Make a difference by spending a few flexible hours each week helping a family and their baby in the comfort of their home.

"Spending time with this family is the highlight of my week. In giving a little of myself, I am receiving so much more in return!" - Lori, MomsBloom volunteer

Our volunteers provide non-judgmental and inclusive support by doing hands-on tasks and providing companionship to the parent(s).

You will spend just 2-4 hours once per week with a family for a 12 week commitment in the family’s home. Days and times per week are flexible with your schedule.

Check out our upcoming trainings in the sign up below and you can start your postpartum volunteer journey today!

MomsBloom has resumed in-home support to those that are able and willing to do so. We have established COVID-19 protocol with requirements and recommendations for all involved. We will only match volunteers and families that have aligning individual requirements.

*Childcare swap now available between MomsBloom volunteers! If childcare is a barrier to volunteering, worry no more - a MomsBloom volunteer may be interested in doing childcare swap with you while you support a MomsBloom family!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect families with newborns to passionate community members who provide quality, hands-on postpartum support.

Description

MomsBloom connects community volunteers with families of newborns to provide hands on and emotional support in the family's home. The support may include light housework, caring for baby so the parent(s) has time for self care, caring for siblings, meal preparations, adult companionship, etc.

We accept referrals from families that are expecting and up to three months of age. At this time, we provide services to families within the greater Grand Rapids area. At times, we are able to provide support for families of older babies (up to 12 months) and for families outside of the Grand Rapids area if volunteers are available.
