A maternity concierge or baby planner is someone who can help you plan and prepare for any and all aspects of preconception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenthood.
Think about a wedding planner and all they could do for you. They can help you find your dream dress, find a venue, plan the engagement party, help you plan the ceremony and reception, seating plans, hair/makeup/nail trials, finding a great photographer/videographer. That is how a baby planner works.
As a doula, childbirth educator, midwifery student and parent of 2 sweet children, I can help you plan for pregnancy, birth, postpartum period (babymoon) and parenthood.
