With the second wave of COVID-19 upon us, I have decided to bring back Small Business Sundays! Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and we need to support them however we can.
Welcome to Small Business Sunday with First Comes Baby. Diana and Anita are the makers of homemade, organic products geared towards helping mothers heal, from postpartum to pregnancy and infant loss, they have an array of different gifts to cover all needs to put mom in the spotlight again! Located in Spruce Grove, Alberta, they offer pickups, local delivery, and shipping throughout Canada!
What is Unique About Your Business or What Made You Choose This Type of Business?
Our business is unique because we put a lot of effort into our research and development of our products. We make sure to pack our baskets with the most useful items so you’re not stuck with just a bunch of stuff you won’t use. We think of all mother from natural birth to caesarean birth and breast and bottle feeding mothers. Whatever your choice, we want to make sure you get spoiled no matter what!
What is Your Favourite Small Business (Aside From Your Own)?
Our favourite small business is another local momma here in our town who makes custom gifts! @ABCdesigns has fulfilled countless orders for both of us and recently made us keychains with our logo on them for a Christmas gift! Check out her products, you won’t be disappointed.
If You Had One Piece of Advice to Someone Just Starting Out, What Would It Be?
The start of our business was an interesting one. We started in December 2019 and we had our entire 2020 year filled with markets and events to help kick start our business. Thanks to the pandemic, everything was cancelled and we have relied on social media and word of mouth to sell our gift baskets. We absolutely love what we do and care more about helping mothers than generating an income, so we didn’t let it stop us! Our advice is if you love what you do, nothing will stop you!
What Are Your Long-Term Business Goals?
Long-term business goals is to help as many mothers heal as possible.
What Is Your Funniest/Weirdest/Most Memorable Experience With A Customer or Client?
Our most memorable experience with our clients have bee from the mothers who have received our Over the Rainbow box. It is not a happy occasion when these are received, but the feedback we have received that this is exactly what is needed to help them grieve and heal fills our hearts with warmth knowing we could be that little bit of help they need.
