5 Reasons You Won’t Want to Leave the Couch During Virtual Bloom

Bloom :: An Event for New and Expectant Moms is almost here! We’ve been busy planning a special evening for you – while you’re safe at home.

Here are just a few reasons you’ll want to invest this time for yourself from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10.

Empowering Speakers

Be inspired (no matter how tired or pregnant you are!) by the sister therapists Laura Probasco Johnson and Leah Probasco of New Strong. They will help you learn on to advocate for yourself by finding community and support as you travel on your motherhood journey.

Make Mom Friends, the Easy WayBloom Kansas City Moms Blog

We know it’s not easy to put yourself out there. Especially when you’re tired from pregnancy, baby life or toddler drama. But the only way we all get through this motherhood gig is with a strong community to lift us up. That’s the mission of Kansas City Mom Collective – to not only connect you to each other online but in meaningful relationships offline. Even if it’s just one morning, we hope you’ll leave feeling a little less alone in this journey.
