Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief

Nina is The Baby Chick® & Editor-in-Chief of Baby Chick®. Early in her career, Nina acquired her nickname from one of her birth doula clients, who lovingly referred to her as “The Baby Chick.” The “chick” who knows all about babies. The moniker has stuck ever since!
Nina received her baby planning certification in early 2011 and began attending births that same year. She received her birth doula and postpartum doula certifications from DONA International, her childbirth educator certification from ICEA, her Hynobabies Hypno-Doula certification, her license in massage therapy certifying in prenatal, labor induction, and postpartum massage, her infant massage instructor certification from Loving Touch, and her Prenatal Fitness Educator certification from ICEA. Nina has used her knowledge and expertise to teach and support hundreds of families during their pregnancies, at their births, and throughout their postpartum journeys for over a decade. It has been her passion to educate and support families through their motherhood experiences, and she has done exactly that and continues to do so through Baby Chick, named after her epithet. Having supported over 700 mothers, Nina is now sought after as a pregnancy, birth, and postpartum expert. She continues to make guest appearances on TV shows and podcasts, does speaking engagements, and reviews baby products while also running her digital media company, Baby Chick. Nina is also a loving mother to her two young children, Liam and Lily.
