Pregnancy, birth, and motherhood are beautiful and rewarding in so many ways. However, there are also times when they can feel overwhelming, exhausting, and at times lonely. I’ve seen it as a doula and educator, and I’ve experienced it personally as a mother. That’s why at Baby Chick, we want you to feel like you have a friend, a professional, and a place to go to that will uplift you, educate you, and inspire you every step of the way. We’re here to remind you that you’re doing a great job and that you are not alone.

Now that you know more about me, we hope that we’ll see you more around our site and social pages! We love meeting our amazing community of mothers. 🙂
