Recapping Nurture Fest 2024

Nurture Fest 24 CEP 2 scaled

The second annual Nurture Fest is now in the books! 2024 Nurture Fest was another delightful summer evening of beautiful light, delicious food and around 50 amazing breastmilk mamas! Such a fun time of connecting with other mamas, getting gorgeous photos taken, and learning about women focused service providers here in OKC.

I can hardly believe the amazing growth that has happened for Nurture Mamas. For a long time, I’ve had this vision for a breastfeeding photo event that supports mothers and shows them how amazing they are. Last year’s first Nurture Fest was amazing and then seeing the growth and support around 2024 brought me so much joy.

I really do love getting to celebrate women and letting these mamas know how amazing they are for the work they have put in to nourish their little ones.

You can read a bit more about the vision and heart behind this event over here. I am so excited to see the Nurture Mama OKC community grow. (Want to be a part? Join our Facebook Group for mamas here!)

I am also excited to see Nurture Fest keep growing and getting better in future years! The support of the event sponsors and the community excitement is invigorating me to continue to dream for this event.

I am so grateful for the incredible sponsors that made Nurture Fest 2024 a reality:
