Bloom is a compassionate, supportive company aimed at offering services to help moms feel their best postpartum. We believe that when moms feel better, families are healthier, which leads to stronger communities. We work hard to build awareness about the positive benefits of safe placenta encapsulation and respect all educated opinions. We believe in a multi-faceted postpartum care approach which may include resources for baby care, self-care, nutrition, exercise, and emotional support. We are non-judgmental and want mothers to feel supported in their choices, including how and where they give birth and how they choose to feed their baby. We know the best way for a mother to have birth satisfaction is to make sure she is making informed decisions about what is best for HERself, HER baby, and HER family.
Our purpose at Bloom is to help new and expecting mothers' through the changes they are experiencing during pregnancy and postpartum. The following video explains more behind our purpose and what we can do to help you.
