My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear is there for all parents who want a special way to preserve that precious baby heartbeat captured before birth. Those cute and cuddly keepsakes now have a new friend: the “I <3 My Midwife” bear, inspired by their creator’s own birthing experience last year. In honor of midwives and to support them in her creative way, Purusha has added a “Save the Midwives” BabyHawk Mei Tai carrier and the “I <3 My Midwife” heartbeat bear to her online store. Check out what she has to say about these new products and enter for your chance to win them in the giveaway below.
TLB: Followers of The Leaky Boob know My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear as a sponsor that cares about moms, and the beautiful bond that they have with their babies. Could you remind our Leakies about the furry products you carry?
Purusha: Yes! We carry Heartbeat Animal kits for expectant mothers to record their baby’s heartbeat and create a unique pregnancy keepsake. Each kit comes with an adorable stuffed animal and heart shaped recorder.
TLB: You now carry a couple of new items in your store in support of midwives. Could you tell us about those?
Purusha: We just added our exclusive “SAVE the Midwives” Babyhawk Mei Tai and “I <3 My Midwife” Heartbeat Bear kit!
TLB: What inspired you to start carrying the “Save the Midwives” Mei Tai and T-shirt wearing bear?
Purusha: Last year I had a homebirth. Except it wasn’t in my own home. Where I live midwives are not legally allowed to accompany a woman giving birth in her home. So I was forced to find a place out of state to have my baby. In fact, this is happening all over the country. I was lucky enough to have an amazing Midwife that offered her home to me and she is the reason I created these products.
TLB: What was your experience like working with a midwife?
Purusha: It was a wonderful experience. She gave me the emotional, physical, and spiritual support I needed during my pregnancy and the birth of my 10 lb. baby boy!
TLB: Is there anything else that you would like our Leakies to know about My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear or your “Save the Midwives” products?
Purusha: A portion of every sale is donated to the Save the Midwife legal fund. We all deserve the right to choose how and where we give birth. It’s time we help SAVE the Midwives.
