Just in time for Mother’s Day: Sugar Baby Planners

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2011 by Lowcountry Boil

The go-to coach for everything maternity, Sugar Baby Planners is set to launch in Charleston on Mother’s Day. Like a wedding planner for happy couples, a baby planner will assist soon-to-be parents with the myriad of choices they face before their baby arrives. Parents can spend entire weekends web surfing and shopping for all of mom and baby’s needs and still not know what to choose. Not to mention, deciding whether you want professional baby bump photos, who offers pre-natal massage and when the next baby class opens for registration. This new consulting business will offer expecting moms peace of mind throughout their pregnancy.

As a mom of two, owner Sunny Gray knows the to-do list runs long and the options seem endless. “Most women have jobs when they discover they’re pregnant. So, they have limited time to research the best stroller, whether they want a doula or what’s up with the cloth diaper revival,” she explains. “I want to help new moms enjoy their pregnancy and feel confident that they are prepared for the new addition to their family.”

Sugar Baby Planners will meet with new parents and then create personalized recommendations and provide referrals. Also, clients will receive a copy of The Mom Manual loaded with pregnancy tips and links to local and national resources. For example, moms can find when and where you can catch a prenatal yoga class or where you can create a personalized baby website. In addition to consulting, Sugar Baby Planners can help new parents create a baby registry to fit their needs, stock the nursery, provide advice on how to “green” the nursery, schedule food delivery post baby, get the baby announcements out and much more.
