Baton Rouge, La. – Whether you’re expecting, have recently welcomed a baby or are planning to expand your family, Red Stick Moms Blog and Baton Rouge General invite you to attend the third annual Bloom event celebrating motherhood and pregnancy. This year’s brunch will be held Saturday, April 21 at 10 a.m. on BRG’s Bluebonnet campus.

“The overarching mission of Red Stick Moms Blog is to connect local moms both online and off,” said Ashley Angelico, co-owner of Red Stick Moms Blog. “One way we do this is to create meaningful experiences in person, like Bloom, for women to connect with other moms in their immediate community."

Bloom will feature a full brunch catered by BRG, Smallcakes Baton Rouge and Truly Southern Pretzel Crunch. Swag bags will feature products from more than 30 companies, including Bakery on Main, Bug Soother, fridababy, Kizingo Kids, Maidenform, Mam, Matilda Jane Clothing, Parasol, Shea Moisture, Smartypants Vitamins and Travel Tray.

In addition, the event will feature networking, educational booths and resources to help make motherhood easier – including prenatal and postpartum support. Participants will also have a chance to win a free crib and other door prizes, meet BRG’s OB-GYNs, enjoy crafts sponsored by Bedtime Bliss, and tour BRG’s Birth Center.

“As OB-GYNs, we’re honored to be there for some of the most memorable moments of a woman’s life. But, we’re also moms, so we understand how emotional and overwhelming pregnancy and motherhood can be,” says Dr. Candee Moore with Baton Rouge General Physicians. “That’s why our team works with organizations like Red Stick Moms Blog – to connect new moms with resources, information, and each other.”

Tickets are available online. Guests can choose from general admission tickets ($30) or limited VIP “Everything is Mama” tickets ($50). Learn more about the BRG Birth Center’s resources and team of experts and take a virtual tour by visiting
