BLOOM: A CELEBRATION OF MOTHERHOOD
Miami Mom Collective is proud to announce Bloom 2020: A Celebration of Motherhood sponsored by Mercy Hospital & Dr. Bob Pediatric Dentist.
Bloom 2020 is now VIRTUAL!
As a trusted community resource, we have made the difficult decision to transition this event to a VIRTUAL PLATFORM in accordance with the CDC guidelines to avoid large gatherings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We do not take this decision lightly and we hope you will make plans to join us from the comfort of your home on September 29th!
The Event typically brings together 150+ parents giving them the opportunity to interact with mom and baby-centered businesses, and attend an expert panel focusing on answering their questions for the transition into this new stage in life.
The exciting news: this year the event is going VIRTUAL! Enjoy Bloom 2020 from the comfort of your home! Check out last year’s Event Recap!
Bloom is a national event with City Mom Collective happening in 40+ different cities featuring partners on both a local and national level.
The week long celebration includes:
- Social Media Giveaways,
- Local Business Features,
- General Admission Swag Bag AND a VIP Swag Bag!
The celebration culminates with a *live* Virtual Celebration including:
- Expert Panel (OBGYN, NICU Specialist, Sleep Consultant, Pediatric Dentist, etc…)
