Bump Club and Beyond is the first and only social event company in Chicago connecting moms and moms-to-be with one another through our many events across the city. Anyone can come to any of our events, simply click through above to sign up! Our growing list of signature events include:

Beautiful Bellies and Beyond Fitness Series at lululemon:
Once a month we host our Beautiful Bellies Pre-Natal fitness series at lululemon Michigan Avenue and our Beyond the Belly Moms fitness series at lululemon Rush Street. We partner with many different workout studios from across the city to bring our attendees the best options for pre-natal fitness and for getting back in shape after pregnancy. This event is free to attend. Not only is this a great place for moms and moms-to-be to meet one another, but everyone gets a light breakfast following the workout and often some great surprises from our many partners.


Expectant Mom Dinner Series: Once a month our moms-to-be gather for our dinner and speaker series with our many Resident Experts. The goal of these dinners is to connect our moms-to-be to be with one another, while at the same time preparing them for the arrival of baby by covering topics that are important to them. Each dinner is capped off by incredible giveaways from our sponsors. Moms-to-be always go home with an incredible gift bag or big ticket item. The series covers topics including:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Embracing your new role as a mom and dealing with the emotional changes
  • Sleep Safety
  • Pediatrician Panel
  • Registry and Baby Gear
  • and more!

  • Mom Brunch Series: Once a month our moms gather for brunch on a Sunday and are welcome to bring their babies—it is great practice for getting out with the little one as no one cares about crying! Our brunches are also accompanied by a speaker, class, or project that they can do with their baby. Each brunch is capped off by incredible giveaways and our moms always go home with a gift bag filled with goodies to make their lives as mom a bit easier. Past brunches and topics have included:

  • Nutrition: From the bottle to solids and everything in between.
  • Healthy Sleep Tips
  • Childproofing
  • Tips and Tricks to Being a Mom in the City with our Mom Blogger Panel
  • Living Green(er) Expert Panel
  • and more!

  • Maternity Moxie Shopping Extravaganza: Every other month Bump Club and Beyond partners with one of our favorite maternity boutiques for a night of discounted shopping! This night out for moms-to-be is a fun way to meet other expectant moms, while helping each other embrace your bellies and bump up your maternity style. Appetizers, desserts and mock-tails are served and as always, we send many moms-to-be home with big ticket prizes. Everyone goes home with an incredible gift bag!


    Bump Club and Beyond University (BCBU): No one said that parenting was easy! BCBU is our way of helping our moms and moms-to-be navigate their role as a parent by tackling the toughest topics through an in-depth seminar format. BCBU events will be open to all parents and will start with a casual dinner followed by a more structured discussion. This includes a formal presentation and take-away packet on one of many topics. Slated for the fall of 2011:

  • The ABCs and 123s of the Pre-School Process
  • Childcare 101: Our expert panel will present all of your options for childcare and how to find it including nannies, babysitters, night nurses, au pairs, daycare and more.
  • with much more to come in 2012!

  • Baby Food Made Easy presented by Whole Foods: Three times a year Bump Club and Beyond partners with Whole Foods Market for our baby Food Made Easy class series with our Resident Chef and Wellness Expert, Amanda Skrip. These classes are designed to not only show you how to prepare food, but also how to introduce it, in what order, and also to give you ideas for what to feed your baby as they move through various stages of eating.


    SPECIAL EVENTS:
    In addition to our regular schedule, Bump Club and Beyond hosts MANY special events with various partners. Check our schedule as we will continue to bring you the best nights out, shopping events, educational seminars, speakers and more.
