Last Tuesday while at the NJ Knot Networking event I had the pleasure of meeting Nicole Kaduson the owner of Belle Jour, a Baby and Event Planning company based out of Hoboken, New Jersey. She has created the ingenious concept of "Baby Planning". "With a background as a nanny as well as in pre/post natal Pilates, Nicole’s passion for working with expectant parents and new babies led her to receive her baby planning certification through the International Academy of Baby Planning Professionals. After watching and working with pregnant women around her, Nicole realized that there was an overwhelming number of products and services on the market geared towards pregnancy and expectant parents." Hence Belle Jour Baby Planning was born.
Here is a list of the services she offers:
Belle Jour Events works with each client to customize a package that works for their needs. We offer a free initial consultation to determine what exactly your family needs to prepare or welcome your new addition. Some of our packages are:
