MomsBloom was a seed that rose from the heartache of families who needed support. They have grown into an organization that proactively seeks families who find themselves struggling with the stresses of newborns and expanding famlilies. Their trainings are insightful, relevant, and focused on supporting the community. Their leaders are guided by their hearts. The community is blessed to have them.

My experience with Momsbloom has been great! The orientation process was very informative, they reviewed topics in detail about postpartum depression, breastfeeding techniques, referrals and resources and soothing techniques to name a few. I found this information very helpful in preparing myself to help a family as much as possible.
Momsbloom has always been very good about communicating between myself and the families, their dedication toward helping families is superb. My experience has been completely positive, I recommend this service to many people. I think it's Fabulous!

...in the new friendship I have with the family. I stay in contact with them regularly. They have someone they can trust for a babysitting need or just call to chat about how the children are doing. I also volunteer for another women's org and love to share about Momsbloom to the younger parenting population.

MomsBloom provides an important service to the community served by its volunteer doulas. I have watched the leadership grow this program from its grassroots beginnings and witnessed it thrive. I myself am the founder of a nonprofit, volunteer, community-based doula program, so I know what it takes. Doulas are an exceptional, evidence-based intervention that helps moms, babies, and families at a critical time.

As a Board Member of MomsBloom for the past two and a half years. I have witnessed the transformation of an idea to a thriving community resource that has benefitted families in Grand Rapids. MomsBloom is more than just a public awareness effort is is an organization that seeks to provide a holistic approach to families who are affected by Post Partum Depression.

As a homebirth midwife I work with families that prepare for, birth and recover in their homes. With the hard work of healing from birth and learning their new babies - many mothers feel overwhelmed with the other areas of life that sometimes get neglected during this transition. Moms Bloom steps in with well trained volunteers to lend a hand for these new mothers. They do everything from cook, clean, look after siblings, hold the babe so the mom can clean up or just sit and listen as the mom vocalizes her current experiences. What a great resource for connecting women in a time of such change that can many times be isolating. Especially in the lovel winer months here in our snowy state. I highly recommend MomsBloom to all of my clients and have had nothing but positive feedback regarding families experiences.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the ladies who have come to help me at just the right times during my adjustment to having my third little girl under 3 years old. I am very thankful for the organized and respectful ways they have established their organization. One time, one of our volunteers called to check in with me for substitute volunteering, and she called at just the right moment. The kids were arguing, my baby was crying full tilt, the laundry was all around my ankles and my husband and I had just had a "discussion" over the phone. I just broke down crying. Without being asked, she was at my door and relieved me to go shower. What a blessing!! Such great communication and caring for our family as well. I feel like they are very sensitive to me as a mother, not to step on my toes, but just to be there in any way I need help. It has been a life giving encouragement to me! I don't know what I would do without them right now as I am home long hours, while my husband works till late at night most nights now. The volunteers are warm and friendly, and always on time! I feel an amazing sense of community and maybe someday I will be able to return the favor and volunteer for them!

I had the wonderful help from Angie, Momsbloom Volunteer Coordinator, as my post partdum dula when Momsbloom was just an idea and not yet established. Back then I could see the passion Angie had to provide good care and support for women from all different walks of life. It is with determination and understanding of not only motherhood but womanhood that Momsbloom can flurish in times of adversity whether it be their own or their clients.

I am the mother of two sons who are 16 months apart. My oldest was still a baby when the baby was born. With Angie by my side I was able to get rest, shower, eat, spend time with each boys individually, and adjust to life as a mom with two kids. I have kept an eye on Momsbloom and although I dont use their services at this time I am inspired by all they have done in the community and the events they so bravely put on.

i am a nurse full time at the hospital, but i am compelled to volunteer for Moms Bloom also. I've seen the impact it has had on moms in our area who really need the help and I've also seen the impact on the volunteers who are able to give of themselves.
I have referred numerous moms from the
hospital who need the help and I have suggested to some of my friends and coworkers to volunteer. As a volunteer, we gain much more than we give! it is a wonderful organization and we are lucky to have it in Grand Rapids

I cannot put in to words how lucky we are to have MomsBloom in our community. I went to a fundraiser just because I wanted to support them but found myself on the receiving end months later when I realized that my growing anxiety was late-onset postpartum depression. MomsBloom was the caring, reassuring voice that listened, supported, and encouraged. I love them!
