Moms Bloom (click for more info)

Babies are often referred to as "bundles of joy" - but caring for a newborn is also a very demanding job! Parents need a lot of help during that exhausting postpartum stage, when stress tends to run high and sleep levels run low. MomsBloom is a nonprofit stepping up to meet the need for postpartum support in West Michigan by sending trained volunteers to the homes of families with newborns that need help. Volunteers do things like hold babies while mom gets a nap or shower, or even help with dishes, laundry, and emotional support. Just a few hours of service goes a long way in helping parents gain confidence and become successful. For information on volunteering or signing up to receive services, visit moms bloom dot org
