Have a Relaxing Pregnancy

Baby Blueprint Maternity Concierge

baby blueprint maternity concierge!

Pregnancy is a 40-week marathon. Before you reach the finish line, there’s gear to buy, a nursery to decorate, and epic bloating to contend with.

Stay cheerfully on course with the help of Baby Blueprint maternity concierge. The biz, run by two local moms, helps families prepare for the big day — everything from personal shopping to nursery design to mailing shower invites.

Count on them for registry consultation (they’ll meet you at the store and walk you through all the loot). Or have them on call throughout your whole pregnancy; they’ll put together a month-by-month checklist of vital things to do, from ordering that custom-built crib to taking CPR classes. Through it all, they’re there with the kind of moral support you’d expect from a friend.

Without any of the judgment.
