Each year since 2014 MommaPalooza has been held during the month of August in Celebration of Breastfeeding Awareness Month. We have grown considerably since that first event in 2014 & this year should be no exception!
Service vendors will offer pregnancy & birth programs, prenatal care & options. Also, cloth diapering, babywearing, breastfeeding & postpartum care.
Product vendors will offer pregnancy comfort options, breastpump info, teething options, baby & children's toys, clothing for babies, children & parents AND much more!
To become a vendor: MommaPalooza 2018 vendor application. Vendors will be chosen by relevance to our guests. Grassroots business will be considered first. You will receive an approval email if approved.
We will have Pickles The Clown again this year for the kids. She will make balloon aniamles & do some "Clowning Around".
This event is hosted by Lisa Kehoe IBCLC owner of Oh Baby Mine Lactation Services. Any questions should be directed to Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please join our Facebook page for details about this practice at www.facebook.com/oh.baby.mine.
This year, being our 5th Anniversary we plan to donate some of the proceeds of the silent auction to Haven Network. The Haven Network, Northern Illinois' perinatal hospice and bereavement center, provides companionship on the grief journey to families who are facing a terminal diagnosis of their pre-born or newborn baby. The Haven Network also supports those families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, SIDS and early infant death. The Haven strives to meet the needs of grieving families through caring, compassionate staff and volunteers.
The event is FREE but we ask that you make a minimum of $2 donation for Haven Network. This event is simple to share right from here, use the arrow in the upper left corner.
