VIRTUAL Bloom: An Event for New and Expecting Moms in Milwaukee | Sept 24, 2020


BLOOM :: An Event for New and Expecting Moms

Disclosure :: Our Bloom Event for New and Expecting Moms is sponsored by Summit Credit Union and Ascension, supported by The Corners of Brookfield and The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts. We can’t make this event fabulous without their support. It’s always a pleasure to plan events alongside professional and gracious hosts. 

Event Now VIRTUAL due to COVID-19

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 the COVID-19 virus. 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 24th! 


We are thrilled to present Bloom: An Event for New & Expecting Moms taking place on VIRTUALLY on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 10 am to 9 pm, with the LIVE portion beginning at 5 pm.

Bloom is specifically for women who are currently expecting, adopting, fostering or who have become a parent to an infant in the past year.

Though originally scheduled as an in-person event, we have shifted this year’s event to a virtual experience to keep everyone as safe as possible while COVID-19 continues to be a threat, while you still get to enjoy a wonderful experience from the comfort of your home.

Put on your comfiest leggings and grab your favorite seat in the house because BLOOM 2020 is a full day of fun, still bursting at the seams with the elements that have made this event so popular in past years. Local experts, baby brands, swag and giveaways, surprises and delights. Bloom is specifically geared for parents who are currently expecting, adopting, fostering or who have become a mother in the past year.

Milwaukee Mom is known for producing high-quality events for Milwaukee area moms and families! We look forward to seeing you soon and please don’t hesitate with any questions.
