Many people are wondering where this made-up word "BundleBorn" comes from and why I chose this as the name for my practice. Well...it is indeed a made-up word. In fact, it was made up by my daughter, Laila, when she was just 2 years old!
My husband and I had decided to have our children close together. By the time our third daughter was born, we had a 3 yr old (Amara), a 2 yr old (Laila), and now a newborn (Sadie). We were tired for a solid six years. I only have brothers, so I had always wanted to be the mother to daughters. I was over-the-moon in love with my girls!
Thanks to a dear group of friends I had met during the course of my journey into motherhood, I was finally getting the hang of baby wearing by the time Sadie was born. One day while wearing Sadie in my ring sling, Laila said (in her sweetest toddler voice) "Awwww, she wants to be in her bundle born?"
From that day forward, all versions of carriers, slings, and wraps have been called "bundle borns" in our home. I immediately fell in love with her new term and knew in that very instant that I would someday have a practice named BundleBorn. Laila is now about to turn 10 years old and is the biggest cheerleader for BundleBorn Midwifery. She insisted on creating an Instagram account for BundleBorn Midwifery...if you see any random unicorn or Miranda Sings posts its because my marketing manager is a 10 yr old girl.
