Support & Education

I am a certified Birth and Postpartum & Infant Care Doula. I have been supporting our community since 2015 and I believe in our amazing bodies and the process of birth. I also believe strongly that there is no one perfect way to birth or parent your baby. Instilling confidence, reducing fears and supporting any type of birth experience that my client wants is top priority! I love all of our area hospitals and have a fantastic reputation with the OB’s and Midwives. We are so lucky to have such wonderful places to birth our babies in and around Cleveland! When working with my clients during their postpartum, I enjoy watching the love grow as each family welcomes each new baby and witnessing each parent blossom and gain confidence in caring for their new baby. I’ve been told that I have a calming presence and make my clients feel at peace, which really is a huge part of my job! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my three daughters and our dog, Annie. I also love trying new local restaurants, decorating, cooking, and watching my guilty pleasure shows on Bravo!

Baby Beginnings

Megan Nadzam RN, MSN, CNP-BC and Jacqueline Ludwig RNC, BSN | 440.497.6858

Located in Mentor and serving all of the Northeast Ohio, Cleveland, and Akron areas

Our purpose at Baby Beginnings is to empower, educate and support new parents! Our Clinical Nurse Consultants offer home visits and infant education for Northeast Ohio families. The nurse consultants at Baby Beginnings are registered nurses that have Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) experience. They have taken care of the sickest newborn babies, some born as early as 22 weeks gestation.

Our nurses can assess the needs of your infant, address parental concerns, and provide the resources needed to help the transition home more successful, less stressful! It Takes A Village… are not in this alone!

The role of the Clinical Nurse Consultant at Baby Beginnings is to obtain information from the parents and develop a plan on how to help them.  Before every home visit, there will be a 30 minute FREE phone consultation between the parent(s) and nurse where we will discuss how things are going in the home with the newborn and family.  We will then form a plan on how we can help and what education is needed to assist in making the transition home with a newborn more successful, less stressful. During the home visit, we will go over the plan we have developed with the family, answer any questions or concerns they may have, and make referrals to community-based resources if indicated.  After each visit, we will send an email with what was discussed at the visit, as well as the resource information we suggested. We will also be available by phone or email for any additional questions or concerns.

A new baby in the home is challenging and we recognize that! Let us help you! We are more than just a friend to talk to, we are Registered Nurses who have been taking care of the sickest babies for many many years!

Project Preemie

We serve Northeast Ohio NICU’s | Our Personal Journey | Blog | Network of Support

Project Preemie is dedicated to supporting families with children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the medical professionals who care for them.

We want to lessen the burden on preemie families, offer resources for family and friends supporting them, and recognize the medical teams that care for them… so more space can be opened to celebrate each family’s tiny miracle.

Having a premature baby can happen to anyone. It can happen to you or someone you know. It can be a very isolating and confusing… and after it happens, the way of life as you know it changes instantly. As parents of two babies born prematurely, Nicholas and Pam Frasco have experienced everything that comes along with bringing a baby into the world too soon.

Project Preemie was born out of the love and support of friends, family and the need and desire to give back to the community that meant so much to our family during several months of our lives. During two stints in the NICU after having our sons Santino at 31.5 weeks and Salvatore at 30.5 weeks, we were fortunate enough to have lots of shoulders to lean on. Although there were many folks around us, we still felt very alone in our journey. The small tokens of support we received from other parents and organizations in the NICU and preemie communities meant so much that we wanted to expand on that for others. That’s why we are here! To help those going through the experience and recognize those special caregivers that help these miracles grow.

We are service based, offering support from the minute a family finds out they are expecting into the first year of the baby’s life.

Our Services Include: Preparing for Baby, Maternity Concierge, Bed Rest Support, Relocation Support, Parent Prep Classes, and Nanny Placement.

Baby-Friendly Gathering Places

Cloud 9

111 S Buckeye St, Suite 100, Wooster OH, 44691 | 234.815.3415 |
As a mom of two boys I was looking for a place that I could go and actually have a moment to myself while my kids played. I longed for a place I could go to connect with other moms where we could actually sit and have a conversation even though our kids were along. I noticed most play places required parents to follow their kids around and were anything but relaxing. I had the idea of a modern feeling play place that was as appealing to parents as it was to kids. A place where parents could go and perhaps take a book or a laptop and have a few moments to themselves while the kids played. I also wanted it to be a sensory friendly environment that wasn’t loud or overwhelming to the kids or the parents. Since we opened, I have absolutely loved seeing parents love using our space as their kids play and get creative with hands on activities and open-ended play. Sometimes parents bring work to do, sometimes they sit and relax. Sometimes mom friends will come in together for a coffee play date. Sometimes parents come just to have a different place to interact and play with their kids. We are currently offering monthly play groups, a monthly support group for families of kids with special needs, a weekly music class, along with just our daily open play. The kids love it and the parents do too!

We believe you will find yourself feeling at home here and building a sense of community with other people you meet at Play Grounds.
