BLOOM 2018 :: An Event for New and Expecting Moms

We couldn’t be happier that Bloom, a celebration of all things motherhood specifically designed for new moms and moms-to-be, is back at Raleigh Moms Blog for the 3rd year in a row! This popular event is a favorite for expecting Raleigh-area moms or those who are thinking of expanding their family. This is indeed a kid-free event, with the exception of young nurslings. It is rare that we as moms can get out and about on our own, and Bloom is all about taking a morning off and getting away from the routine for a celebration that’s all about YOU.

Raleigh Moms Blog is known for producing high-quality events for Raleigh area moms, families and children! We look forward to seeing your family soon and also encourage you to join the Facebook Event Page for additional fun updates!
