Resources, Education, and Support
Moms in Bloom was formed to fill a need in Solano County by giving support to expectant families and families with small children. We felt that there was not enough early parenting education for expectant parents and definitely not enough early postpartum and breastfeeding support. So we decided it was time to do something about it and get something started.
We formed in February of 2007, incorporated in March of 2007, and received our IRS determination letter in May of 2008. We are busy organizing our 2nd annual fundraising event and hope to raise enough money to open a local pregnancy and early parenting resource center in 2009.
