Upcoming Events: Bump to Breast Fest


We are so pleased to congratulate the Arizona Breastfeeding Center on their one-year anniversary!! We are so grateful to have them as a resource for birthing families in the Phoenix area.

As they celebrate their first year in operation, they are hosting a fun family event tomorrow.  Read more about The Bump to Breast Fest in our virtual interview with the two founders of the Arizona Breastfeeding Center, Desiree Allison, IBCLC and Jennie Bever, IBCLC.

What is the inspiration behind the first Bump to Breast Fest?
The short answer is the wonderful community and families that have made The Arizona Breastfeeding Center possible.  
The Arizona Breastfeeding Center is a unique place, there are only a handful of similar centers across the United States, owned by IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) and are contracted with a few insurance companies.  When we came up with the idea for the Bump to Breast Fest, we truly wanted a way to give a heartfelt thanks for the many families that have come through our doors since we opened.  We believe it is critical to always give back to the community.  

What kind of information will be available to families?
We will have a mix of fun and educational classes. Car seat technicians will be onsite to check car seat installations.  Tours of the breastfeeding center will be available and you can meet our providers.  We will also have photographers on site to take free bump, family, or breastfeeding portraits.  
 
(Find the schedule of events at the end of today’s post)

Who will be joining you at the event?
 
Our vendors include:  
My Root Elements (website HERE)
Bubbles of Joy (website HERE
Nikki Brewer Ha Yoga Tempe (website HERE
Doula Table Meet & Greet
Babywearing International (website HERE
Arizona Breastfeeding Bag Project with Massage Envy offering chair massages (websites HERE and HERE
Car Seat Safety Technicians from Southwest Collision (website HERE)
 
There will be snacks and drinks for sale at the event, but no food truck. There are several restaurants nearby for families needing something heartier:  Smash Burger, Chipotle, Qdoba,  Whole Foods, Little India, and Pita Shack.  

Who is the event tailored for?
This event is tailored for pregnant women and breastfeeding moms, as well as those who support them and want to learn more about local resources and general information.   

Is there a "prime time" to visit?
I think it depends on what a person is interested in!  It is an open house style event, come and go as you please.  You do not need to be present to win the raffle items, but you do need to pick up within a week of the event at our office.  Our raffle items will be drawn at 12:45pm.

Is there any cost associated with the event?
The event is free to attend!  This includes entry, one free raffle ticket, classes, vendor courtyard, and photography sessions with Danielle Jensen and Beverly Houpt.  We have some lovely items for our raffles and additional tickets will be for sale ($1.00/ticket).  Items included in the drawings are:  2 Limerick PJ's Comfort hospital grade breast pumps, Brestfriend Twin Pillow, Breastfeeding Classes, Custom mother/baby hand and footprint cast, Membership to Babywearing International of Phoenix, Cloth diapers, Gift basket from Bubbles of Joy, Gift from My Root Elements, Prize package from Brilliant Breastfeeding including a pumping bra, nursing shirt and bamboobies nursing pads and last but not least a lovely Tula baby Carrier!

Krystyna's note - we also dropped off an SPB prize package to the ladies this morning...this is our contribution to the raffle:
Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes offered in Arizona: Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Payson
  
Some vendors may also have items for sale or raffle tickets for fundraisers.

What do you hope families will gain from attending your event?
We hope families feel thoroughly spoiled by coming to the event, enjoying the classes, having their picture taken, and mingling in the courtyard!  We hope they feel a sense of community and the gratitude we have for them supporting the Arizona Breastfeeding Center.  If they have a little fun and learn something new along the way, all the better.
