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

Enter the raffle and participate in the silent auction for your chance to bring home great prizes!

You may also enjoy refreshments available at the theatre concession stand. (alcoholic beverages available with a theatre membership)

Special Deliveries: Celebrity Mothers Talk Straight on Birth features celebrity moms Laila Ali, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, Alyson Hannigan, Melissa Joan Hart, Kellie Martin,  Alanis Morissette, Christy Turlington-Burns, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley.

Special Deliveries is a collection of intimate birth stories from a diverse group of mothers. Whether they chose to deliver at a hospital, home, or birth center, these heartfelt and humorous testimonies speak to the lasting power of the birth experience.
