Hi, I am Jane and together with my husband, Ivan, we are the founders of KeaBabies.
The story of KeaBabies begins after the birth of our first son during April 2016. As new parents, we were overwhelmed with joy and exhaustion at the same time, not knowing what will happen next through our son’s growing journey. Every day is filled with happiness and surprise for the both of us.
5 months through parenthood, we were thrilled to hear that we were expecting our second son.
Second pregnancy was a breeze during the first and second trimester. However, towards the end of the second trimester, the pregnancy was taking a toll on me… Our first born was about 9 months then, it was the phase where he constantly wants to be held and he's starting to explore the world like a toddler. Being heavily pregnant then, I was unable to carry him or play with him for long as my back will hurt after a short while. That immense feeling of guilt kicked in every time I see him preferring his caregiver over me. And I questioned myself whether I am being a good mother…
Then came the big blow, Ivan got into a very bad bicycle accident which injured his spinal cord.
I was lost…
After the cervical operation, I had to go down to the hospital every day to take care of him, leaving our son with the caregiver. It was a time that I felt like giving up, and I started questioning myself. With all the little voices coming up inside me. Am I a bad mom? Is my unborn baby going to be fine? What is going to happen to our family? Why is all these happening to me? I felt like my whole world came crashing down...
Thankfully, we have the support from our loved ones, we were able to pull through and we came to understand the importance of a support group to turn to whenever we need help and encouragement. With their love and support, Ivan was able to recover progressively after 3 months of physiotherapy, just in time before the birth of our second child.
Since then, we decided to build a brand and community where all mothers and fathers can come together to support one another through the ups and downs of all parenthood journey.
KeaBabies is our birth child, inspired by the love for our sons, Keon and Kash.
During our family trip to New Zealand, we came across the world’s only Alpine Parrot, Kea, which make it unique, just like every child. Kea is known for being highly intelligent and explorative characteristics. We strongly believe that every child is intelligent and curious little explorers in their own unique way. It gave us even more affirmation to spread the importance of parent-child bond to nurture a child’s full potential and it all starts with you!At KeaBabies, we understand that every parenthood journey is unique and has its own sets of challenges. This little one that you have created filled your heart with so much love and joy which you have never experienced before. At the same time, leaving you overwhelmed and emotionally drained at times…
