    From the Founder: Introducing BeliBea

    To my wonderful family, friends, BeliBea supporters and anyone learning about us for the first time, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me turn this dream into a reality. It’s been a long and winding journey, but I couldn’t be happier with how the BeliBea brand has grown from a simple idea to a line of products!

    My personal experiences as a mother of four have played a key role in the development of BeliBea. Much of the love and passion that I have for my children spills over into the brand…you could easily say it’s my fifth baby. BeliBea has really and truly been a labor of love.

    It all began after the birth of my first child in 2008. As you know, having a newborn in the house changes everything. For me, the real exhaustion started once I returned to work. Like many moms, I spent the majority of my day pumping. I quickly began to realize just how much time I was losing from both work and home because my hands were constantly tied to the pump. I knew there had to be a solution and my husband agreed, so he decided to take action. By turning one of my old sports bras into a simple, yet brilliant hands-free pumping aid, it was like I had entered a whole new world of motherhood – I could now pump while answering emails, taking a conference call and even while caring for my little one. Honestly, it very well may be the best maternity gift I’ve ever been given and I instantly knew it was something I wanted to share with other mothers.

    Knowing first-hand how easy it is to lose perspective on what a wonderful thing motherhood really is, I set out on a mission to create BeliBea to help give other mothers a way to enjoy each and every tender moment with their little ones. After years of researching and testing with real moms to help us perfect the design, BeliBea is finally here to make the journey of nursing less stressful and more enjoyable. After all, whether it’s your first or fourth child, you should be able to focus on loving, bonding and reveling in the beauty of your little bundle of joy.

    I hope you love the BeliBea line as much as I do. Please reach out and let me know your thoughts and feedback.
    Best wishes to all of the moms out there and those with a new baby on the way!
