Dilworth Business Series: BettyRuth Baby
We are excited to introduce to you a first in our Business Series – a concierge business, BettyRuth Baby! This in-home baby consulting service, was founded by Meigan Alexander, and we had the privilege of sitting down with her recently – she is warm, inviting and incredibly knowledgable.
Whether you are currently pregnant, or have just given birth to your newest bundle of joy, Meigan is the woman to call! She saw a need to help new mothers, and coupled with her own experience and passion formed the most brilliant and helpful concierge service.
As she puts it, today’s society is very “transient” – new mothers may not always have family around to help them navigate those first several months, so that’s where she comes alongside to help guide, counsel and be a solid resource for any and every question or situation a mom may be dealing with. As you’ll see in our Q&A, she specializes from “bumps to boobs”! And, as a Certified Lactation Consultant, she is that calm, non-judgmental voice of support you are looking for.
There truly is nothing she hasn’t thought of to make life easier for her clients! As part of her services, you will also be introduced to other businesses she’s partnered with in Charlotte – all with you, the new mom, in mind.
Follow her on Facebook (BettyRuth Baby – notice the raves review too), Instagram (@BettyRuthBaby) and her website (BettyRuth.com)for breastfeeding/new baby tips & tricks. She’s got some exciting partnership news coming up too!
On a different note, if you aren’t the new mom, but are in need of a thoughtful gift for one, she can also put together unique, practical and beautiful gift baskets! She has thought of everything and we’re so excited to introduce our readers to her and her services.
