Baby+Company recently hosted a “Meet the Photographer” event at the birth center to highlight a few of our favorite Triangle photographers. We had some incredible artists from various fields exhibiting their work: from birth photographers to folks specializing in newborn, lifestyle, family, and portrait photography. We are very lucky to have such creative community partners in the Triangle area! Below are the folks that participated in the event. We thought it would be beneficial to outline their specialties and include some of their work for those that might be searching for photography options. So without further ado… Dana Ashley… Read More

This past weekend was an event I’ve dreamt about for years – my BABY SHOWER! After struggling with infertility, there were times where I thought I may never get to experience the joy and excitement of my own baby shower. As an attendee (and host) of my fair share of showers, I was elated that the time had come to gather my closest friends and family in celebration of this impending and monumental life change. One of my very best friends of over 25 years, Katie, graciously offered to host and plan the big day – all from 2,500 miles… Read More

Each year, there is a theme, and for 2017, the theme is “Be Bold for Change.” The change they’re talking about is closing the gender gap in the workplace – with gendered… Read More

While the term “babymoon” was originally coined in 1994 by Sheila Kitzinger to describe the time new parents have with their new baby during the hours and days after birth, it has evolved in definition to describe a relaxing or romantic vacation taken by soon-to-be parents before their baby’s arrival.

I’ve never had many girlfriends. Growing up, I always seemed to have more in common with the guys than I did with my female peers – and that was just fine with me! Even in college, I disdained the company of other ladies, instead befriending my now-husband’s fraternity brothers. My mother-in-law would tell me, “You need some girlfriends! Every woman needs to have other women to confide in!” and I’d always brush her off. After all, I’m married to my best friend – what need did I have for others? But if you’re like me, the birth of your first… Read More

Finding out you are pregnant is such a joyous occasion, and one you are typically bursting at the seams to share with at least a few close friends or family members early on. When and how to share the news is a personal decision, typically wrought with some sort of apprehension during the first trimester. If you are like me, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops and tell every random stranger the happy news! I didn’t do this of course, but keeping such an exciting secret after waiting so long is hard to do, especially when those in… Read More
