CUE THE CONFETTI.
We are Abbey + Hannah, two friends, mamas, and co-founders of Cheers, Mama!
Cheers, Mama! is a gathering place for celebrating the mama life - the good, the bad, and all the dirty diapers. We produce a weekly podcast and host local meetups, creating a community of women who encourage each other on this wild ride of parenthood.
We hope that Mom Prom is as much fun as it is uplifting and reminds you of the amazing mama that you are!
See you on the dance floor!

Parking is free, but we recommend carpooling to save space + the environment! …or rent a limo for the night!
New mamas, we have you covered with a comfy and private pumping room, complete with a fridge and other necessities (like, snacks…)!
DO I NEED TO BRING MONEY?
Food is on us. Alcohol is on you. Bring a credit card for shopping at pop-ups and grabbing a drink. Everyone gets a champagne ticket!

We have some awesome partners + sponsors who are providing really cool swag for Mom Prom! Instead of a one-size-fits-all, fill your own bag with the goodies you want!
