About Baby Rabies

by Jill

This is what happens when baby fever becomes something more. Jill Krause self diagnosed herself with baby rabies (it’s not an actual contagious disease, FYI) in the summer of 2007 when she became obsessed with getting pregnant. Learn more about the definition of baby rabies here. She started blogging about all things trying-to-conceive then. Eleven years and four babies later, Baby Rabies is now a internationally recognized pregnancy and parenting blog.

Baby Rabies has been recognized by Time, Vogue, The Bump, Buzzfeed, and won an Iris Award for Personal Blog of the Year in 2016. Krause has appeared on CNN, Huffington Post Live, and Texas Living, and has been published on Huffington Post and Today.com. Her work has also been featured on Daily Mail, US Weekly, and Refinery 29, in addition to many other outlets.

Krause has a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri where she focused on broadcast journalism and reported for the local NBC affiliate KOMU. Before becoming a full-time blogger, she also held jobs in marketing, fundraising, and public relations.

Her first book, 50 Things to Do Before You Deliver: The First Time Moms Pregnancy Guide, was released on April 3, 2018. It is available now at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

She and her husband Scott, and their 4 kids- Kendall (boy, 10), Leyna (girl, 7), Lowell (boy, 5), and Wallace (boy, 1.5), are currently travelling the country in an RV. They are documenting that journey at HappyLoudLife.com.
