I’m beyond thrilled to introduce you to some of our amazing sponsors. These local business owners are truly wonderful and you’ll fall in love with the service they provide to our community.

 Without Carly from The Dailey Method we wouldn’t have a beautiful space to host this event at. Not only will you fall in love with her extremely adorable studio but her personality is incredibly contagious. This spa-like studio is located in Birmingham place and features a large fitness studio, shower facilities, free parking, childcare {we love this}, and a wide variety of athletic and boutique inspired apparel. For one-hour you’ll combine ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises. You’ll walk away feeling empowered to be the best version of yourself.

 Dr. Natalie, owner of Essential Family Chiropractic has a passion for helping others reach their potential through pure, hands-on chiropractic care. She has the best interest of every patient that walks through her door. She is a wealth of knowledge and can’t wait to share her love of natural chiropractics with you. She is going to share with you ways you can keep you immune system healthy by eliminating as much chemical, physical and emotional stress as possible and through chiropractic adapting to what stress we can’t eliminate.

 Have you ever walked into a children’s store and wanted every item they sell on a continuous wishlist?! I’m here to tell you that you will completely fall in love with Elephant Ears, a family owned and operated children’s store in the {heart} of Ann Arbor’s historic Kerrytown District. You will walk into their store and instantly feel like part of their family. The staff is friendly and informative. They have onsite Child Passenger Safety Technicians, Babywearing Experts, and a Lactation consultant eagerly waiting to assist you with any questions you may have along your parenting journey. Are you ready to be blown away by their charming store and handpicked products?

 As a new parent or a mom of many years you are constantly looking for a place that offers a variety of opportunities not only for your children but also for yourself. We are so honored to have Nature’s Playhouse sponsoring our very first event. This all-natural play and wellness center will help you slip back into play experiences of earlier generations when imagination and creativity were everything. New parents can take advantage of support groups addressing breastfeeding, postpartum issues, and babywearing, classes in natural childbirth, yoga, art, holistic healing and much more. Nature’s Playhouse strives to grow happy and healthy families through a community of resources. An abundance of thanks to Michelle and Lisa {owners of Nature’s Playhouse} for continuing to be moms on a mission.

 Here at Detroit Moms Blog we are so mindful and conscious of what we put into our bodies as well as our children’s {but we’re human, we still splurge once in and while}. We are so excited to have Christina {owner} of Ori Kami Organics as one of our sponsors. She strives to take the purest route in life by making handmade organic body care products with the highest quality, freshest ingredients on the market. Look for her at Rustbelt Market or by visiting her Etsy shop. You’ll quickly become obsessed with her lotions, lip balms, salves, bath teas and body oils.
