Baby Concierge featured in Bbaby
It was great to be featured in Bbaby Magazine – I am thrilled! Minime and Luxury have been running a baby concierge service for more than 10 years now. Having previously worked within the Childcare industry for over 15 years, as a Supernanny, Private Maternity Nurse, Sleep Trainer and Baby Concierge, I have a wealth of experience.
A Baby Concierge is someone with a wealth of experience of the baby market, who will be able to sit down with you and discuss your lifestyle, then recommend products, equipment and services that will really fit with the way you live. Some will suggest items, other will buy them for you and even deliver and build them in your home. A premium service, it’s like having an expert on hand whenever you need to decide which pram or car seat to choose, what furniture will best suit (and fit) your home and the best places for gorgeous baby clothes.

What’s the most commonly asked question by parents-to-be?
“Tell me what I need to buy?”
Do you find that you often answer question, fears and worries from your clients?
Yes, I find that due to my experience as a private maternity nurse, I can answer a wide range of questions. I also find that now I have my own child, I can relate more to expectant mothers and appreciate their anxiety and concerns. I also think that a great deal of concerns are about nannies, nurseries and post-natal fitness and because I have helped numerous clients on this journey, I feels confident that I can address almost any concerns.
What has been your oddest request?
Setting up a full nursery in two different countries in two days – but I got it done.
What was your favourite incident or something you helped with?
One of my favourite experiences was helping a client moving from abroad to the UK, which was proving to be very stressful for her. I hired all the household staff, organised setting up her nursery, getting her a great team of professionals for the birth and the photographs afterwards and I still work with her as a childcare and product advisor.
I have worked all over the globe and my favourites places are the Middle East, USA and the Caribbean. I regularly contribute to the press on a wide range of topics, usually concentrating on children and luxury! I am blessed to have a career I love and the reason for starting Minime and Luxury was to reassure people it is okay remain a “person” when you become a “parent” and enjoy life, travel, and stay up late when you want to – it’s all about creating memories and enjoying your parenting journey. I am passionate about baby and children’s products, holidays, restaurants, nursery interior and style.
I hope you enjoyed finding out a bit about the industry and we’d like to thank Bbaby Magazine for the feature.
