The business of babies

Wayyyyyyyyy back on maternity leave (more than a year ago!), I kept thinking about how there were so many things that were different/harder/more complicated as a result of being a brand-new Mom in D.C., versus what it might be like in Madison or Milwaukee. Some of it was probably true, some of it not, but the proximity to family and reallyclosefriends during those first few months was something I missed. 

Just as having a PACE group and lots of great coworkers moms to tap into, I kept coming back to the same idea: I wish I had a singular resource that linked me to all the local resources I wanted to navigate easily in Washington, D.C. from pregnancy to parenthood:

  • Pregnancy classes
  • Registry preparation (without the overwhelming Buy Buy Baby trip)
  • Child safety classes
  • Car seat installation
  • Breastfeeding resources
  • Activities to do on leave with a newborn
  • Best local online resources
Which is why, a few weeks ago, I kicked myself when I read about this exact growing trend.
