Questions and Answers about Bloom
1. Who is Bloom for?
Bloom is for any new mom, expecting mom, or any mom needing some encouragement and a fun morning out. There is so much information out there about labor, delivery, raising a healthy child, breastfeeding, etc., and the four breakout session speakers as well as our community resource tables are equipped to guide you through that information and be a system of support for you. Come to learn, grow, and make new friends.

3. Why are you offering a discount for multiple-ticket buyers?
In years past during our Bloom event we have had many people mention they weren’t comfortable coming to an event alone, so offering a $5 discount on each ticket when two or more tickets are purchased will allow our guests to bring a friend (or five) and everyone gets a discount. We are excited for Bloom to be a place to not only bring your current friends but to make new ones! When purchasing multiple tickets, go to the option that says group tickets!
4. What details do I need to know?
This year’s Bloom event will be held at First Family Church at 317 SE Magazine Road in Ankeny on Saturday, September 19 from 9:00 a.m. to noon! First Famliy Church has a beautiful new conference area that will be just perfect for our event. Print out your ticket confirmation or have it ready on your phone when you arrive to get signed in.
5. How can I get a free massage?
We will have three amazing massage therapists (read more here) available to give 15-minute massages to our first 30 ticket holders. If you are one of them, you will receive that information at the sign-in table upon arrival.
6. Why should I come to Bloom?
It truly takes a village to raise children, and here at Des Moines Moms Blog we want to link arms with you in motherhood. This event will leave you feeling supported, encouraged, and more connected to resources here in Des Moines. We have four breakout sessions: you will choose three to hear that day and resources will be available for the other one. All four speakers are well known in this community and truly want to be a resource for mamas. From all things labor and delivery to questions to ask a potential pediatrician, these experts will be very informative! We will have community resource tables, giveaways, swag bags, food from Chick-fil-A, and MUCH MORE. Read the full post on Bloom here.
