About Us

BCB was started in 2010 by a mom-to-be in Chicago needing a place to meet and connect with other expectant moms.

The birth story

BCB'S Birthday: March 3, 2010

As her friends began to have babies, our founder, Lindsay Pinchuk, realized that moms and moms-to-be in Chicago needed a place to meet and connect with one another. When Lindsay was just eight weeks pregnant with her first baby, she announced Bump Club’s very first event: a pre-natal workout with The Dailey Method Chicago.

Bump Club and Beyond® was born.

It began in The Windy City, but Bump Club and Beyond® is now the largest social event company the country, hosting events in over twenty major markets. Bump Club and Beyond produces dozens of premier events each month, reaching thousands of moms, moms-to-be and their families across the country. BCB has something for every woman currently experiencing pregnancy and beyond.

Bump Club and Beyond’s mission is to connect the moms and moms-to-be with the best products, resources, experts and most importantly, with each other. BCB features the top experts in their field and partners with the most well-known national brands including Nordstrom, The Land of Nod, Target, Whole Foods, ULTA Beauty, Equinox Fitness Clubs and more. Additionally, Gearapalooza: The Ultimate Baby Gear and Registry event is BCB’s national tour bringing the best baby gear and expertise from The BabyGuyNYC to fifteen cities across the country each year.

Bump Club and Beyond was named BEST OF CHICAGO by Chicago Magazine in 2011, and BCB founder, Lindsay Pinchuk, was named among the Best Entrepreneurs in 2014 by Crain’s Chicago Business. In 2015 BCB launched it’s nationally award-winning publication, Hey Baby!, a collaboration in Chicago with Chicago Parent magazine. Currently BCB connects with over 90,000 fans on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Bump Club and Beyond is honored to have touched the lives of so many moms and moms-to-be in Chicago and Austin. Here is what they are saying about their experiences with BCB:

Bump Club has been an amazing network for me from the moment I found out I was pregnant. As a first time mom, I had a lot to learn. The monthly dinners for Moms-to-Be taught me more than any book or website could. In those first few months with an extremely colicy baby, I often found myself looking back at my notes from these dinners. I am so grateful for the knowledge and tools Bump Club has provided me with.

I was taking a prenatal water aerobics class through Northwestern Memorial when I met my first friend who was pregnant. But even though we met there, I would like to say that Bumb Club contributed to the majority of the friends that I have made (as a mom/mom-to-be). My friend in my water aerobics class

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the club. It wasn't around my first time, and what a difference it has made in my pregnancy. With a 3 year old, and a full time job, the events give me a minute to sit back and relax and enjoy being pregnant with this baby.

I’d like to say thank you so much for the dinner last night. I came home and went over all my notes with my husband and he was amazed at the amount of info provided. I feel much more informed and will be planning on attending the Feb and March dinners as well as it was a great use of time.

Cheri H - Chicago, IL

Last night was my first Bump Club event, and I just have to say that I could not be happier that I attended. I called my husband right after the dinner, and gushed for a bit longer than he probably wanted to listen about how wonderful and well-run the whole event was. I cannot say enough good things – from the excellent location, the FANTASTIC speakers, the gift bag, and most of all meeting other mothers-to-be. I was nervous to attend, not knowing what to expect, but I left feeling WAY more knowledgeable than when I arrived, and so excited for the next Bump Club event!
