The First Annual Bloom Richmond :: An Event Re-cap


RVA Women in Full Bloom ::
Richmond’s First Annual Event for New & Expecting Mothers

Last Saturday, the Richmond Moms Blog team, along with many community leaders, local businesses, and passionate medical professionals filled the beautiful new lobby of the Women’s Hospital at Henrico Doctors’ for a joy-filled celebration of all things motherhood at Bloom Richmond 2017!

We sipped delicious craft mocktails mixed up by Shannon Milligan of RVA Home Team, enjoyed delicious food from Support Suppers, and devoured classic Rainbow Cookies from Ukrops.

When RVA moms arrived at the event, they were able to shop and visit with our all amazing table sponsors and medical professionals from the hospital. We had everything from newborn photographers to chair massages to baby clothing to pediatric services to breastfeeding support on hand for the moms who attended. And we’ve got some great news! We put together Your Guide to Bloom Richmond 2017 so that you can connect with the RVA businesses and providers that made the event possible! 

On top of all that goodness, moms had fun putting raffle tickets in the mason jar of their choice for a chance to win more than $3000 in giveaways!

It was a beautiful day. THANK YOU to everyone who participated!

After eating, getting pampered, and visiting with our amazing table sponsors, RVA moms gathered in the main hospital lobby to have a discussion with our panel of experts.

A huge thank you to Sarah Bloom for moderating our panel and to the all incredible panelists for sharing their expertise and experience with our moms. Their wisdom, advice, and encouragement were truly appreciated by the 75+ moms in attendance at our first annual Bloom Richmond event.

Thank you for giving up your Saturday morning to spend time discussing topics like pregnancy, postpartum mental health, feeding, parenting, and birthing choices.
