Hug-a-Bub is one of my favorite baby carrier companies and I absolutely love their organic wraps. Today I am giving you the chance to learn a bit more about who they are and how they became Hug-A-Bub.
Above is a photo of Suzanne, the founder of the company. She kindly answered the following questions for us:
What were you doing before you started your business?
I started Hug-a-Bub 14 years ago. I have four children who range in age from 6 to 24 so I was pretty busy! I was working as a Doula and Natural Birth Educator. Even before I started Hug-a-Bub I was focused on babies!
What is your company all about?
Hug-a-Bub is all about mothers enjoying their new baby. The carrier eases babies into the world and eases mothers into mothering. It fosters bonding and meeting the baby’s needs without ignoring the needs of the mother. How many times do you hear mother’s saying that they had such a stressed out day because they couldn’t put their baby down even once? With Hug-a-Bub they don’t have to put their baby down but they can also do whatever they want to do, ensuring stress-free mothering.
What is your favourite thing about owning your own business?
I love knowing that what we are doing makes a real difference and hearing how much easier and joyful parenting can be. I also love that I can work around my family’s needs and the hours are flexible. Owning your own business makes your work a much more personal, passionate endeavour.
What’s next for your business?
We want to focus on organic products. Organic products do have a higher price point but we want to part of the solution for a sustainable future of our children and their children, not contributing to the problem. We believe that maintaining our high standards ensures a superior product that customers value. We want to grow our distribution network, particularly in the US and the UK while maintaining our commitment to manufacturing within Australia, fair trade and organic farming practices.
