Hey, I’m Nina, The Baby Chick!®–Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Baby Chick®, and I am beyond thrilled to start this new adventure with all of you! I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me, my passions, my experience, and what led me to create Baby Chick.
After receiving my degree from the University of Texas at Austin and being out in the working world for a little while, I quickly recognized that I needed to focus on the things that made me happy and follow my true passion, which is 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 250 mothers during their labors and births and helped over 500 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 of these families around the greater Houston, TX area with these services over the past nine years. Once starting this career path, people began to know me and say to me, “I’ve heard of you. You’re that baby chick that works with pregnant moms.” The nickname has now stuck, and so people affectionately refer to me as “The Baby Chick®.”
With the knowledge and experience that I have 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, there are also times that I’ve seen when it feels overwhelming, exhausting, and at times lonely. 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 and inspire you every step of the way so that we can remind you that you’re doing a great job and that you are not alone.
On a more personal level, I am a wife to my husband, Brian (he’s Baby Chick’s other Co-Founder and CEO), a mother to my beautiful son, Liam, and I have two crazy fur babies, Lola and Aria (one is a Pomeranian and the other an Alaskan Klee Kai). I am a first-generation born and raised Texan and UT Texas Exes Alumna. When I’m not working with a client, reviewing products, working on my business . . . (because obviously I never have enough on my plate, ha!) you can find me catching up with a girlfriend or snuggled up on the couch with my hubby talking about ways that we can grow and improve Baby Chick.
I admire every mother I have gotten to work with, and I am so grateful to say that I love the work I do. Right now, taking care of all of our clients and providing a great resource for our readers is our focus. I feel honored to have assisted and continue to assist all the incredible families that I do.
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know me, and I hope I have the pleasure of getting to know you as you read and hopefully comment on our social pages!
