Some of us live near grandma or parents and friends who can give us advice about our kids. For those of us who don’t, who can you ask who has years of experience and the most up-to-date information? You can try calling your pediatrician every few minutes. You can read all the books you can get your hands on. Or you can try Moms on Call.
Jennifer Walker and Laura Hunter were on-call nurses for a busy pediatric practice in Atlanta. They realized parents needed help with their questions and they needed fast answers. They found during their in-home visits that parents often had the same concerns — like “why do babies fuss? or “why is my baby crying?” So they made a folder in simple outline form and that was the start of Moms On Call.
Now, three books and two apps later — plus a worldwide consulting practice through various digital communications (phone, email, video conferencing)— Moms on Call has become a consultation service for parents who need practical, real-life answers they can put into practice now.
Here's my interview with Jennifer Walker.
