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, I 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 a little more about me, I hope that I’ll see you more around our site and social pages! I love meeting our amazing community of mothers. 🙂 Welcome to our sisterhood of motherhood here at Baby Chick!
