food, beverages, breastfeeding support, babywearing education, giveaways, swag, as well as hair and make professionals on site providing quick “how to look human when you haven’t slept in a week” consults.

This event is geared towards moms who are currently expecting a baby (whether it’s your 1st or 3rd), had a baby within the last year, are a foster mom of infants, or are planning on growing your family soon. This is a kid-free event, with the exception of small children who are worn in a carrier. We look forward to seeing you soon and also encourage you to join the Facebook Group for additional fun updates!

A major teaching affiliate of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University for obstetrics, gynecology, and newborn pediatrics, as well as a number of specialized programs in women’s medicine, Women & Infants is the ninth largest stand-alone obstetrical service in the country and the largest in New England with approximately 8,500 deliveries per year.
