Newborns & Nurseries Inc. Baby Planning is a Calgary based business focused on providing education and support for soon to be parents in all aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and early childhood. We offer customized services ranging from baby shower planning, birth support and education right up to postpartum planning and doula support. Newborns & Nurseries Inc. emphasizes heavily on the importance of parental empowerment and educated decision making, we are here to help parents navigate through the infinite amount of information available to expecting families. Maintaining a low stress environment during pregnancy is so vitally important for the health and safety of both mom and baby, we take on the stress of preparation so families can enjoy this incredible, life changing transition!
What led you to starting your business? What drives you?
The inspiration for Newborns & Nurseries Inc. came from my own personal experience as a new mom. The options and opinions were incredibly overwhelming for me, and I found myself losing my own voice as a mother and lacking confidence in my ability to make decisions. Sometimes we second guess ourselves and seek the opinions of others for our parenting concerns, the problem is that what worked for your friend or your mom might not work for your family. I wanted to create a resource where parents could receive information customized for their specific needs, somewhere where people never felt judged or pressured to make one decision or another. Our mission is to provide totally unbiased support for our families, regardless of personal beliefs or previous experiences. We were born to be parents, sometimes we all need a little reminder and a helping hand to regain the connection to our intuition!
