(Newser) – Babies are tough, time-consuming work – even before they’re born. That’s why a new industry of “baby planners” has cropped up, catering to busy women who don’t have time for things like setting up registries, decorating nurseries, and hiring a nanny. For a mere $100 or so an hour, baby planners can do all that and more, ABC news reports.

“It’s for women who are very busy,” said one baby planner. “We do the leg work for families that allow them to enjoy pregnancy and be excited about the new addition to their family.”
