Heartbeat Keepsakes - An Interview with Nicole Blosser

Posted by Mary Clavieres on

A new interview in the Mommin' It Business Series is here! Featuring mom owned businesses that support pregnant and new moms.

Today I’m speaking with Nicole Blosser, owner of Heartbeat Keepsakes. Nicole is a mom of 3 young children, ages 10, 8, and 5 years old.

Nicole and her husband own 2 mom/pregnancy based businesses. They started out in business in 2015, and enjoy new challenges every day. It's definitely never boring for Nicole! 

Tell us about your business. How do you help expecting or new moms?

We make custom heartbeat jewelry, allowing moms to keep their baby's heartbeat with them no matter where they are.

What makes you unique as a mom & business owner?

We started as business owners in 2015, which means my kids pretty much grew up in and around our business. Now that they're getting older, we always have conversations about the ins and outs of owning a business. It's amazing how much they take in!

What's the hardest part of running your business and being a mom?

Doing both to the best of my ability! It feels like it's a constant struggle of not having enough time. Also, childcare has been especially difficult with COVID. Health care is also always a stressor!

What is one "messy" thing about being a mom/biz owner that you would never share in public?

The two worlds collide all the time. I'm constantly trying to find places to hide from my kids or literally running away from a screaming kid while trying to assist a client on the phone.

What's your favorite thing about being a mom/biz owner?

Flexibility. I feel like I'm literally working all day, but if I have to take my kids somewhere I can work from home or make it up later that night.

What advice and words of encouragement would you give to expecting or new moms? 

Let it go! The dishes? Let it go. The laundry? Let it go. The need to research every single detail for hours on end? Let it go. Try not to drive yourself crazy. Lower your housekeeping standards a bit, and let yourself rest and bond with baby.

Let dad/your partner know how to help. Be specific on that. They don't always catch our hints, even when we think it should be obvious.

How has motherhood changed you?

It made me realize I can handle much more than I thought. It's harder than I anticipated, but I have learned I can do hard things.

What is one toy, item, product, book, resource, podcast that you would recommend to a new or expecting mom? 

If you're working and breastfeeding, a good pump and good support well versed in breastfeeding.

About Nicole Blosser

Nicole is a mom to 3 young children who are 10, 8, and 5 years old. She owns two mom/pregnancy based businesses with her husband. One business was a spin off from another.

We started out in business in 2015. Our first business was an elective ultrasound business for expecting moms. Heartbeat Keepsakes was born because I wanted to offer our clients custom heartbeat jewelry, but no one had what I wanted, so I decided to teach myself to make what I had in mind.

It was a far bigger learning curve than I anticipated, but I came out of the other side with another business.
