Launched in 2015 as an online community for modern moms, expecting mothers, and hopeful soon-to-be mamas, Baby Chick, named after Nina -- The Baby Chick®, is a pregnancy and motherhood resource for the modern mom. We empower and educate women and mothers by giving them evidence based information so that they can make informed decisions for themselves and their family.

Nina has personally supported hundreds of families during their pregnancies, at their births, when they bring their babies home and beyond. Over the years she recognized that many women were not receiving important information to help them feel empowered and more confident during these monumental stages of life. Because of this Nina created Baby Chick where women could receive just that--education, inspiration and a smile. She believes in celebrating this time in a woman’s life and supporting each mother through her pregnancy, birth and parenting journey.

Nina and her team of writers empower and educate women and mothers by giving them helpful information so that they can make informed decisions for themselves and their family. They touch on topics that every mother can related to: from pregnancy tips, birth information, and postpartum support to parenting advice, product knowledge and so much more.

In the past, Baby Chick has been featured on sites like Red Tricycle, Buzzfeed, Rank & Style, New Mommy Media, Mother.ly and more, and we continue to reach a large, global audience. If you feel like Baby Chick is what you've been looking for to support you during this crazy, beautiful ride called motherhood, then we’d love to be your new go-to website and friend.

Want to get the 411 on all things motherhood? You can sign up for our newsletter to get helpful tips & tricks, inspiration, and information during each stage of parenthood. You can also follow us on Facebook & Instagram, which are quickly becoming our second and third homes. Stay awhile, won’t you? We'd love for you to join us in this movement of empowering the modern mom and celebrating motherhood and every woman everywhere.
