We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayla Loschky and Jeri Ford and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kayla Loschky and Jeri Ford, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Baby Whisperers was founded by two Pediatric Registered Nurses, Kayla Loschky and Jeri Ford. Kayla ventured into the private baby nursing world and quickly fell in love. Once discussing with
Jeri, they realized the process needed much improvement. Typically, baby nurses are hired
through word of mouth and there is not a mainstream way for parents to find them. Also, the
term “baby nurse” is a catch all – from nannies to infant care specialist. We wanted to create a
service for families to be able to hire baby nurses who are experienced Pediatric and/or NICU
Registered Nurses, thus Baby Whisperers was born. You can find out more information here:
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Having a baby or welcoming a baby into your family is such a special time but it can also come with a lot of unknowns and anxiety. We ultimately want to educate parents about safe newborn care and empower them to care for their newborn the best way they can. Many families are left tired and nervous immediately
after birth, and it can put a real strain on the family dynamic. The first few weeks at home can
truly set the tone for parenthood and babyhood alike. We have seen first-hand how education
and recuperation in the home can dramatically change the parents experience with their
newborn. Our focus on education and empowering the parents is what sets us apart from
nannies and other professions.
Our ultimate goal is to be matching nurses to families all over the country as the one and only
Registered Nurse Baby Nurse Matching company. We know there is a need for this service and
it truly makes the first few weeks such a better experience for both parents and the newborn.
As nurses, we have so much knowledge to help teach and empower parents who tend to be
scared or unaware of how to care for a newborn. Our service not only lets parents sit back and
relax while we find their dream baby nurse, we also empower them and instill confidence in
them as parents within their own home.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We love The Rustic, Katy Trail Ice House, True Food Kitchen, Crisp and Green, Mesquite Rodeo, JFK Museum, The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, White Rock Lake biking trail or kayaking, and The Reunion Tower.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We each come from a strong and loving family who have supported us endlessly. We are both so incredibly thankful for our families and their encouragement to be such go getters. They continually push us be our personal best and we are incredibly grateful for them! We also want to shout out to our nursing schools – University of Indianapolis and Indiana Wesleyan University. Although nursing school was challenging, it has lead to an amazing career for each of us and we are so thankful for that.
