“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Thank you for being so smart, clever and witty! I’m enjoying my subscription and appreciate what you’re doing.

Your information reads like YOU are having fun and that’s worth a lot! Thanks for many good ideas.

Birth Plan

Whether you realize it or not, you've got 'people.' Someone who does your taxes, cleans your house or paints your toenails. So it makes sense, with Baby on the way, to add another name to your rolodex: Kelly Oswald.

Oswald is the founder of Seattle Baby Planners, a one-stop shop that provides consulting, resources and guidance to empower new parents.

What kind of help does Oswald offer the first-time mama-to-be? She and her network of experts can handle anything from decorating your nursery, to helping you find a doula or nanny to offering advice on negotiating maternity leave with your employer.

Let's face it, regardless of whether you plan to return to work after Baby arrives, during your pregnancy, you're plugging away, a multi-tasking maniac up until week 40. Why not call in the pros to handle the heavy-lifting while you and your significant other obsess over baby names and savor your last few months as a twosome?

Aside from one-on-one consulting, Oswald offers super-cool pregnancy and parenting packages, with clever names for various stages of your pregnancy: Beaming, Bulging and Bursting (the latter includes a pedicure at a toxin-free salon, a birth plan session with a doula and a one-on-one breastfeeding workshop with a lactation consultant.) Can you say fab shower gift?
