The Rise of the Maternity Concierge
Thanks to Rosie Pope we have now identified a must-have pregnancy service. We were beside ourselves with joy when we came across our newest partner, The Baby Planners. They are a London based baby planning and maternity concierge company dedicated to providing support and guidance to new and expectant parents by offering every service you could possibly need during those precious nine months of pregnancy. The baby planners are Simone & Gemma and we were pleased to interview them: How can the Baby Planners help you? You have seen pregnant in heels laughed at the parents to be and wondered why you would ever hire someone to help you choose your baby's name? More money then sense you have mumbled to yourself. Well let me introduce ourselves and explain what we do then maybe you will have a different view on how maternity concierges work. Myself and Gemma have been nannies for over twenty years and throughout our nanny careers we have experienced many different families and situations but the one recurring theme in all our nanny families was "are we doing this right" or "there is so much information how do I know what's right for me" so we decided to set up the baby planners to offer support and advice for parents to be tailor made for them to suit their lifestyle. A service that helps parents and parents-to-be with everything from practical advice on birthing plans and hospital bags to fun stuff like organising baby showers, decorating the nursery and so much more. We work with a network of professionals to support and advise you offering standard or bespoke packages dependent on your family’s needs. So what can you expect from us? We offer in home consultation where we will go over all your concerns and worries. Be it birthing plans, birthing choices, pregnancy nutrition, baby proofing your home or choosing the right buggy (that will fit through your front door) we will then go away and come back with a plan just for you. We work along side midwives and sleep consultants so you know your always going to get the best advice. Our aim is to use our expertise, knowledge and contacts to ensure you have a healthy, happy, worry free pregnancy and can relax and enjoy your new baby. Not to take away the fun of your pregnancy but helping you make decisions that let you really enjoy being pregnant. Think of us like your wise, loving big sister that will do everything in our power to magic away your worries whilst also remaining in the real world of midwives appointments and dirty nappies! We are completely Independent and we don't work alongside any big companies so you can be assured that our advice is completely our own with no hidden commission motive. We also attend baby shows and fairs, and keep up to date on new safety guidelines so any advice given is up to date. Classes and workshops We also offer both ante-natal and post-natal classes which can be taken in the privacy of your own home or along side other parents-to-be. We also have a selection of post-natal services from learning how to breastfeed to having us in your home looking after mum and baby in those precious few weeks of babies life. Plus we offer practical parenting classes with our own baby planners dolls. (learn to swaddle, bath and use a sling etc) perfect for some extra practise before baby arrives, Especially for the daddy to be. We also run weaning classes and from the summer we will be offering baby massage classes too. We like to think of ourselves as your pregnancy godmothers, your one stop baby shop for all your pregnancy and baby needs.
