This presentation will
• Raise awareness of the many options available for childbirth in Grand Rapids
• Bring the community together in support of healthy birth and healthy families
• Raise funds for the local non-profit organization MomsBloom
MomsBloom was born to bring volunteers and families together to provide physical and emotional support to any
family with a newborn – free of charge.
MomsBloom provides three things: weekly assistance with whatever tasks or chores are most pressing; a connection to other parents and resources; and fact-based education that gives moms the confidence to make their own choices about child-rearing.
Stay after the film for a panel discussion about How to Optimize Your Birth with local birth professionals.
Meet local birth and family friendly vendors and see what they have to offer the community
