The sixth annual Moms Like Me event hosted by Roots Family Collaborative will be held on Saturday, May 7th at The ELM in midtown Bozeman, as a celebration of all mothers in our community. Moms Like Me will feature four mothers sharing their honest experiences of motherhood, interwoven with engaging performances from our Mom Band, and a post-event social. The event is FREE and invites all mothers and those who celebrate them to attend.
In the spring of 2016 following a series of inspirational and tragic events that highlighted the need for maternal mental health support, a group of engaged mothers and professionals rallied to host the first ever Moms Like Me. In the last five years, Moms Like Me has evolved and become a well-loved, powerful, and community centered event for families in the greater Bozeman area to raise awareness about perinatal mental health, normalize the expectations of the perinatal period, and strengthen support networks for our growing community.
The time has always been now to celebrate mothers and through the dedication to this ever-evolving, annual event, along with on-going support groups and workshops for new families, to the yearly printing and distribution of the Roots Perinatal Resource Guide, local non-profit, Roots Family Collaborative has stepped in to fill a glaring void by becoming the trusted connection point for both families and providers from pregnancy through early parenthood.
All members of the community are encouraged to join Roots Family Collaborative at Moms Like Me to lift up and celebrate mothers at this unique and powerful event, which creates the space to be present and witness the power of connection through storytelling and song. Bring along a friend, find those fun shoes that have been collecting dust under all the sweatpants, and let Roots celebrate you for the evening.
