I have provided legal services for MomsBloom since they were formed in 2007. This is a tremendous organization that has grown remarkably, both in scope and in reputation, over the past five years. MomsBloom provides postpartum support to over 200 West Michigan families each year. MomsBloom works very hard to keep its overhead costs low so that every dollar donated provides the maximum amout of support for its services. I am very proud to be a supporter of this organization.

I have been volunteering with MomsBloom since 2008. They work very hard making sure that volunteers and families are a good fit. They are also flexible in allowing me to decide the amount of time I am able to give. I have also had the chance to grow in my leadership skills through volunteering with several events and projects.

MomsBloom makes a positive impact by helping families through the challenging transition after a baby is born. I loved a quote I heard recently. Another volunteer said that she was introduced to the father of the baby. The mother said, "Honey, meet Leslie, she's the reason I'm blooming".

I am the Volunteer Coordinator of MomsBloom and I am also a volunteer as well. I am truly moved to see women reaching out and accepting the help they need. It is rewarding to see a mom gain confidence and feel empowered in her new role. I feel lucky to be a part of an organization that strives to bring people together, support families, and strengthen our community.

MomsBloom is about families starting out strong. Our volunteers reach out to young families at a time when they need it most -the arrival of a newborn baby. Whether a family is living geographically far from extended family members, facing the challenges of post partum depression, raising multiple children while juggling jobs, managing a child with special health concerns, or recovering from the stresses of chilbirth, MomsBloom volunteers bring a set of loving hands and an open heart to supporting families during those critical weeks of adjustment when baby first arrives home. Week after week, we hear new moms talk about the difference their volunteer has made in their lives - often developing friendships that last beyond their three month period of volunteer support. And the benefits extend just as profoundly to those who volunteer. Caring mothers, grandmothers, and even college women experience the joy of offering both emotional and hands on help to a new mother and they get to share in witnessing a mother's gaining confidence and balance in her new parenting role. Strong families are the foundation of a strong community and MomsBloom helps build those strong families one volunteer at a time.

MomsBloom begins with a simple premise: young families bringing home a newborn baby are often overwhelmed by fatigue, isolation and a sense of needing extra hands-on support. When extended family is not available to offer such support, MomsBloom matches families with volunteer Moms (and sometimes Dads) from the community who want to help families get a strong start with their new one. Volunteers are often mothers or grandmothers whose families are grown and gone and they have great experience and heart to offer to a new mom. The result is profound. Our new moms report an immediate sense of renewed optimism, confidence and energy with the help of their volunteer visitor who comes for a few hours each week to hold baby while mom gets a much needed nap, or help with light chores to ease the burden on mom, or simply offer an understanding ear while mom describes the transition she is experiencing. And volunteers feel they've made an important difference in the life of a family by helping them build a strong foundation for that family's future. Everybody wins.

I love MomsBloom! I learned about this organization through my current role with the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan. With most of my family living 5 or more hours away from me, I only wish I had known about MomsBloom when my kids where babies! I love volunteering for this organization, and could not possibly say enough positive about the staff! Thank you so much for all of your dedication and hard work for new families!

I am a volunteer and have had first hand experiences of how this organization can reach families at a very vulnerable time and make a real impact. Whether it involves holding the newborn so a Mom can take a nap, helping to entertain older children, or just offering some social interaction, these small actions can help lift up new parents.

I am a volunteer to me this origination is wonderful. The help that is provided to the community is unmatched. New parents can feel so isolated. This helps to break that feeling. I wish the program way around when my children were born!

This is one of the most kind nonprofit charities. Connecting with moms after the birth of their child really helps to get their feet grounded and make a connection with people other than immediate family.

MomsBloom helped me so much as a new mother. The volunteer who came into my home once a week for six weeks allowed me time to take a shower, clean up a little and have some adult company. She also assisted me with breastfeeding. When I needed further breastfeeding support, MomsBloom sent another volunteer my way for a visit that gave me the confidence to keep going with it. I am expecting my second child very soon and MomsBloom will be helping me again. I am so thankful that this organization exists as my husband and I don't have friends or family around to help during this time and he works late hours.

I am currently receiving services from Momsbloom. I have a volunteer helping me with my newborn. I can't rave enough about the organization. When I was having trouble with breastfeeding, I was also able to have help from a lactation volunteer.

the last eight weeks as a new mom. I have a volunteer who helps me two days a week for two hours a day.

Can't think of any but do like the idea of creating an online community as they are planning to do.
