Have you heard? We are thrilled to be brining Bloom, an event for new and expectant mothers to Raleigh on April 30th! Thanks to City Moms Blog Network and Dr. Smith’s, Bloom will be taking place in close to 40 other cities around the country the same week that we host here in Raleigh.
With so few events like this in our immediate area, we jumped at the chance to host and are excited to have partnered with WakeMed North Family Health & Women’s Hospital to give local moms and moms-to-be the chance to mingle, meet local businesses and organizations geared towards their needs, take part in some amazing giveaways and best of all, attend one of two open panel discussions with some of the Triangle’s top experts in their fields. Attendees will get the opportunity to have an OBGYN, a pediatrician, a nurse midwife, a lactation specialist and a pediatric emergency room physician all in one room to answer all of our most burning questions.
Tickets for the event are just $15 + fees and 50% of ALL proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to local, mom run non-profit, Covered In Love. We are pleased to be able to support this organization that supports moms in their journey to find HOPE after miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant loss. It’s founders, Lisa Kane and Bonnie Braswell, both lost baby sons in 2011 and know firsthand the pain and emptiness that follow such a loss. Through prayers blankets, a website filled with information and personal stories, and a monthly support group, Covered in Love shares God’s love and the HOPE that He gives us as we walk this path together.
The first 100 attendees to register are guaranteed to take home a swag bag stuff full of goodies from sponsors like kiinde, Boogie Wipes, Babies ‘R Us, and local sponsor, Synergy Spa, who has included an extra special treat!
All attendees will get to take part in some amazing giveaways from top brands like Boppy, MAM, Beauty Counter, Renaissance North Hills Hotel, and local newborn and family photographer Little Stork Studios is even giving away a free session!
WakeMed will also be providing tours of their gorgeous new facility and Johnson Lexus has graciously offered the use of a vehicle for carseat demonstrations. This is an event not to be missed!
