Why did you start your business?
After having my son in 2009, I realized how lonely, frustrating, and overwhelming being a new mom can be. And if I felt that way, with my experience, I can only imagine how other new mamas felt. I struggles a lot as a new mama with pretty much everything. I’ve never felt lonelier than when my son was a newborn.
I started my business so that mamas can get the support they need, so they don’t feel lonely and overwhelmed and to give mamas that village that no longer exists. We live so far apart from each other that the village our moms and grandmothers had no longer exists. I want to bring that back and help make this motherhood gig easier.
What is you favourite past about being in business?
I love the relationship I get to build with pregnant women and mamas. I love it when a baby finally learns to latch properly and nurses or when when a mama tells me that their toddler is sleeping through in night in their bed.
Most importantly I love it when I’ve made things easier for that mama and her family!
