Thankful for the OC Baby Planner

In mid-January, I stumbled upon a contest that I found online. The contest was hosted by OC Baby Planner and announced on their blog.

Two winners were randomly chosen to win a Coming Soon Package, and I was one of those lucky two!

“A baby planner helps expecting moms discover their inner bump, birthing, and baby style – the products, services, and resources, that will make pregnancy as easy and as enjoyable as possible. She provides clients with the most up-to-date information to help them make well-informed decisions according to each family’s budget and lifestyle.” OC Baby Planner

Before I found this website, I had never heard of a baby planner and now I am completely overjoyed that I found such an amazing and knowledgeable new friend, Denise Xagorarakis, CEO for OC Baby Planner.

Honestly, winning this contest was a huge blessing in disguise and I cannot begin to tell you how helpful and supportive Denise has been!

Becoming a first-time mom, (of twins) planning can be very overwhelming at times. I had so many questions and really, just needed someone who could help guide me in the right direction and answer the hundreds of questions I had. Denise, the OC Baby Planner, has been that person for me.

My husband and I spent hours doing research online and I was able to bring my limited knowledge, then collaborate with my OC Baby Planner, and come up with a solution that was right for us.

The Coming Soon Package that I won was a $325 value and includes 3 consultations and unlimited ongoing dialogue and email correspondence.

On our first visit, Denise came to my home and we instantly clicked. She was very professional and had some worksheets for me to fill out. We discussed many concerns and questions that I had including what products to use, birthing options, classes to take, fitness programs and so much more. After our first consultation, Denise sent me a wealth of information via email that helped me put one foot in front of the other.

Yesterday, we met for brunch and enjoyed our second consult. One of my concerns was what baby products to purchase. She had a folder printed out for me that included product suggestions that was specific to twins, which was a blessing.

After lunch, we headed over to Babies R Us where Denise walked me around the store, offering suggestions and answering any questions I had. This was such an immense help.

Last night, when I was talking to my husband on the phone (after the consult) about which products to purchase, he actually said, “Wow, you sound so much more confident tonight.”

I have one more consult with Denise, where we will address any other questions I have but she has told me to call or email her anytime, which is a life saver.

I never heard of a baby planner before stumbling on the OC Baby Planner website, but I am so happy I found her. A lot of the stress has been lifted off of my shoulders and it is so wonderful knowing that I always have an expert to turn too.
