My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Give-away

One of those very special moments for expecting families is when you get to hear your growing baby’s heartbeat for the first time.  And the second time.  And every time after that.  There is something beautiful and moving about hearing the steady rhythm of your developing baby’s heart, indicating life, strength and health.  As an ultrasound tech, Purusha has enjoyed this experience over and over and over again, and created in her a desire to provide a way for all these families to be able to take that life-sound home in a quality, cuddly, snuggly way, and keep it forever.  This is how My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear was born.  As a new sponsor on TLB, Purusha is offering our Leakies a look into who she is, what her hopes are for My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear, and a chance for 3 Leakies to win one of her cute, recordable animals.  These darlings are a great baby gift idea as well!   I’m so grateful for the support of My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear for TLB and all Leakies and hope you enjoy the interview and giveaway.

TLB:  What would you like readers to know about your company?

Purusha:  My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear offers expectant mothers a way to capture the sound of their baby’s heartbeat in an adorable stuffed animal to create a unique pregnancy keepsake. We have a large variety of animals to choose from including a monkey, elephant, giraffe, owls, bears, and many more. We recently added an Angel Bear that was created for a mother carrying a baby unable to survive outside the womb, and our Soothing Sounds bear for children with sensory issues that are comforted by certain sounds (mothers voice, rain, white noise.)

TLB:  How did My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear come about?

Purusha:  Working as an Ultrasound Tech in a busy OB office I am in contact with many expectant mothers. I had a patient tell me about a friend that had her baby’s heartbeat recorded in a stuffed bear. I was determined to find these bears and make them available to my patients! I did a lot of research and found stuffed animals that really did not meet my standards of quality for such a special keepsake. I decided I had to create my own line of heartbeat animal kits and make them available to every expectant mother out there. It has been a lot of fun creating keepsakes that bring so many smiles!

TLB:  How do you balance being a mom and running your own company?

Purusha:  Ugh! This is tough! I am a single mother of 9 year old boy/girl twins and struggle with finding balance often. I try to work as hard as I can when my kids are with their dad so I can concentrate on them when they are with me. There have been many nights I’ve laid in bed wondering if I made the right decision taking on the challenge of running my own business. I have come to realize my children love seeing me happy and are just as proud of me as I am of them. Although at times it may be stressful, overall it is still a lot of fun and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

TLB:  What are your favorite breastfeeding memories as a mom?

Purusha:  I nursed my twins for over 10 months and really loved it. I remember their little hands reaching for my face as we stared in each others eyes and the comfort it brought to them when nothing else would calm them. At 4 months my babies were too big to tandem nurse and I had to start nursing them separately. This was guaranteed one on one time with me and each baby. I am so grateful I have those memories and preach to ALL my patients that breastfeeding can really be a wonderful experience, even with multiples!

TLB:  What is one tip that helped you in your breastfeeding journey that you’d like to pass on to other moms?

Purusha:  Your body was made to feed your baby! It isn’t always easy, and may require a lot of work, but with time this will get easier and you will eventually look back on these days and be proud of the work you put into this.

  67. Recently, my 5 & 1 year old went to the zoo with my cousin and I. My five-year-old’s favorite animal was the giraffe, but my son loved the monkeys, especially the nursling one (who was nearing two years, just like him!). I wanted to hug that Momma Monk, as we’re both nursing “toddlers,” and seem to have a lot in common… trying to tame our toddler sons – it’ll never happen! 🙂 So, again, I’m torn between the two, but I’d love to win one and buy one!! Thank you!
