blooma - maternity wellness in Minneapolis


I was just checking in with my friends blog 'Pretty Mommy' and in a compilation of things that she wrote about her experience with having a baby - which she so sweetly calls: letter to new mamas she talks about a wonderful place in Minneapolis (yes we Minnesotans look out for each other!) called Blooma. Blooma is a wellness center that offers prenatal and postnatal yoga, wellness and education for the new parent and expecting parent. I LOVE THE SOUND OF THIS PLACE!! how wonderful and what a great idea!


I wanted to write about Blooma to tell you all about them because I think that this would be such an empowering place when you about to have a baby. It's so great to have a place to get together with other pregnant women or just after you have your baby for yoga, you will probably find your friends for life here... It's great to be able to ask questions and talk to other parents in a similar situation and if you are searching out a place like this you can imagine that everyone at Blooma has a healthy and supportive approach to breastfeeding, exercise and eating which all go hand in hand with having a new baby.

I would also suggest that if you don't have one in your town... maybe this is a good opportunity to open something like this in YOUR town??!! talk to he women behind Blooma and I am sure that there is a lot of love and support there!

I've read about Blooma and looked at their website on and off for a year or more. Blooma is definitely a very cool, supportive and nurturing yoga+ center for new moms to make friends and be present with mothering, but there are many Prenatal and Mommy & Baby yoga classes and New Moms groups in yoga studios, Y's, gyms, libraries and such everywhere, which supply the same nurturing and friendly centering space for moms to gather; maybe the teachers and moms behind the classes don't have the money or backing to be a whole center, but they are genuine places to meet and retreat, if even for only and hour a week. And friends can be made for life... That's where I first met you Carina!! and at our neighborhood Alternative Food Cooperative. Rebecca
