Welcome to Bird & Bear. A space created in celebration and support of the crazy wonderful journey of pregnancy, birth and postpartum – whatever that might look like for you.
My own journey as a pregnant woman, mother, doula and childbirth educator led me to create Bird and Bear Family Gift Boxes as a way to send some well-thought-out, practical, locally-sourced gifts to loved ones as they navigate the early days of parenting. The boxes are a combination of practical and joyful, with a little something for the whole family (even the four-legged family members). We’ve since added Baby Gift Boxes to the online shop because there are just so many gorgeous, locally-made products out there and since I no longer need them myself, I plan to live vicariously through the recipients of these boxes!
Ultimately, though, birthing people and parents are our main focus. With all the (completely justifiable) excitement around the arrival of a brand new baby, the immense transition that parents are experiencing can sometimes be forgotten. So we created an online shop stocking locally sourced, practical and eco-conscious gems of products for pregnant, birthing and postpartum folks, making stocking a hospital bag or homebirth kit super convenient.
When sourcing products I prioritise small, local businesses, with socially and environmentally conscious practices and natural, cruelty-free ingredients.
