7,500 Expecting and New Moms Expected at BLOOM


BLOOM is a nation-wide event hosted by City Moms Blog Network

April 6, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. Across 57 cities in 29 states, new and expecting moms will experience an annual event like none other in their local community. Throughout April and May 2019, BLOOM, presented by City Moms Blog Network, will connect these moms to resources and information about pregnancy and motherhood.

“One of our primary goals of this network is to connect moms at the local level,” said Stephanie Flies, mom of three and City Moms Blog Network founder and director. “We want moms to come out from behind their computer screen and shake hands with other women in the same life stage. Relationships are vital to mothers and we are so excited to provide this opportunity for connection.”

Moms who attend a local BLOOM event will learn about area resources, receive swag from City Moms Blog Network local and national partners, and connect with other moms. In 2018, more than 6,000 women attended BLOOM events in 46 cities.

City Moms Blog Network is a fast-growing national network of parenting resource websites. Each of the nearly 100 sites nationwide are owned and operated by a local mom who recruits more local moms to contribute content and offer expertise in all topics associated with motherhood. All City Moms Blog Network site owners are connected to a network of like-minded entrepreneurs running sites across the country. This community of moms, all dedicated to connecting moms in their own cities, work together to make sure each site is successful.

New and expecting mothers must register online prior to the event through their local City Moms Blog Network site. From Albuquerque to Pittsburgh and Orland to San Francisco, participating cities with details of their events, can be found here.
