Last Saturday, Pittsburgh Moms Blog held its Second Annual Bloom at Allegheny Health Network, Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion. The Pittsburgh Moms Blog team, along with many community leaders, several local businesses, and passionate medical professionals filled the Pavilion for a joy-filled celebration of all things motherhood at Bloom Pittsburgh 2018!
We sipped coffee and treated ourselves with donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts, enjoyed delicious cheese, sandwich wraps, and healthy vegetables from Whole Foods Market, and devoured delicious chicken nuggets and fruit from Chick-fil-A.
When new and expectant moms arrived at the event, they were able to shop and visit with our all amazing table sponsors and medical professionals. We had everything from photographers to travel agencies to early intervention providers to Allegheny County Parks and Allegheny County Libraries to chair and table massages to baby clothing to pediatric services to breastfeeding support on hand for the moms who attended.
On top of all that goodness, moms had fun putting raffle tickets in the prize of their choice for a chance to win more 35 giveaways!
After eating, getting pampered, and visiting with our amazing table sponsors, Pittsburgh-area moms gathered in the Pavilion’s meeting space to listen to our question and answer session with our panel of experts.
A huge thank you to all of our incredible speakers for sharing their expertise and experience with our moms. Their wisdom, advice, and encouragement were truly appreciated by the 100+ moms in attendance. Thank you for giving up your Saturday afternoon to spend time discussing topics like pregnancy, chiropractic, dentistry, pediatrics, feeding, parenting, and birthing choices.

While Bloom originally started out as a comprehensive resource for new and expectant moms, this show grew to include local businesses, resources and prizes that all families and mothers need from all over the various Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Even though some moms in attendance were expecting their second, third, fourth, or fifth child, we heard mothers say, “wow, I never knew that existed in Pittsburgh.”
