West MI Post Partum Support

Here in the Grand Rapids area, we have a phenomenal non-profit organization called Moms Bloom that lends its hand in helping post partum moms.

This is MomsBloom.

MomsBloom knows how exhausted and overwhelmed parents can feel after the birth of a baby. Today, with so many families geographically dispersed or away at work mothers (and fathers) often do not get the help they need. MomsBloom was born to bring volunteers and families together to provide physical and emotional support to any family with a newborn – free of chargeMomsBloom is the extended family for the twenty-first-century!

If you are currently pregnant  and almost due, or have an infant aged 0-3 months you can call Moms Bloom at 616.828.1021 to be partnered with an experienced volunteer to give you a helping hand through your new baby’s “newborn-hood”.

In-Home services may include:

  • Nonjudgmental support and companionship
  • Promotion of parent-infant bonding
  • Emotional and physical recovery from birth
  • Newborn care
  • Meal preparation and light household tasks
  • Connection to community resources
  • Infant feeding support
  • Care for siblings
  • Parent education
  • Soothing and coping skills

I personally know a few families that have taken advantage of this free program and it has helped immensely!

If you’re not at a time in life where you need something like this but want to get involved, you can also contact Moms Bloom to become a volunteer or donate to help them cover costs. (tax-deductible!)

West Michigan Link-Up

Natural Living Moms and Eat Local West Michigan will be hosting a weekly link-up every Thursday. So if you blog about local businesses, deals, etc, etc, please feel free to link up below!

*Linky closes one week from today. So if you have other posts coming up in your blog schedule you’d like to link, feel free!

But before you do, let’s cover the ground rules. Unfortunately link ups such as this are getting watered down with stagnant traffic. In order to make sure this doesn’t happen please make sure you:

  1. Link to a specific, recent post relevant to the West Michigan area. This can include things like reviews, general discussion, tips on buying locally, events, etc.
  2. Link not to your homepage, but directly to your post.
  3. Make sure to include a link to this post! Collaborating with bloggers is a two-way street, we’re showing links to your site, make sure you link to this post and let your readers know what it’s about. (or simply copy and paste this at the bottom of your post: What to find out more about what’s going on locally? This post is linked to the West Michigan Link-Up at Natural Living Moms, where you can see what everyone else is up to!)
  4. Please publish your post with the above mentioned link to NLM. So going back in every once in a while and adding it isn’t a major cause for concern, but y’all…….then the link to NLM never hits your subscribers.
  5. Not mandatory, but if you’re looking to help increase the traffic for us local bloggers, read the other posts and share then via social media and sites like stumble upon. That’s just good blog kharma that will come back ten fold. :-)

Enter away!
