Laura Hunter and Jennifer Walker are the power pair behind Moms On Call (MOC), a coaching and educational resource company for new parents.
Hunter and Walker, two pediatric nurses with children of their own, started MOC after fielding many similar questions from patients suffering from information overload.
“We started our company after the explosion of the internet,” explained MOC co-founder Laura Hunter. “New parents were inundated with so much information and they constantly had similar questions and concerns. This is when we decided to launch a consulting service to help parents,” Hunter said.
MOC began as an in-home consulting service, helping parents with swaddling to nail clipping to a nighttime routine.
MOC’s best practices resulted in happy, healthy babies sleeping through the night and parents loved it!
Laura and Jennifer continued serving clients one household at a time until a celebrity client urged the women to package their valuable intellectual capital into a book.
“Baker Publishing picked up our book and it exploded,” said Laura. “From there we began doing online classes and posting videos to our website,” she added.
Laura and Jennifer published 3 books for different infant stages of development and designed specialty swaddling blankets. The partners packaged and shipped products from their basement.
Today, more than a decade after Laura and Jennifer launched MOC, the company is booming. MOC has a contract with Gerber to private label their swaddle blankets, a distributor for their products and trained consultants operating worldwide. A team of two now has a team of 30, with the operational team of four meeting at IgniteHQ.
“Our biggest growth jump happened in the past two years. Until now we’ve sold upwards of 175,000 books. We’re projected to sell 65,000 books in 2019 alone,” said Laura.
Laura and Jennifer have just relaunched several basics videos on their website and have been busy filming since January for the relaunch of their online classes due out this summer.
“We eat, sleep and breathe this stuff,” exclaimed Laura. “Jennifer and I easily put in 60 hours per week.”
Laura is proud of the success of Moms on Call and grateful she and Jennifer can positively influence and help thousands of new parents.
At the end of the day, MOC is about being “ a voice of hope and encouragement to families around the world. You see our families have everything they need to be great parents, they just need someone to believe in them.”
