Why we came to be
Bundle of Joy Box came from the desire to connect Canadian families with Canadian makers and creators. While looking into creating a pregnancy box for Canadian families, we wanted to hold our values of sustainable Canadian made products in every box. While it may not have been easy to source every item we wanted to share with you, we've come a long way. And we never stop improving.
Who we are
I am mother of 4, birth doula and animal lover. I currently live in Spruce Grove with my 3 youngest children, husband, a couple dogs & a cat. I've worked in the birth world for almost 20 years in various capacities. From working with the Healthy Baby program in Newfoundland, attending births for the last 15 years in the Edmonton area and even working in office with Spruce Grove midwives, pregnancy, birth and postpartum has been the majority of my adult life. Over the years I've had clients ask me about pregnancy snacks and self care items, so I've gathered some knowledge on what pregnant people like and look for. When my oldest daughter was pregnant, we started looking at various pregnancy subscription boxes. We wanted something with wholesome products that was also more Canadian geared and in Canadian funds. We couldn't really find something that fit our needs. Thus starting the desire to create one.
I'm a mom to a 2 year old and an almost 1 year old! I recently eloped in the beautiful BC mountains, and currently reside with my little family and doggies in Stony Plain. I've always loved nature and do my best to create a sustainable lifestyle to teach my son about. My mom has had a tapestry on her wall for the longest time, "We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children", and now having my own I feel an even greater need to help enhance his love of the earth. When I was pregnant with my first I spent a lot of time looking at nutritious foods, non toxic home care and baby products. I had wished that I could just order a box with a mix of things and have it show up. I needed something simple as I was working full time in the city, and didn't have a ton of time to go around and look for things. I also didn't know what to pick, so I wasted money testing things that didn't hold up. During all this my mom and I said several times, "Where is the Canadian pregnancy box?". Once my little guy was born, we got to work creating just that. I'm so excited to be able to offer pregnant families all the things I wanted!
So, that's basically us! We hope you enjoy what we have to offer. If you're a Canadian creator send us an email. We love meeting new makers!
Let's be friends!
