My MomsBloom volunteer was amazing. I contacted MomsBloom before my son was born as part of my postpartum depression prevention/management plan. They gathered enough information to pair me with the perfect volunteer. She was kind, helpful, and understanding. The birth of my son followed a previous pregnancy loss, and she helped me navigate through the huge range of emotions that followed. She also helped me fold laundry, and played with my daughter. She saved my sanity and helped keep me afloat. I miss her every time I do laundry! :)

I reached out to MomsBloom after having twins. It was the best thing I ever did. Not only did they send the perfect volunteer to help with the babies, but it was so great knowing that on Tuesday morning I would have someone here to listen and chat with me, feed a baby, and I usually made lunch for us. I am so thankful for all the work they do and can't wait until I have the time to volunteer and help changes somebodies day (I'll have 3 kids 17mo and under come Dec, so it might be a while ;)

I am currently dealing with postpartum depression and I can say I would be in much worse shape without Momsbloom. Many of the women I have spoke with have dealt with it themselves and it gives me great hope that this period will end in my life or at least get better! My volunteer has been great and I am also going to take a 8 week class offered by them. They have even given great support via phone when I was having difficult times. They have referred me to counselors, given me resources and made me feed like I am not alone in how I feel. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

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.

I am so happy I found out about Momsbloom! It is an amazing organization. I had twin girls born at the end of December 2011, and my wonderful volunteer started coming to my home 3 times a week for 2 hours in January. It was amazing! She would sit with my girls while I took a long, long shower (which I learned becomes a rare luxury once you have kids!). She would also help feed them, and it gave me a chance to have one-on-one time with each twin. She really helped me get through some long days during my maternity leave. I recommend Momsbloom to all pregnant women I know, and I can't wait to volunteer myself when my kids are older!

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!
