“I started Baby out of my own experience as a mother. I was an NICU/Peds nurse when I first became a mother and a nurse practitioner with my second. Although I was educated and receiving care at Kaiser. My boys and I had gone to harsh labor experiences, and both ended up in NICU. I remember dealing with my pregnancies and later with motherhood with much anxiety and stress. Reading all I could read, asking a lot of questions and needing much more questions answered. As a Nurse and a Nurse practitioner I met with mom who were less knowledgeable and had little or no access to care and I saw that they suffered like me. I started “baby” in hope that I can solve their problems. Through demonstration projects and pilots, I found out that my assumptions were right and that BLA can increase access to care, reduce adverse health outcomes and help women and families better cope with pregnancy and parenthood”
