Hey, I’m Nina, The Baby Chick!® As the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Baby Chick®, I am beyond thrilled to be on this adventure with all of you! I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little about me, my passions, my experience, and what led me to create Baby Chick.
My Background and Experience
After receiving my degree from the University of Texas at Austin, I was in the working world doing sales for a little while. However, I quickly recognized that what I was doing and selling wasn’t my true passion, and I needed to focus on what made me happy. This meant focusing on supporting and caring for others, particularly women and children.
Since then, I have helped hundreds of mothers throughout their pregnancies, births, and postpartum journeys. I have assisted over 300 mothers during their labors and births at hospitals, birth centers, and home births. In addition, I have helped over 700 families as a baby planner, postpartum doula, massage therapist, educator (childbirth classes, newborn care classes, infant massage classes), and more. I have had the privilege of helping all these families around the greater Houston, Texas, area with these services over the past 12 years. Supporting families has been one of my biggest joys and greatest accomplishments in my life.
Once I started this career path, people in the area began to know me and say, “I’ve heard of you. You’re that baby chick who works with pregnant moms.” The nickname stuck, so people affectionately refer to me as “The Baby Chick®.” This inspired us to name our business after my sweet moniker. 🙂
Why I Started Baby Chick®
With the knowledge and experience I gained over the years supporting women and families, I wanted not only to be able to inspire, educate, and uplift mothers in my area but also do just that for mothers everywhere. I recognized this need and decided to create Baby Chick — focusing on the modern mom.
Motherhood is beautiful, rewarding, and amazing in so many ways. However, I know that it can also be overwhelming, exhausting, and, at times, lonely. Here at Baby Chick, I want you to feel like you have a friend, a professional, and a place to go to that uplifts and inspires you every step of the way. We want to remind you that you’re doing a great job and that you’re not alone.
About Me and My Family
On a more personal level, I am a wife to my husband, Brian (he’s Baby Chick’s other Co-Founder and CEO), and a mother to my beautiful children, Liam and Lily. I am a first-generation born and raised Texan and UT Texas Exes Alumna. When I’m not working with a client, reviewing baby products, working on my business, etc. (because, obviously, I never have enough on my plate, ha!), you can find me in the gym listening to an audiobook, chauffeuring my kids to and from school and extracurricular activities, or snuggled up on the couch with my hubby talking about ways we can grow and improve Baby Chick.
Looking Toward the Future
I admire every mother I have gotten to work with and am so grateful to say I love my work. Right now, our focus is taking care of all our clients and providing an excellent resource for our readers. I feel honored to have assisted (and continue to assist) all the incredible families that I do.
Baby Chick has grown amazingly since our launch in 2015, and I’m excited for what the future holds. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know more about me and the creation of Baby Chick. I look forward to getting to know YOU as you read and hopefully engage with us!
