Bloom 2020:: An Event for New and Expecting Moms

We are so grateful for our community partners who help Duluth Mom make events like this possible for our moms!
Virtual Bloom

Duluth Mom is thrilled to announce that we are bringing Bloom back to our city for the 4th year in a row as a VIRTUAL event!

This exclusive event is geared towards moms, dads, and grandparents who are planning to grow their family, currently expecting, in their first year of motherhood, or fostering/adopting little ones.

We are excited to be partnering with City Mom Collective and 35 of our other sister sites to bring local communities this event with an estimated attendance of over 6,000+ moms across the US!

This event is geared towards moms who are currently expecting a baby, had a baby within the last year, foster moms of infants, or are planning on growing their family soon through birth or adoption. Whether it’s your first baby or third, you are sure to learn something new at BLOOM! We will provide moms with an evening of educational resources, panel discussion, online shopping and connection between moms and great local resources.

A huge thank you to our Sponsors – Clyde Iron Works and St. Luke’s for providing amazing information and content for our expecting moms.
