Calling All New & Expectant Moms in Rochester, NY
Beyond the Bump has been bringing together new Rochester moms for four years, and our 2016 event is fast approaching! We’ll be back at the beautiful DoubleTree by Hilton Rochester on Jefferson Road on Saturday, April 16, 2016. from 10 am to 2 pm. If you’ve joined us in the past, you can expect more helpful demos, informative seminars, and valuable resources than ever. If you’re new to Beyond the Bump, you’re in for a treat! To get the most out of this day devoted to you, download our free event app where you can set up and save your perfect personalized itinerary.
It’s one day just for you.
When you’re a new mom (or about to be), it can be way too hard to find time for yourself. Beyond the Bump is a rare opportunity to spend a day investing in you. You’ll find ways to make your pregnancy more comfortable, your birth experience better, and life with your infant easier. Just as important as the resources you’ll find are the connections you’ll make. When we say BTB is a chance to “find your tribe,” we’re referring to the sense of community and connectedness that comes from spending time with women who understand what you’re going through.
Ann Douglas is back!
Our focus on education and information is one of the things that makes Beyond the Bump so valuable. This year, we’re over the moon to bring back best-selling author and parenting expert, Ann Douglas, whose packed seminars were the highlight of our 2013 event. Ann is among the world’s foremost experts on all things pregnancy and parenthood, and her numerous books, including the “Mother of All” series, have sold over half a million copies (in North America alone!). She’ll lead three seminars at our Rochester event: Your Top Ten Pregnancy- and Birth-Related Worries, The Truth About Newborns, and another that we’ll be announcing soon. Ann’s latest book is Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle the Highs, the Lows, and Everything in Between, and guests of Beyond the Bump will get to tap into all her expertise for help navigating their own motherhood journeys.
Resources Close to Home
We’re expanding into new cities, but Beyond the Bump was born in Rochester! For the uninitiated, Beyond the Bump is the ultimate local event for new and soon-to-be moms and their growing families. This one-day experience brings together local pediatricians, doulas, midwives, chiropractors, parenting experts, nonprofits, community groups, and Etsy-type vendors to help moms get prepared in all the right ways. There are seminars, chances to talk with medical professionals, demos, unique and innovative products, and self-care opportunities, all aimed at helping you get more joy out of your pregnancy, birth experience, and life as a new mom.
It pays to plan ahead.
There’s a lot to see and do in just a few hours, so a little planning goes a long way. To get the most value out of the event, RSVP on our Rochester Facebook Event page. That will keep you in the loop when we make important announcements.
